Sunday Selections #70

It's Sunday Selections time again!

Time to post photos that you've never posted before. Or maybe you have , but think they deserve another viewing.
This idea comes to us from Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, who takes many, many photos, as we all do, and wanted to show them off. Particularly her fantastic moons and sunsets.

A once a week meme seemed like a good idea, so Sunday Selections was born and anyone at all vcan join in.

This week, I'm featuring three pieces of art that I photographed recently on my wanderings.

Metal Art

These window screens are much prettier than the usual bars or grids.

The Slide. This was in our Rundle Mall last summer. I'm not sure if it is still there, maybe it has been moved on. I forgot to photograph the plaque that was on the plinth.

This interesting piece is in a local reserve close to my home. I have no idea what it represents, there doesn't appear to be any signs indicating who made it or what it is.

To join in with Sunday Selections, simply post photos of your choice under the Sunday Selections title, link back to Kim, then hop on over to the Frog Ponds and add your name to the linky list before leaving Kim a comment.
How easy is that?!


  1. I remember seeing the Roger David store in the Mall, but I don't remember the sculpture. Perhaps I was so blown away by the pigs I failed to notice other sculptures.

  2. I love these River - thank you. I think The Slide is my favourite. Andrew is right about the pigs though - they were a joy.

  3. I like the window screens. Um..."the plaque on the plinth" .. seems like some kind of weird science fiction or fantasy story could be made out of that.

  4. Andrew; the pigs are permanent, but other street art comes and goes. It probably wasn't there when you visited.

    EC; I don't like The Slide. I'm not sure why, butI felt uncomfortable looking at it.

    Delores; Do you feel a "plaque on the plinth" story coming on? A poem perhaps? I like the window screens too.

  5. Bonza photos, i especially like the slide it seems a lot of fun indeed :-).

  6. Windsmoke; The Slide is popular, but I personally don't like it.

  7. Ooh I do like that window thing, very artistic. Certainly much nicer than bars.

    The Slide has been there since that part of Rundle St was made into a mall...over 30 years ago (how time flies). I am wracking my brain trying to remember who the artist is but to no avail. It was my favourite piece in the Mall, I hope it's still there. The pigs? Meh.

  9. I really like that window screen :)

  10. I love those window screens! So beautiful!

  11. Oooh, that window screen, I remember seeing it often, but WHERE.....?

  12. Wonderful. I do love the way public art jumps out at you atound corners!

  13. oooh I wonder if it will still be there when I come to Adelaide later on this year. I will email you River and we will make a date to catch up. xx

  14. I like the slide because it is different and I've never seen one like that before.

  15. That last one is odd, and even odder that it has no sign or plaque. Probably stolen, tsk.

  16. betweenthewires; I like the window screens a lot too.

    heptaparaparshinokh; has it really been there that long? I'd never noticed it before. Now of course I'm going to have to have another look when I get to the city next. I love the pigs.

    sleepydwarf; there are three of them all in a row on that side of the building.

    cindi; much nicer than bars.

    Kath; they're on that building on the corner of Grenfell and East terrace.

    linda; I think we need more public art here in Adelaide.

    Kim; do you mean The Slide? We'll wander along Rundle Mall and check.

    Crack You Whip; it makes me uncomfortable, maybe because I don't like the thought of my feet slipping out from under me?

    Cate Pearce; it's in a reserve quite close to me and there's a building right behind it. I'll have a closer look next time I go there.

  17. Wow, the metal art looked great!

    Public art is amazing. I can't explain it, but theres something about the way its just sitting there for all to admire... :')
