Burnside Village

On my other blog – Adelaide Times – I mentioned the Burnside Village Shopping Centre. Here’s a few HDR pix I took today.
I’ve included a pic of the scale bugs on the tree outside. I thought they were interesting.

I’ve decided to start a gallery of my attempts at “arty stuff”. I firmly believe that modern digital photography and its associated programs like Photoshop etc. are a natural progression from other media, such as watercolours, oils, etc.
Please be patient as it will take some time to get a proper representation uploaded!

Just some of the historic buildings in Glenelg. The Wallis Cinema – a prime example of the Art Deco Period – has since been demolished to make room for a car park.

Street Life

Not only is there a danger of losing our architectural history; there is also the danger of losing some freedoms we now cherish. As Thomas Jefferson said, “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
