Accidentally on Purpose.

I've looked and inspected and short of getting a ladder I can't make up my mind if the colour change is deliberate or whether it's an accident of the painter's art.   How I would like to believe that it was a new tin of paint and they worked their way down one panel on a swinging stage.

Where's Willys?




Life can't be easy when you are the only one that isn't a Kombi.

The Cusp


We are on the very cusp of the high season.   In a few weeks time there will be lot's of neon "NO" signs lit all over town.

The Christmas holidays are coming. Ho ho ho!

View from the West


These buildings have almost no openings on this elevation because it faces west.   That means that arguably they miss out on some lovely views of the hinterland, but also on some incredible heat loads every afternoon.

Sadly from a climatic response perspective, the views and balconies are on the southern side, where the prevailing winds are such that balconies remain unused on many occasions, and wind blown salt spray can be bothersome!

Streetscape


I'm not trying to tell any stories here, simply recording the streetscape as it is in 2014.  

Perhaps it's the sort of view that would make an interesting meme.

Contours


I've been mucking around trying to find a way of expressing the contours of the streets in Caloundra.  Today I discovered that the sky was doing its best to assist.

Lamkin Lane


The books all say that one must make photographs in the first and last hours of the day.   How then does one illustrate the shelter that we seek from the midday sun?

How can we describe the heat that jolts as we walk from the shade to the sunlight to cross the road for instance.  It's like jumping into an icy bath, in reverse!

Urban Vista


I don't know whether the future of the fig trees in Bulcock Street has yet been assured, I hope it has.  They provide a depth of shade and protection from glare that has to be experienced to be believed.

They are quite difficult to photograph satisfactorily though.  I shall keep trying.
