Just because.....!


Do you ever put a picture up just because there's something about it that grabs your imagination and for an instant transports you out of your everyday reality.. Walking along St. George's Terrace in search of a 'facade' image for July's theme, passing London Court (super link), hugely popular with tourists as well as a handy shortcut through to the Hay St. Mall for office workers on the terrace looking to do a bit of shopping or have lunch. Glancing up through the court the contrast between the suited gent walking away from me and the man walking towards me seemed worlds apart, the light appealed to me too. I hope that you enjoy it also, and that you have a wonderful weekend..take care.....

  1. I just answered your question on my blog with a looong bit of info re. peonies and ants.

    You are a sharp observer and it's true that the two men's worlds are probably worlds apart.

  3. Oh it makes me wonder about their lives - what a moment you've frozen in time! I hope you get more good photo-walking weather through the weekend. And that it's a relaxing one. (Yes, I do yoga very occasionally, I really ought to do it more:)

  5. The curve above and the man walking towards you made me think of a market in Africa, in Egypt!! Great pic to feed imagination! And yes, it seems that worlds are beside, but stranger one to an other..
    Have a happy week-end, great Gracie!

  6. Perhaps it's a time portal, and those two really are in different worlds.

  7. Excellent shot Grace. My initial random thought was, Is it a shopping mall, or a souk? !

  9. Thank you very much. I clicked on the link. I looked down the street with a beautiful atmosphere of Elizabethan times. Amazing place. It's a piece of traditional England. Pleasant place.

  10. I take a LOT of photos "just because" but few turn out as well as this one. :)) This phot really appeals to me...the light, the arches, the different styles of dress, the colours....

  15. The archway shape seems to rather suit the man walking towards you rather than the man walking away. Interesting shot.

  16. Could have been Egypt and not Perth.

  17. Yes, I like it very much. But Tudor England meets Manhattan banker meets Afghan shopper is making my end spin!

  34. Somehow, it does not look like the Australia that I imagine in my mind.
    Have a nice weekend too! Bon weekend à toi!

  35. The man in the middle of the picture and all the light through the portal...
    ...give me the impression that if we cross the portal we will find ourselves in the middle of a busy souk!
    God bless you!
