      Oh how a splash can brighten even the dullest corner, was so much fun, these streets were my student day haunts and a lot less colorful 25 years ago!!! 💚☘️

        Oh it’s still very much a student area, lots of the buildings are actually flats, no one can really afford to have entire house like these any more, well, not everyone

    Especially love the big yellow doors – the ‘triangle’ door (so different) and the massive yellow doors under the arch. You found yet another cabbage tree (!) and I love the last photo with a bird in the rainbow 🙂 Lots of lovely colour!

      It’s was such a splendid afternoon, unexpected, which made it all the better. I love just wandering, taking quieter paths and seeing what comes along- and it’s always exciting. Got to showcase the cabbage trees for you ☘️💚

    I don’t know the context of the “Don’t Be Afraid” giant mural, Damien, but I think that it is a message that we all need to hear repeatedly. I love all of the colorful doors and the rainbow image is really special–nice timing to include the bird where you did. 🙂

      Thanks Mike, totally agree- don’t be afraid- can never be said enough. Every time I see a bird and try to capture him I think of your stunning shots and usually turn away and take a photo of a colored concrete which can’t move 🙃😂 animals don’t pose for me!

        It helps that I have a long telephoto lens, Damien. I, on the other hand, marvel at your ability to capture the landscape, both natural and manmade. I had a little taste of that style of photography in Paris and enjoyed it, but I think that I am drawn more to the solitary pursuit of my wildlife photos. Both of us follow our hearts in different ways and try to share with others our unique perspectives. We are so alike and yet so different.
