Runaway

I am fascinated by these yellow flowers, some clusters appear to have grown in circles. This circle has a runaway!

The leaves resemble those of a dandelion, however the flowers don’t transmute into a powderpuff.

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.
