Sunday Selections #49

The Blurb

I take a lot of photos and most of them are just sitting around in folders on my desktop not doing anything. I thought that a dedicated post once a week would be a good way to share some of these photos that otherwise wouldn’t be seen by anyone other than me.

I am also remarkably absent minded and I put photos into folders and think that I will publish them later on and then then I never do.

So I have started a photo meme that anyone can join in and play as well. The rules are so simple as to be virtually non existent.

Just add your name and URL to the Mr Linky.

Publish your photos on your blog using the “Sunday Selections” title.

The Photos

Most of  these photos were taken on a trip to Melbourne last November.

I adore Melbourne.

    I love the man and the statue, seems like they are reflections of each other.

    • frogpondsrock December 11, 2011, 10:32 am

      They reminded me of a scene in a cowboy movie 🙂

    Love the piano player. Also love the shapes and patterns in the last three. But, excuse my ignorance – what are they?

    • frogpondsrock December 11, 2011, 10:32 am

      I took this from the window of the plane as we were flying out of Melbourne. I am not sure of the name of the bay.

    The first is really cool and I love the last three. I’ll post my selection tomorrow when it is actually Sunday for me.

    • frogpondsrock December 11, 2011, 10:33 am

      I look forward to seeing them Megan 🙂

    Great photos! I especially like the first one’ and the last few look like reflections in wavy glass!

    • frogpondsrock December 12, 2011, 5:44 am

      They do, don’t they. I thought they might work as patterns on a section of a plate. I was quite taken with the geometric lines contained within a curve.

    The piano busker made me smile, but I really love metal man.
    The last three look like planning grids on a map.

    • frogpondsrock December 12, 2011, 5:48 am

      I have forgotten the name of the artist who did those sculptures in the NGV and that is really annoying me.

  • Surely Sarah December 11, 2011, 3:39 pm

    You have a great eye for photography – I am particularly enamored of that first one. What a great juxtoposition!

    • frogpondsrock December 12, 2011, 5:50 am

      Thankyou Sarah, I just photograph the things that I like. The first photo was taken from the first floor of the national gallery of Victoria, looking down towards the water window. I have quite a few photos as I love the sculptures. This photo reminded me of a scene from a B -grade cowboy film.

    What is not to love about Melbourne 😉

    • frogpondsrock December 12, 2011, 5:52 am

      Exactly. I am saving for a trip to Adelaide in Sept/Oct so I don’t see any Melbourne trips in my immediate future 🙁

  • carolina December 11, 2011, 7:21 pm

    The first three shots are my favourites. Love the eclectic atmosphere and the guy in the window with the statue. Well spotted!
    I have a zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzleepy selection for this Sunday 😉

    • frogpondsrock December 12, 2011, 5:53 am

      Oh Caroline I loved your photos this week. they are wonderful.

  • Maid In Australia December 11, 2011, 8:02 pm

    I love them all, but particularly the piano man!

    • frogpondsrock December 12, 2011, 5:53 am

      He seems to me to embody the spirit of Melbourne.

  • amandab December 18, 2011, 1:04 pm

    I do like the first one, and totally see what you mean about making you think of a Western.

    I can’t say that I have ever seen the piano man, do you remember where he was? Must ask hubs and ask if he knows.

    But you know, recently I got a saxophone endorsement, and one of the first things I asked them was to give me an alto.
