Melbourne trams…

…run on light rail

Suburban Railway Station in an

older part of Melbourne.

 

 

Country rail taking goods to…

…regional areas of Victoria.

My first visit to Melbourne to view

Street Art provided some

unexpected sights.

The subject may have been the bird

or the boarded up window.

However, for this exercise the subject is

the ladies cosmetics bag…on the window sill.

An artist whose name eludes me sneaks

in during the night and leaves his

small creations behind.

This bag appeared to be made

of solid concrete and was

firmly attached to the window sill.

In other words it was going nowhere in a hurry.

This lady’s purse is displayed in Bourke St (Melbourne),

just outside the Elizabeth Street Post Office.

It is large enough to accommodate

three or four backsides along

the far side/bottom of the purse.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Roofs

Roofs from everywhere.

Beginning with a Carousel roof

in Beaune, France.

 

Still in Beaune a Band Rotunda.

Another Beaune image

taken through window,

I suspect.

Moving on to Paris and

this image captured from

the Eiffel Tower.

Sadly I also suspect that this is a section of the

Notre Dame de Paris roof

that is no more….or at least badly damaged.

The roof/ceiling of Platform 9 and 3/4.

If you are a Harry Potter fan you will

know that this can be found in

London’s King’s Cross Station.

Somewhat closer to home

an Arcade roof in Melbourne

Back in Geelong, the slate roof of a Church.

I commenced  with a Carousel an now

I will end with another,

The Geelong Carousel.

Many years ago we named the

foreground artwork, ‘The Sharks Teeth’

Too many ‘Jaws’ movies I think.

Only found out this year that

they are actually sailing boats.

Even though I have seen this type of boat

on the Bay several times there was no connection

I think they always will be the ‘Sharks Teeth’  🙂

Beginning in Melbourne,

ending in  Africa.

A busker in Melbourne.

Not a large crowd watching…

…watching this busker, entertainer, contortionist

thread her way through the hoop.

I deliberately did not take a rear shot

of this young lady, opting instead for a side view.

I would love to see her perform again as I am

sure my camera has not done justice

to her very slim figure.

The back of an African elephant’s ear.

Our guide (with tongue firmly planted in his cheek)

described this as the whole of Africa

Until I passed by this outdoor skating rink I had never seen one.

Melbourne has one.

Mostly children skating, hence the cropping of heads.

And when it was time for a coffee and whatever one desired,

this Melbourne laneway probably had as many people in it

as my home town’s entire population.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-L

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-L

(Needs to have at least two syllables)

Next week I will read instructions first!

Lions, lights and lamps do not fit.
But Geelong’s Laneway art,  does.

 

So does Melbourne’s Laneway art.

A Leopard is good.

 

Along with a Leemur at Melbourne’s Zoo.

 

Although the foreground is what I know as fog grass,

not very nutritious for livestock and a bit of a weed,

it still does form part of the

Moorabool Valley roadside landscape.
