I died and went to Art Deco Heaven..



How is it possible that I've lived in Perth for over thirty years and not entered into this gem of a building that I've passed so many times unaware of the fabulousness within! I'm not going to tell you about this blissful discovery today as I haven't had time to edit the shots but will tease you with a doorknob or ten :) The building is named after the mythological strong man depicted and no it's not the Hulk :) any guesses? Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  7. He used to be a 97 lb weakling as I recall...Mr. Atlas, that is.

    Re your comment on the reflection: I used a Photoshop "action." It was created by Mr. Panos. If you use Photoshop, I can point you in the right direction. Perhaps it would be best if you sent me an email - yanson2@aol.com.

  9. Never mind, I see it. I can't delete it for some reason so perhaps you could do that. Thanks! :))

  10. Some others beat me to it, but as soon as I saw that doorknob I thought of Atlas! What a great find Grace.

  11. Those are great door knobs. I have always liked Art Deco design, and this one is terrific. Of course the character is obvious holding the world on his shoulders.

  12. What fun to discover a new place, even if it has been waiting for your visit for a long time. You have a great group of clever blogger whom you cannot fool. I'm assume that Atlas is the answer.

  13. Your second photo suggests that the answer is Atlas, although I thought of Hercules at first. Places like this give us some connection to where we came from.
