Questions, questions, questions?




 Corner of William and Wellington.. 9am Monday morning. Don't you wonder when you see people pouring off the train into the city, where did they come from, where are they going? The two young girls below pulling their cases, were they arriving in Perth or leaving, did they enjoy their stay or were they glad to be leaving? Why didn't I ask them while I was waiting to cross? Is the man with the huge earphones listening to music, learning a language, on the phone? Did you notice Tartine Cafe to the left on the corner, no question as to where I was going :) What about the fretwork on The Royal Hotel isn't it gorgeous, check the link.. might be an excellent place to stay when you come to Perth! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. mega migraine last two days :( off to bed early catch up today..

  1. Ah, but it's clear that the bridge is "gross". Don't go there. :-)

  2. Oh yes, I do that all the time too! Of course I don't ever really ask anyone, but sometimes it's fun to make up my own thoughts about their day. Especially when in a new city. Those are the times I wonder, are they like me, or do they live here! Lovely captures, your second one reminds me a bit of New Orleans, the railing about the building. Very decorative and pretty.

  4. Oh, no!! Not the "gross" bridge!! Revrunner is right -- don't go there!! But my first thought when I opened your post was that it did indeed look like New Orleans!! And, yes, I'm so sorry about the migraine, too!! Hope you rest well and that it has disappeared when you awake!!

  5. My first thought was that everyone is bundled up so summer is over for you! Sorry about the migraine - be well, Grace!

  6. I wonder about that sort of thing all the time, Grace. When I was in college, I used to ride buses for their entire route, just to people-watch. I'd sit in restaurants for long periods of time, noticing little things about people, trying to figure out their stories. That's what writers do...most of us, anyway.

  8. Everyone has their coats and scarfs on. It must have been a chilly morning. Yes, I do wonder about the people milling about in cities. Especially in places like London. I'll sit in a café and try to decide if the people I see live there or are tourists like me.

  10. Oh poor you, get better soon. This is a great piece both words and pictures...

  11. I wonder the same thing about people as they walk around.

  12. It surprises me to see coats and scarves in Perth at any time of year. Interesting that you call the main highway a freeway, like they do in California. The term is hardly used in the rest of the US.

  13. Sometimes don't you just want to stop people and ask them their story?

  14. People to meet and schedules to keep Grace.

  15. If and when I'm at an airport I will always look at people and ask myself these questions.

  16. It is funny to see you all dressed in cardigans and long sleeves and trousers, while we are now enjoying the beach life!

  17. Sorry you've been dealing with a migraine! EW!

    Yep, I do wonder about people - where they've been and where they are going.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, be braver, ask! I wouldn´t dare, though, I guess.
    Guess next time... it will be the caravan park again...
    Sorry about the migraine, Grace! Acupuncture helped me get rid of it over 10 years ago, I´m free ever since. Btw I sent you the WA-t-shirt-data via e-mail, did it arrive?

  20. My immediate environment does not offer busy places like this. But, when I am traveling and in this kind of environment, I usually am so busy looking at the buildings and the people that I don't evaluate it as imaginatively and creatively as I might. Speaking of travelling, we had to cancel our trip to Ireland and am so sad!!

  21. I thought that was Aimee pulling the suitcase at first - wrong tone of red? Judging by the flight tags on the cases, I'd say that they are new arrivals. Just call me Miss Marple. The guy with the headphones is simply being anti social. It's a terrible trend and dangerous too as they can't hear danger coming. Rant over.

  22. Your busy places are much more ordinate than ours...

  23. These street scenes suggest that winter is finally filtering into Perth. I wonder about people too and use clues of dress or accessories to symbolise what they may be all about. A fascinating past-time, especially if enoying a cafe coffee.

  24. So, I see you are a big fan of people watching. Me, too.

    Migraine? Ohhhh. That is bad. Hope you are well soon.
