Shiny and new - Thematic Photographic 249

Carmi's theme for us this week is Shiny and New.
The first thing I thought of was a mall - more particularly, the GPO mall in central Melbourne. The old building has been made super-shiny, and given a new look to suit all of its fashionable boutiques and cafés.

I walked through early one morning, before the stores were open:

Speaking of shining...

Curvaceous , this week's theme over at Written.Inc, could describe some more of my Australian holidayshots.

These were all taken at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne:

Finally, some more curvy-necked swans:

On the Water... TP 247

Thematic Photographic 247 !!  I've missed a few, I think.

On the water - my favourite place.

Last term holidays I was in Melbourne, one of my favourite cities.

The Yarra River runs through the central city

It was autumn, hence the grey skies. Not too cold though. 
I never seem to have much luck at St Kilda, the famous beachside suburb - for me, the skies are always grey and lowering:

Sunday Snapshots

Some more photos from my trip to Australia in April. 

Seacliff, in Adelaide. Late afternoon.

People were out walking, fishing from the pier... this spot is 
very popular, and crowded in the summer
