MtLawleyShire goes to the city

I met a dear friend for lunch in the city – a rare outing for me.  At the moment, the Perth Festival is on so there were many more people and activities going on around me.  This massive moreton bay fig near the art gallery was sublimely unfazed by all the activity around it:


and the graceful architecture of a bygone age, the lovely eucalypt near it were likewise untouched:

It was a little breezy for flowers in the city orchard, but I was able to get a few:

the view from the walkway to the railway station is somewhat unappealing:


and then, from the elevated walkway above Forest Place, a glimpse of the Diver, sleeping – one of the Giants, marionettes that visited Perth and walked the streets for three days to open the Perth Festival.

a wee rabbit in a shop window display – it just looked so wistful


delicate foliage and graceful architecture:

straight and soaring:


detail of shopfront decorations – reflections of plane trees in the mall are glimpses in this:


blocky architecture:

and the old Trades Hall on Beaufort Street – more old architecture.  I’m not sure which I prefer, the black and white or the green – which it is & it looks charming:

Other things – a blue dragonfly in the city wetland:


a very strange character – really quite large – near the Art Gallery.  It looks like a big pink faceless bunny:


and this – larger than anything else (except for buildings) – in the museum: a claw about to descend ‘pon my head!  😀


It’s OK – I’m still here 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my little wander around the CBD of Perth (well, a section of it).  🙂

    What does the clawed paw at the museum belong to? Or is it not attached to a full skeleton?
