March of progress

This building in Dulwich Hill, Sydney, NSW, is in the process of being demolished to make way for a development of apartments.

I can imagine a corrugated metal bull nosed roof providing shade for the occupants of a balcony that is adorned with iron lace work.You can see how the former roof has protected the paint from the sun’s bleaching rays, marked by shading of the painted surfaces.

I particularly like the blue French doors contrasted against the yellow wall, it reminds me of the heat of a European Summer. It is a shame that the whole building wasn’t painted with the same colours.

More street signs, please?

It takes superhero powers to be able to read all of the road signs, watch for pedestrians, animals, children, cyclists, other motorists…. oh and drive safely in Sydney!

I took this picture on a side road in Dulwich Hill this afternoon.
