Oh la! What a view!



A small section of the apartments that line Mill Point Road in South Perth. The views from these apartments, some luxury, some made less ordinary by their location, across the foreshore and Swan River to the city, are spectacular. Perfect spot to watch the annual fireworks each 26th January! Only a stone's throw away from the Perth Zoo I wonder if the residents can hear the lions roar on a summers evening while sipping their drinks on the balcony :) The three feathers sculpture below on the foreshore titled 'Resonance' by WA artist Amanda Shelsher 'reflect the memories of many generations of people that once stood here and a reminder of the abundant wildlife that was once in this area'. I'm happy to say that in the few hours we were there we saw many, many birds. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  7. These luxury apartments seem to overlook a giant soccer pitch. Interesting sculpture. That is a great city skyline, but I like your night shot from yesterday better.

  11. This looks like a great place to live and enjoy the views, the fireworks, the art and wildlife. I'm betting there is even a couple of nice restaurants near by which would make it perfect.

  15. Reminds me of some of the coastal cities in the USA. The water looks really inviting. This is day 46 of over 32-33C temperature.

  16. I hadn't seen the feather sculptures yet, but I haven't been to South Perth for a while.
    Love that area, wish I could afford one of those apartments....

  18. A strange (spam) comment here above :). The first photo reminds me a bit of new buildings in Amsterdam along the river IJ border in the north part. Only without palmtrees of course.
