101


One of the few good things about working on a Sunday is that you can take photos of the foyer of your office
 building without all those pesky workers getting in the way...

The colour of water

Other stuff I saw today...

Downstairs


Upstairs. They like those fruit trees...what are those tiny oranges called again?
This is Commercial Road, Prahran


Letter boxes in my street

 
I like when the late afternoon sun hits the Manchester
Unity Building in the city.

Sign-a-rama

At the Flinders/Elizabeth Street tram terminal. Odd they put up a
permanent sign when the show's on for 10 days a year.


25 South Australia. What?


Fantastic Coke sign, Commercial Road, Prahran


This is a multi-sign extravaganza a few doors up from the one above.
Let's look closer...


Can you make out the sign for The Herald underneath?
 (The Herald and The Sun merged in the late 1980s.)


Four 'n Twenty pies...


Four 'n Twenty and Streets icecream


 This coke bottle is pretty ace too.


I love that they called this The Big Store and put
 it on the building! It's at the back of the
building where Prahran Coles is (click to enlarge).


 Fantastic! What a shame they boarded over  the windows.
It even housed an ironmonger.  If you look closely at the top,
you can make out McLelland something (click to enlarge).


It also housed a mercery. Whassat?

It's a kind of magic

The magic bit of the Our Magic Hour art installation atop the Sportsgirl
 building in Richmond  tonight.

Our Magic Hour reflecting on the Yarra River.

Monday Monday

What are they building here near AAMI Park?


 A lovely window in Fitzroy


 An alley off Gertrude Street, Fitzroy

 
It's a hard life being cherubic. Victoria Street, Richmond.

Clearing

The fog was completely gone less than 10 minutes later

Please see that this door is locked


A quaint and well-preserved sign in Waratah Lane in the city. I like the wording, the font and that it appearsas if it were hand painted. There's a matching sign on the opposite side of the doorway too.


It is - or was? - the doorway to an electricity sub-station.

The Doll's House

My favourite thing at the Heide Museum of Modern Art (this, and the library at Heide I, but I couldn't take photos of that).

Remains of the day

Sunset on water
