Waiting For A Bus.......


The Supreme Court of South Australia
with the normal flurry of trams buses and cars

What more can a person do while waiting for a bus in the city
but snap a few everyday scenes
nothing spectacular
just random shots from the bus bench!




Pilgrim Uniting Church
sitting pretty at the corner of the square



The Angas building dwarfted by its neighbour




 St Francis Xavier Cathedral
soaking up the late afternoon sun

Wonderful late afternoon captures, Dianne. Especially like the shot of the Pilgrim Church, standing defiantly among the towering buildings - refusing to be intimidated by progress!

A fine series of views - telling it like it is.

That kind of late afternoon sun is the best and makes for gorgeous pictures!

I love the late afternoon light on the cathedral and the great reflection on the Angas building.
Lovely images.

I love the Adelaide trams. The afternoon sun warms the church beautifully.

I especially like the light on the cathedral.

I forgot to mention that St Francis has just recently undergone an exterior clean and it's looking quite beautiful.

Beautiful photo's and I also love the view of the cathedral.

When I think of your country I see a small island in the ocean and never even imagine New Zealand being there and I have always thought of it being a small island too. But a friend of mine crossed Australia on foot about 25 years ago and he assured me it is a huge land mass and in places it looks like any big city in America.

Your photos are a delight to see and I assume your camera would be a delight to hold.

Nice - there's beauty in the ordinary, especially when you get that late-day golden glow.

Jack said...

Dianne, you nailed the image of St. Francis! They call the late afternoon the "golden hour," and today you present Exhibit A!

Dianne....Your picture of the cathedral with all of that beautiful natural light is gorgeous. I am so glad you put your wait time to good use by snapping photos. They are wonderful. And the yellow bus....I love it. It actually looks a bit space age in the photo. Great post. genie

Agree that cathedral light is special.

I particularly like your Pilgrim Church photo. The small tree in sunlight and the blue bench, lifts the deeply shaded section, with its contrast to the warm sunlight above.
