FOWChallenge-Corridor

corridor

a long passage in a building from which
doors lead into rooms.

An external internal corridor at

Mt Sheba Resort,

South Africa.

Melbourne’s

Royal Arcade

could be considered a corridor

It’s certainly an internal passage of sorts

with doors leading to rooms

which we called shops.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Ornate

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Ornate

~~~~~

I think ‘ornate’ is in the eye of the beholder.
stained-glass_1534For example the craftsmanship which has gone into

creating these stain glass windows is something

we would be unlikely to see today,

and yet at the time of creation was probably

not considered outstanding.

arcade_0518This skylight in one of Melbourne’s Arcades is not ornate…
arcade_0511but I think the wrought iron work is.

grid-tiles_0513

And immediately below the skylight is what reminds me of…arcade_0517

the Roman Tessellated Pavement in one of

Canterbury’s (U.K.) main streets…from memory.

Gog-Magog_0020Back in Melbourne we have the Royal Arcade

with Gog and Magog

keeping visitors aware of time as it passes.

Again I think the seven-foot high effigies are ornate

as is the Victorian Era Arcade,

which has been listed on the

Victorian Heritage Register.
