Shadows, shapes and sailing ships!



Can't believe it's the first time I've spotted the fantastical sailing ship weather-vane atop the St. Georges Terrace entrance to ye old London Court, how cool is that, j'adore! Will get a better shot when I remember to take my long lens! When looking at this image I was struck by how many angles and shapes there were.. then, as well as having a bit of fun with black, white and spot colour above, I couldn't stop myself inverting, you would have done the same right :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  4. Honey you spotted and shot-ted a great urban tableau that is art in and of itself as you show it, but also says much about Australia and the English peoples and their history. Bully for you, Mate ami!
