As the crow flies...



As the crow flies you are one kilometre from the original General Post Office on the corner of Barrack Street and St. Georges Terrace.. 
Artist Anne Neil

Forgetting rule number four (?) in the photographers handbook :) to look up now and then, I must have passed this quirky weather vane by Perth artist Anne Neil a hundred times while on St. Georges Terrace.. my bad! Although I'm not so fond of crows, noisy creatures, I think this is a pretty cool feature, I do love the terrace :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  1. Oh, I do love this one -- and I'm not fond of crows either as there are a number of them in a tree across the street from me and they are NOISY!! And they also try to gobble up all the food I put out for the squirrels and little birds!! But this is great!! Hope your week is going well, Grace!!

  21. Oh, Grace, you got me! I missed it, too! But I still fight with remembering looking down on the ground, didn´t know about this rule, but it sure makes a lot of sense, too! ;-)
