Central Park.....!!

Central Park (history) is situated on St. George's Terrace right in the heart of Perth's CBD and is considered premium office space. It is 226 mtrs tall (the tip of the building is 261.7 mtrs above sea level) and is Perth's tallest skyscraper at the moment, but will soon be taken over by City Square which will be 270 mtrs when completed. Central Park is host to the 'annual stair climb'... 53 flights of stairs to the roof (I don't think so!!) and in 2008 raised over $103,000 for Multiple Sclerosis..!! I took this shot from the 'other side' on Hay St. because I wanted to bring in a few more textural elements. Well, another week begins.....with a little luck, peacefully.....!

  1. This one is a delight, Grace . . . light, shadows, thick and strong lines, bunches of thin lines. Let's hope this week is more relaxing than the last few have been. Boring can be good.

  2. The angle of the shot definitely highlights all that Jack (above) has mentioned.

  15. Très impressionnant!
    Mais je constate qu'à Perth, on peut jouer le remake de "An affair to remember". On peut se donner rendez-vous sur la terrasse, en haut de Central Park, dans 6 mois, et voir si notre amour tient toujours...
    Qui sait?... :-)
