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.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have another random selection.
the flowers are a delicate pinky purple. I don't see any resemblance to oysters or bear claws, do you?
This is one of our double decker buses, I think we have two or three, this is the J1X, as you can see it is an express to the Airport bus, coming into the city from the hills suburbs several times a day with limited pick-up and set-down stops.
one section of the bus decoration, this is the Australian Aboriginal Dot Painting style.
the back end of the bus. There is another bus with a similar decoration done in shades of green and grey. Every painting tells a story, or has some other meaning, but I don't know the stories.
The bottle brush tree beside my suburban bus stop. Most people stand well back from this as it is usually buzzing with hundreds of bees.
look at this beautiful colour,
with every red spike having a golden tip.
Back in the city, here's a view down the alley opposite the stop I wait at when on my way to visit K. The car you see one that building is in a roof top carpark.
sometimes I like this glass roof, other times I think how hard it would be to keep clean.
these next few photos are reflections in the windows around me as I waited for my bus.
this image is a reflection of the actual building across the street. I was standing right under the window here.
Here's that building with its own reflections of the buildings on my side of the street. And a small piece of the dot painted bus.
How often do you notice the reflections in windows?
more buildings within buildings, almost like framed photos.
this one is reflection overshadowed by the lights inside the building.
Finally, a sight I wish I never had to see,
a gum-spotted footpath. People who spit out their chewing gum should be made to clean these areas, but first you'd have to catch them at it I suppose. Did you know there is a hefty fine in China for spitting gum onto the streets and footpaths? I wonder how they police that and couldn't we copy it here?
