It’s been a while since I last posted, but health issues have taken over my life again as they did before retirement (due to chronic pain & ill health) in February 2010.
Every time I dive into my archives and/or favourite quote folder, I end up lost for about 3 hours and never able to decide which image(s) to share.
(by the way, getting side-tracked from my original task on any given day is one of my ‘health’ problems. My intermittent Brain Fog and inability to make decisions in the last couple of years annoy me intensely).
Today, instead of nature images, I’ll share a series of images from my ‘architecture’ photo folder for a change.
The apartment buildings down the laneway where I used to live on the north-east side of Melbourne.
The entrance foyer of one of those buildings as seen from the landscaped inner courtyard behind the buildings shown in the previous image)
Taken from the courtyard I used to walk through to get to the cliff path down to the river.
How to make the corridor on my 3rd floor apartment interesting? Too hard I finally decided.
An old heritage-listed building in one of the main streets in Melbourne’s CBD
In a foyer of one of those heritage buildings.
One has to admire the workmanship in this old building foyer.
Another shot of the ceiling lighting.
Some of the beautiful mosaic floor tiles in the foyer of an old building.
A lightwell on the footpath next to an old building. When I was a child and we visited Melbourne city, I used to fantasize about the basements that were lit beneath these old pavement tiles.
Reflections in a first storey office building.
A glass-fronted office building gives some distorted shapes.
I look up to see shoppers reflected in the overhead mirrored roof.
The old GPO (General Post Office) colonnade showing the coffee shops and outdoor diners.
Detail of that ceiling in the previous image.
A black and white conversion
The doors of the heritage-listed 333 Collins Street, Melbourne, building which has been restored.
Just a random entrance decoration.
Inside the foyer of an old apartment/office?? building.
Looking up to see the stairwell
A different view of the same foyer (I think).
Detail of the stair handrail.
A Black and White version of the old Forum Theatre with it’s beautiful roof and the modern office buildings.
Doors to the Heavenly Queen Temple in Footscray (the suburb next to my home location).
