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.

And, as an additional bonus, there were splashes of colour and whimsy on my way through the largely empty city centre.
This autumnal display caught my eye immediately.
I loved the dog doorhandle - which is on a shop which is closed for business at the moment.
I hope that all of you find beauty and joy. Stay safe, stay well.
