Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Anything-Painted

~~~~~

~~~~~

A painted utility box in Geelong.

Maybe a telephone junction.

 

 

Hosier Lane…

 

…in Melbourne.

 

 

Peeling paint.

 

 

In April 1975 I enjoyed a camping holiday

through Central Australia.

In Alice Springs we visited

Henk Guth’s (now deceased) art studio

where I purchased this painting

of Ormiston Gorge

for the princely sum of $150.

Inside looking out.

With our branding legislation as it is,

it is difficult to know if this sign means

the whole train or the window

to which the sign is affixed.

Outside looking in.

Commuter train arriving at

Geelong North Station

from Melbourne.

 

 

Dubai train.

MGW loved these trains because ladies and children

sit apart from male train travellers.

 

A Rhineland train.

A Melbourne train from Melbourne’s Sofitel Hotel.

We were there for breakfast after our

Hot Air balloon flight over Melbourne.

The view is from the male public toilets.

FOWChallenge-Landmark

~~~~~

~~~~~

Landmarks from any where

The Eiffel Tower…324 metres high.

The Tower in which Big Ben (the Bell)

resides is 96 metres high.

According too Google the

Geelong Football Club ground

is 5.1 kilometres as the crow flies.

Without the light towers, which are 73 metres high,

the ground would be difficult to spot

even from this vantage point.

***

Although I don’t have a photo,

this morrning Melbourne was laying claim to

having the tallest Southern hemisphere building.

At 388 metres high, the 108 storey

hotel and apartment building

is located in Melbourne’s

Southbank area.

FOWChallenge-Central

~~~~~

~~~~~

Southern Cross Railway Station,

and…

…Flinders Street Station where you…

meet under the clocks,

are both at the edge of Melbourne’s CBD.

However, at either station one can catch

the City Loop

(our underground – short as it may be),

leave the train at

Melbourne Central Station

and you will save a four block walk

from either station.

Don’t know why I haven’t thought

of that before today..  🙂

I have seen/photographed

a few murals in Australia…

…but none as good as the

Chemainus Murals…

…at Chemainus…

…on Canada’s…

~~~~~

…Vancouver Island.

~~~~~

Closer to home…

…is Melbourne’s…

…Hosier Lane.

 

I love the Hosier Lane street art…

 

…some of which is surrounded…

 

 

…by graffiti.
