An exercise in symmetry..



Blue skies once again in the city yesterday. You may or may not believe me but it's true, I haven't touched up these shots at all.. oh well ok maybe the second shot just a little :) I've shown His Majesty's Theatre on the corner of Hay and King St.before but yesterday I thought I'd have a bit of fun with the details. Built at the beginning of the 1900's in what was described as 'a fine example of Federation or Edwardian Baroque architecture'.. I'd say the latter, what do you think?


Whichever architectural style, I prefer it so much more to it's next door companion below! Will have to go to a performance here soon to show you the inside, it's luuuverly! You can have a sneak peek here. Hope you've had a good week, happy Friday, take care and stay safe... p.s. only four more days until Love-a-tree-day on the 16th May.. who's hugging a tree and showing with me :)
