Parochial views..

 

 I took the view of the city here from the front gardens of St Columba's Catholic Church in South Perth. Build in 1936 St Columba's consists of school, presbytery and convent and is on the State Register of Heritage Places for reasons that 'it is an intact collection of buildings forming an historic Catholic group and, distinguished by the prominence of the site, is a regional landmark'. It is indeed in an excellent spot with views out over the Swan River to the city. Happy Good Friday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. P got honked three times on the way to golf yesterday, not all that many people on the road at 6am.. and yes he did see the funny side of it :)

  1. First image is beautiful but your second is blank.
    Blogger is also not correctly updating your posts to reflect when you post them. They are running a day behind, and never did that before.

  3. Pretty shots. Even though we are half a world away, it looks very similar to our churches and missions in S CA. Photo #1, with the red tile roof, and what looks like a sycamore tree, looks just like my local neighborhood!

  10. You made me smile widely with P getting honked. Are they autumn leaves or burnt summer leaves, or a bit of both?
