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. This week I am branching out a bit. It occurred to me that I almost never show the urban side of my city, so I took my camera with me when I went to do my shift at Lifeline.
This building is being constructed right beside a bus interchange. And as the photographs beneath this first one show it is going to be exclusive apartments and I think a hotel. I really don't understand why they are building in that spot though. The rooms on the top levels would have nice views but the ones lower down would definitely not.
Some snippets from inside the first shopping centre.
I have become more alert to store door handles since seeing the dachshund handle in town a few weeks back.
Into the city proper. It was early when I took these photos and we are still only gradually emerging from lockdown - hence the lack of people.
The statue of Ethos stands outside our Legislative Assembly. Her uplifted wings apparently represent the spirit of the community.
Pedestrians have right of way on this street in the inner city - which works surprisingly well.
Even in the city there are green spaces. This one often has crimson rosellas singing in the trees.
The statue represents our servicemen (in this case though some are women) and the separation from their families. It is carved from a single block of granite (sourced in Victoria).
Heading home again now. And definitely much more in my comfort zone.
I hope that your week to come is safe, happy and splattered with beauty.
