Art Deco Reuse

This wonderful Art Deco building was built in 1933 as part of a city waste management complex but is now wonderfully renovated and restored. It now houses Grace, an event venue, and Toben, a catering/event space. Fabulous isn't it?

Jurassic Windowsill

This is as close as I could safely get to these monsters that I spotted on a windowsill along a laneway. I'm sure that house is safe with these guard creatures on duty!

Good Luck On Adelaide St W

An elephant with its trunk up is supposed to be good luck so this colourful mural on Adelaide St W is certainly wishing us well. It is on the side of Kiin, a Thai restaurant. There seems to be no artist info for this one.

Pink Lillies

Our lily season is coming towards the end but there have been some spectacular ones around. These pink ones were particularly beautiful.

"Sing A Song...."

This little Song Sparrow was poking around beneath a bird feeder looking for treats when I spotted it. They are one of my favourite birds mostly because of their sweet song.

Down A Laneway

You all know how I love wandering about the laneways of the older parts of the city and it is not just garages that you find along them. There are often older commercial buildings built behind the houses many years ago that served as mechanic shops, dairies, etc. I spotted this large building recently and I'm not sure what it was originally but is now used as a residence. I love that large arched window you can see and there is also a roof deck.

A Mystery

I found this cute green structure along a boulevard by a school yard where there are several community maintained gardens so I assume that this was installed for entertainment of some kind. There seems to be a solar collector on the top and that dark rectangle along the post is a glass viewing opening but the glass is all fogged up and opaque. It is a complete mystery as to what it is and I could find no info at all.
