Gondolas In The Sky...............



~ Ferris Wheel  On The Glenelg Promenade ~

Up Up and away ..... these pretty babushka style gondolas will take you on an
 8 minute spin for A$6-  with spekky views over both the city and the sea
not that I've actually taken the ride but I can imagine
 it would be well worth the money.

I love the colour they bring to the area especially at night
when the wheel can be seen for miles around

Be sure to bring the camera when you do go for a ride.

I have a dreadful fear of heights Dianne, but somehow these very pretty gondolas look like they just might be doable!! Love the decoration and colours.

Wow...impressive and colorful images.

My Wednesday post: FROM A DISTANCE Hope you can find time to drop by to visit with me.

Ah, so you have a biggish wheel while Melbourne's has failed, big time.

Jim said...

Such pretty looking gondolas

Jack said...

The gondolas (or gonoli? gondolae?) are so bright and colorful! They remind me of Jules Verne and Around the World in 80 Days for some reason.

Much more fun looking than the average gondola ride. You could imagine you were in a balloon.

Valerie said...

Lovely, colourful captures Dianne. I agree with Jack about the connection with "Around the World in 80 days" - just goes to show that sometimes marketing images do remain with us!

Jessica said...

Such bright and happy photos :) thanks for sharing!

These ones look quite special Dianne. Great colours, style and contrasts you have captured here.

Joe said...

Very colourful. The Gondolas look a bit like large painted lightbulbs.

Liz said...

Great shots! The Gondolas are so colorful. Happy sky watching.
