The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through life. The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
Like River I usually run with a theme. This week I am taking you on another outing. With no birds, water, sunrises or sunsets. (I know, almost unheard of.)
The arts are well represented here. The Chief Minister who gave us a lot of our public art works (and the Arboretum bless him) was devoted to the arts. When our city was established a 'temporary structure' the Kingston Power House provided the city with coal-generated electricity from 1915 to 1957. After that the building was left vacant and fell into disrepair.
However, in May 2007, that same arts conscious Chief Minister reopened the Powerhouse as The Canberra Glassworks, maintaining many of its original fixtures and fittings.
It provides local, national and international glass artists with access to state of the art equipment and also showcases their work. There is work for sale, and the public are invited to take glass making classes. If I tolerated heat better and my hands didn't shake I would take classes in a heart beat.
Recently we went along to see 'The Chandelier Show'. As always, some of them I love and some are not to my taste. None of them would fit in our home (even if I could afford them).
Please join me in marvelling at the skill involved.
And some detail from the installation.
And some detail from this one too.
There are some lovely things in the shop too.
We were able to watch work under way, and admire some partially finished pieces.
It is a fascinating place - and there is always something new to look at.
