City of Perth Library.. reflections.




The curved glass entrance foyer of the City of Perth Library is the perfect foil for reflections of the surrounding heritage buildings in Cathedral Square.  The square, bound by St. George's Terrace, Barrack Street, Hay Street and Pier St. see map has been beautifully restored..


Below, on the library terrace looking down into the heart of the library and last shot Council House and St. George's Cathedral reflected in the terrace windows.. Hope you are having a really good Easter weekend, I'm hoping for a much safer on the roads long weekend than our last, drive safe and take care.. p.s. big catch up today!

  3. These are all superb photos, but I really like the first one with the chair legs providing a plethora of vertical lines which are extremely striking. What a great place!

  4. Those beautiful curved glass windows off so many opportunities for different photo perspectives. You could visit here many times and produce different photos each time. Love the first photo with the chairs looking like a webby band.

  8. Wonderful design. I'd love to go inside. There are lots of libraries of architectural interest. Ours is 19th Century and has been through a gorgeous restoration.
