Out With The Old ......


~   Rundle Mall  ~

It has just been announced that our main shopping mall
 is about to recieve a major upgrade to the sum of $30m
It will be out with the old and in with the new ... uncluttered is the aim.

Iconic landmarks like the malls balls and bronze pigs
are geting the flick!!  




Stalls in the centre promenade are being replaced by
pop up waggons selling their wares.
As you can imagine some people aren't happy.

I'm sitting on the fence .... it's going to happen .. the bulldozers are fired and ready to go.



No more splish splash!

Nooooooo! Not the Mall's Balls!
I kinda got used to the pigs too ;-)

Great shots Dianne - wonderful reflections in the balls and love the fountain edge capture.

Andrew said...

Oh no. Not the pigs!

it has been many years since I walked that mall. Will it lose a certain charm from yesteryear? I quite like the photos you've shared and love those big reflective balls; they're fabulous!

Too bad as what you have shown so far, are quite attractive to the street scene of this area.

It looks quite vital in these shots, but you can't let things age in place. Today you show us "before" . . . later you can show us the "after" and we can see how the mall operator performed.

Perhaps they'll keep balls and pigs...

OH NO! One of my favourite malls. I love the pigs and the fountain. I hope they will be installed elsewhere.

Oh no not the meatballs Dianne, they are perfect for reflection shots, double reflection shots at that!! I know exactly what you mean though, the same is happening here in Perth, so many HUGE things happening! As you say they will happen anyway, we'll just have to wait and see.

I'd read there was going to be an upgrade, but hadn't heard the balls, pigs and fountain were going to be got rid of. This is terrible news!! I hope they rethink this and leave them. The Mall will be dead without them, they're tourist attractions, everybody loves them. Well, everybody I know loves them.
