Cardinal direction..



There is a good chance that most people wouldn't look up and spot the tall mast ship weather-vane atop the St Georges Terrace entrance to London Court, middle of the shot below. I love both tall ships and weather-vanes so I usually have a glance up to see which way the wind is blowing when on the terrace. I quite fancy the idea of a weather-vane but the process of choosing could take years, check out the surprise surprise Art Deco :) selection here, gorgeous aren't they. Do you have/or would like to have a weather-vane, if so what would you choose? Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  2. You know that I like a nice weather vane and that's certainly a super one. Unfortunately I don't have anywhere on my house where I could put one.

  4. I have no where to put one on my place! I do like that ship. There are a couple of whales in my area that are quite nice too.

  6. I don’t think I’d have spotted the weather vane in that location. Interesting. I love them but choosing one would be tough.

  8. Weather vanes are wonderful instruments, and you found a good one. I'm also impressed by your long lens. Yes, I also like the Art Deco weather vanes. The sailing ship is all about the wind.

  9. ...that poor tiny classic building looks sandwiched in between those tall ugly things!

  10. I love weather vanes and as you might imagine, I see very few of them here in the desert southwest. This one reminds me very much of one I saw in London.

  11. I am always looking up, looking like a country bumpkin in the city for the first time staring up at tall buildings. Wow, there are some stunning weather vanes. You are right. Hard to choose.

  13. That's a very nice vane. My husband would love it. We have a neighbor who put a pig with wings vane on her barn when it was new.

  17. Shame on me, Grace, indeed I haven´t looked up, obviously!
    But to be fair we usually enter from the other side...

    Haha, guess I´d choose the witch, too tempting and also Ingo would need to get a black cat for me ;-)

  18. I haven't looked up either Grace, as I have never noticed it :) Who knew there were so many choices for weather-vanes? I would probably go for the rooster.

  20. I am wondering if the high rises around the weather vanes influence the direction of the wind and so gives a wrong answer.
