Franklin St rain

Franklin St in Adelaide is a wide road and attractive in the rain.
The land-mark Post Office tower dominates the streetscape even among the newer larger buildings.

Colours of Autumn - Waymouth St

Autumn has taken hold of Adelaide and it's subtle greys are reflected in the shiney wet pavement of Waymouth St. Umbrella's are hoisted and a man dashes for cover with a makeshift shelter made from his suit jacket.

Under the bridge

I waited for a while to get the right photo of one of the yachts half in shadow and half in light. The relatively new bridge to Hindmarsh Island at Goolwa casts shadows where none had been for thousands of years.

Waymouth Autumn

One might imagine that Waymouth St is the only street in Adelaide that I know, as nearly all the rainy day scenes I have painted are from there. It's not the only good rainy street but it is certainly one of the best. This scene is looking toward the west.  A small porch of one of the businesses reaches out into the street and causes a dry spot in the pavement.

Adelaide Shadows

Long winter shadows envelope Adelaide's city streets during lunch time.
The view is from the top end of Waymouth St and looking toward Pirie St and onwards toward the Adelaide Hills.
