Reflections around the Bishop's See.....


When we were in the city on Monday my aim was to take some shots of the 'Bishops See' which I'll tell you bit more about when I get the actual pictures. Forgetting that it was a holiday, I hadn't banked on the garden being closed, another day. The gardens are at the top end of St. George's Terrace and are surrounded by skyscraper office buildings, most of which have glass facades, thus making the perfect foil for reflections, the reflections in the top shot are of the buildings in the second, which are across the gardens from them. I think I might have mentioned (a few times) that St. George's Terrace is definitely my favorite spot in the city, it may look all 'high powered' business, but the mix of very old and new works so well together, you'll see..I plan to show it in more detail so that you can see why I love it so much. The weather's not looking too bright in Perth this weekend, huge storms on Sunday apparently, sounds like a good day to finish the book I've been reading for ages, hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care.....

  2. These are both terrific photos but the first one is special...looks like you built a frame around the building. Fantastic reflections!

    Re your question: I do believe the lady is Carole Lombard. Of course, i could be wrong but it would be the first time! Heh, heh. I used to tell my students stuff like that and they'd laugh and laugh!

  12. While the sky looks very grey, the photos are bright. Glass buildings can look quite good if they are reflecting an image of a nice building.

  16. Your first photo is exceptional, Grace. It is sharp and makes it appear that you have trapped those buildings inside another one.
