A rose between two thorns..



I remember a time, not so long ago, when taking a shot from this spot the main feature was the Bell Tower. Now here I am looking at it through a giant 'paperclip' sandwiched between the two Ritz-Carlton towers, that's urban evolution for you. The best view of the Bell Tower is now looking down Barrack Street or up Riverside Drive, or maybe from the river. Was thinking it's about time I took another ride to the top of the tower to take a new overview of Elizabeth Quay.. watch this space 😉 Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  1. sometimes growth is good. sometimes growth is bad. In this case, I think both views show the good as the bell tower has not been replaced by gigantic glass skyscrapers.

  2. The bell tower looks a bit like a wasp sting if you ask me.

  3. It is such a beautiful tower, Grace! Our cities just seem to keep building and building more things!

  4. An impressive skyline. To my mind though these modern buildings look their best in bright sunshine or else illuminated at night. Not so good on grey rainy days such as we often get in the UK.

  8. It's being encircled by giant glass buildings! Buildings are going up everywhere. I always wonder, who fills all these buildings.

  9. Yes, please do go up in the tower and take lots of photos. I hope that is the end of the highrise buildings at the Quay.

  13. Cityscapes certainly change over time. Even in the time I've lived in Washington state the skyline of Seattle has changed quite a bit. But I've yet to see a view quite as interesting as the ones you've posted here. Perth is a beautiful city.

  14. Yes. Hmmm. What can I say. Bell Tower sadly had to take a step back, kinda.
    I´m still not totally at peace with Elizabeth Quay ;-)

  15. I was there on Monday and also commented on the fact that the Bell Tower is sadly now engulfed between those high-risers. Nice photos Grace.

  16. Cities have a way of morphing. I am often astounded as the number of cranes in Sydney and Melbourne - especially Melbourne where they are more visible because the city has a flatter terrain

  17. Cities are changing all the time nowadays, but I like the Paperclip!
