Sunday Selections # 226
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 my theme is:
Friday in Adelaide.
I remembered to charge the battery for my smaller camera and tossed it into my bag on my way out the door.
Here is what I saw on my way across town:
on a block which once held
a single home with a big yard.
autumn leaves gathered in driveways
and along footpaths.
rain clouds gathering
patches of pale blue still visible.
On the other side of town, the newish pedestrian bridge at the Wayville Railway Station. This is right beside the showgrounds, so getting the train to and from the show is much easier now. Before this was built, people caught the train to Keswick Station on the other side of that main road you see in the foreground and the only way across was an underpass which was nothing more than a narrow walkway, unlit and unsafe at night, not much more safe during daylight hours. Or you could dash across between traffic. To cross using lights at pedestrian crossings meant walking quite a long way in the wrong direction.
Another view as traffic began to move.
this shot is blurry as the bus lurched a little as it took off around the corner; it shows the long ramp from the footpath up to the bridge, there is a matching ramp on the other end going down to the opposite footpath leading to the showground gates.
one of Adelaide's older buildings, in Currie Street,
and for Andrew, this one, art deco? also in Currie Street.
