Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. I have
It was a pretty morning (and pretty chilly too).
My new bus stop is beside community gardens. I have never seen anyone in the gardens and the beds looks to be vacant at the moment (though they were full in summer). The scarecrows are interesting though and I don't think I have seen 'canoodling' scarecrows before.
Two buses later I reached town. Not only is my bus stop further away, the one in town has also been shifted. So come wander through the streets with me.
The bearded raven was obviously in familiar territory as the crap stained seat it perched on testified.
This statue is 'Little Big Man' by Dean Bowen.
I do like the splashes of colour.
I think the ACT Memorial (which was commissioned to honour people who have had an association with my city and territory who have served their country in war, confict, peace keeping and humanitarian missions) is an elegant addition.
I like the textured wall to the Commonwealth Bank too.
This nice bus driver was taking the bike for a ride (which stems from a family joke triggered when a work colleague's daughter told her how nice the farmers were always taking their cattle for a drive.)
I liked this painting which filled the window of a shop under renovation too. The art was sponsored by Transport Canberra (one good thing they are doing) and City Service and a Youth and Community Centre.
The walls of the take-away fish and chip shop have charm as well.
As does this delightful colourful and textured planter.
I am still peeved at the changes to our bus system (and not alone) but I am also seeing parts of the city I didn't see often in the past. A small positive.
