Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have photos that I took last Sunday while waiting for my movie to begin.
As we all know it was Easter Sunday, so the buses were running on public holiday time, (which is exactly the same as weekend time), so I arrived at the cinema with just under an hour to spare. A later bus would have got me there after the program had started and after sitting through 20 minutes of advertising and promos I started to think maybe that wouldn't have been such a bad idea. But then I wouldn't have spent time wandering around with my camera!
The cinema I go to is in a little shopping centre called Mitcham Village.
Here we go>>
the clock tower, but what are those white specks on the corner up near the top?
Two sulphur crested cockatoos. I love these cheeky birds.
they are very destructive birds, however, you can see here the damage they have done chewing at the wooden edging there.
across the road I spotted this well maintained old building that looks as if it was once a school.
it is now the Mitcham Community Centre,
with a Toy Library. I think toy libraries are a great idea, you borrow toys that are new to your children, to keep them interested and playing, then take them back and swap them after a few weeks. This saves quite a lot of money, I believe there is a small fee, but much cheaper than paying to buy a toy that your child may not like.
on the way back to the cinema I saw this Mega-Copter, it's the topmost part of the climbing frame in the play yard of the local Hungry Jack's Burger place.
In between the Community Centre and returning to the cinema, I spent quite a lot of time in another area which I will show to you next week.
this wall at the back of the Council Offices intrigued me, it looks like it is made of rusted metal panels, a closer inspection showed it isn't, a different construction material is used, the rusted metal look is from the paint used and it's very effective.
I was pleased to see the wall continued through to the front of the building.
the logo on the building.
I thought this cow was a great way to advertise the Butcher's business.
creeper cover on a fence post, looks like Virginia Creeper or Boston Ivy, the leaves are the shape of grape vine.
The green glass windows are the topmost part of the Wallis Cinema which is situated above the main shopping mall.
the curved window of the cinema entrance area above the cafe, is a lovely suncatcher, warm on a cold day.
Along the side, in the windows above, we can see the seating area where patrons can wait while their theatre is readied for the next showing of their chosen movie.
The cinema houses seven separate theatres, all are clean and very comfortable with seats a little wider than I'm used to, so there's no feeling of being cramped.
