The Dubai Mall Fountain and

its surrounding buildings are

fairly high, until observed from…

…from the dizzying heights of the Burj Khalifa’s

124th-floor observation deck.

The outdoor observation deck on the

Burj Khalifa’s 124th, of 148 floors, is 1,483 ft high.

 

Looking down from that height it appears

that visitors are looking down on a toy town. 

The photographer kept telling her subjects to

move closer to the edge.

I think the Burj Al Arab is

a fantastic design both

in and outside.

In comparison, the Burj Khalifa is just plain huge.

The geometrical pattern on the exterior of Melbourne’s

National Gallery of Australian Art…

…exacerbating Melbournian’s love/hate relationship

with the building.

 

Prior to the 2006 Commonwealth Games

being held in Melbourne,

Spencer St Railway Station was renovated

and modernised.

Its most notable feature is the waves and arches

which now support a similarly shaped roof.

It was also renamed Southern Cross Station.

 

Around the corner, Flinders Street Station remains

as it was at the beginning of the twentieth century.

To change the exterior facade of

Flinders St would cause a public outcry…

…similar to the outcry when the Flinders Street

clock faces were digitised.

Public backlash forced local authorities

to change the clocks back to analogue faces

with digital workings.

Now Melbournians and visitors alike

are still able to meet under the

Flinders Street clocks as they

have done for many, many decades.

One-Word-Sunday-Bridge

bridge

a structure carrying a road, path, railway, etc.
across a river, road, or other obstacle
~~~~~

To me, this is the most famous, or infamous bridge in the world. 

I think it was a Primary School teacher who

introduced me to Florence’s

Bridge of Sighs

From that day forth it was always

on my mind to see/visit in person

Was it because I crossed it in a previous life? 

Some I know would heartily agree.

 

Dubai’s elevated railway appears to be

one long bridge stretching through the city.

 

 

One of my favourite New Zealand landscapes.

 

 

Finally, the bridge everyone recognises.

Sydney Harbour Bridge.
