A walk on the wild side......!

James Street in Northbridge is one of the more 'colourful' areas in the city..Clubs, restaurants and a few 'seedy joints' too. It also happens to be where the Paradiso my favourite 'alternate' cinema is (foreign movies, just to be clear on what I mean by alternate haha!) So on the way up to Cinema  Paradiso we start with The Brass Monkey pub (TheBrassMonkey).....
On the other side of the road is The Tattoo Shop (TheTattooShop) cool little video with this one if you're interested in that kind of thing....

A little further up the street there are a couple of 'adult' shops which I should have snapped but didn't...  Moving on towards the top end of James Street are the cafes and restaurants, like Little Saigon,  Vietnamese food.....
Here we go through the black and white sculpture created by Lorenna Grant called the Arch (TheArch) , one of the many sculptures in Northbridge where they have spent a lot of money upgrading the area.....
Arriving at our destination I noticed this super little sports car parked in the side lane next to the cinema, I liked the coloured wall against the shiny red of the car....
Et voila we arrive at Cinema Paradiso to see 'Angele & Tony' a French movie of course, which we enjoyed immensely! It's said that the Paradiso has a house ghost, I wonder if this is the blurry image of he/she here, or..... it could be that I just took a rubbish picture haha! It does look a bit 'spooky', what do you think.....?

  4. your companionship would suit me right down to the ground, judging by your professed interests and preoccupations . . .
    Truth is, you were too shy to photo the 'adult' shops, eh? LOL

  5. I like alternative movies, too. This area doesn't look too seedy. It looks interesting.

  6. Once again I can't see all pics (why does this happen to me!) Northbridge sure has improved over the years. BTW I knew Lorenna years ago, she has also just installed an artwork in Yanchep.

  12. i'm definitely going with ghostly emanations. you were wise to skip the exterior of the adult shop, they're usually just solid walls and blackened windows, aren't they?

  13. I love the diverse parts of towns like these, and arthouse/alternative cinema too. You caught the ghost of films past as well- intriguing!
