Elizabeth Quay.. eating my words!



Even though there is still a long way to go before complete, Elizabeth Quay was officially opened to the public last Friday, I didn't make it then but did go and check it out on Monday. After all my wittering on about how awful Betty's Jetty (thanks Angie) aka EQ was going to be I was totally unprepared to 'quite' like it.. can you believe it :) If you are interested in bridges you can see the design plans here (super photos too) for the 110mtr long pedestrian/cyclist crossing spanning the new inlet under which the ferries will now come from south of the river into the new terminal. As it is now, before the high-rise development unfortunately begins it is a tres photogenic space, there will be many more angles to explore.. show you the controversial new sculpture tomorrow! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  1. I am glad you now like Elizabeth's Quay as your views are more in line with your daughter's. That bridge is terrific. I'll bet it gets constant foot and bike traffic. Perfect that it is not for cars.

  12. I wonder if those 'steel strings' will sing in the wind (rather like a Aeolian Harp). I'm sure you will go back to take more great pics!!

  13. Oh my. You have your own arch, or a pare of them. Makes me thing of the double-arch bridges the Japanese call megane, or eyeglasses.

  22. Neat the way the arches look like plain old arches until viewed from the side. Mathematical precision at its best. Oh, it is supposed to be art and not science!

  23. I was with you all the way--until you mentioned the high rises. What a pity they have to sully a shoreline.

  24. Great shots. I'd like to come over to Perth now and see this place in person.
