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 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'm taking you back to our Victoria Square to see......
ta-da! the strips hold smaller water spout holes while the larger ones in the middle might be underwater lights. If I'm right about that, they'll come on in the evening. But I didn't stay around that long.
the water spouts appear to be on a computerised routine, with different strips rising and lowering,
or some strips spouting while others rest.
here's a long view, I'm standing on the 'apron' where the food vans were, the fountain is on a lower level. About a half a metre or so.
this is a section of the stepped seating by the fountain. I imagine sitting there and getting sprayed on a hot day would be wonderful.
opposite the fountain are the city flags. The Australian flag on the right...
and the Aboriginal flag on the left. Most of Adelaide was once Aboriginal land. Still is I suppose...nice of them to let us stay.
Here we see Queen Victoria, watching over "her" square.
on the eastern side is another of the seating/shade structures...
with a nice new toilet block.
But what's that box with the question mark?
let's find out.
it wasn't locked.....so of course I opened it.
this is the message inside the lid. And in the box?
a net bag filled with lawn games!! What fun! Quoits, skittles, ring toss etc
this is the structure on the western side that I showed you last week. Just behind that is the road leading north towards the city, behind the road is another grassed area.
where several hundred pigeons gather. This is just a few of them, they all started walking away when they saw the camera.
