This side and that..



I might have shown this view before but each time I find myself here, as I did last week, it is  irresistibly impossible not to take another shot. Standing at the top of St Georges Terrace looking down into the city through the Barracks Arch, all that is left of the Pensioner's Barracks (scroll down to see original barracks) is one of my favourite views. In the same spot in the opposite direction across the freeway is Parliament House. I don't think the view here, constructed 1958/64 is it's best side, the Harvest Terrace side, built in 1902 is lovely, will get over there and take some pics soon. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  5. Some pretty fancy brickwork on that arch - nobody bothers with details like that today.

  7. While I like black and white photos often enough, only a colour photo does justice to colours of the brickwork in the arch.

  8. Too bad the entire building was not preserved. At least the stately tower was saved.

  9. Is this similar to Noah's arch? No, it's much more beautiful! Love the brick. And love that view across the freeway. It doesn't seem that traffic is very bad, though. Our major roads are always jammed. Mostly wall-to-wall. And finally, as Tom said, the cars are going the wrong way. 👀👣😳

  10. I can see why that would be a favorite view. The brickwork alone is stunning and you can't beat an arched opening for framing a view.

  11. Arches are in Grace and that's a nice view through the arch. I love arches, they are irresistible to photograph.

  12. The brick work on that arch is pretty special. And, it is as if the designer knew that photographers would love the framing of the view that it provides.

  15. Beautiful indeed, Grace! I think that´s where the Unknown Photographer is nearby, right.

  16. Excellent showing why it is so much nicer to look through a smaller frame then in the open. By moving in you discover new views while in the open it keeps the same. I like it.
