Big Day Out

The swell is starting to build and with it the power of the waves and the number of cars in the carparks.  Tomorrow morning I reckon I'd have to be up before dawn to get a spot.

More Fence Art


Yet another panel at Coolum with a bit of fishing going on.  Once they are all published perhaps I'll return and do them all again.

Fence Art

Another panel on the walkway at Coolum.   This one almost at the top, the subject is fairly clear!

Uggs and Moccs


Opal World has been under "Old" management for forty years according to the sign on the door, so the demand for ugg boots and moccasins obviously continues unabated.  Perhaps it's the 100,000km or three month guarantee.

You can find them here:

I'm Fan of this Ceiling not a Ceiling Fan



The last time I posted details of these ceiling panels fanning across the roof of the picnic shelter at Coolum, they were relatively new.

I was a little shocked I must admit to see rust creeping into all the screws, and in the stainless steel roof sheeting itself.  Around here, never say forever!

Anything green is my scene.


Sorry, I was there, it was there, I had to take this photo too.

What part of open....


What part of "OPEN" means "if you can get past the padlock on the door".   When temporary signs go bad...

Parroting myself


I am sure a photo very similar to this one has appeared on this blog some time in the past nine years.   The town of Maleny was once adorned with rude (in the rustic sense) wooden sculptures of birds and animals, left in their natural timber state.   This one copped the full paint treatment and is none the worse for it.   There are others around, I should revisit them too I suspect.

Ripple iron with Strelitzia


Perhaps one could be forgiven for thinking I took hours to set up this shot.  Rest assured, I don't have that in me.   I do love "ripple iron", that small profile version of the corrugated stuff that pops up from time to time in walls and window hoods.  I specially like it when it's been patched and painted green.

Curious Snail

 
"The Curious Snail" was a term of affection perhaps for our state newspaper, the "Courier Mail" in the days when one had affection for newspapers.    I'm a bit bemused by the banner proudly proclaiming the "Sydney Morning Herald" is sold at the Maleny Newsagency though, there must be more migrants from south of the border than I thought.

Fern


It's a version of what's called 'fishbone' fern, a pretty one that one often finds in old fernhouses (or just in older house gardens) it probably came from some exotic place originally, via England where it was exported with a load of Parlour Palms in the days when one had a parlour.


There again, it could just be a mutant form of the Australian native one, and the romance of tales of  it's travels will be lost, replaced by another kind of excitement I guess.

Well that makes sense.


Here we have a new estate the size of a small country, yet with apparently room for just a basketball  half-court.  On the other hand, with 200 kilometres of dedicated bikeways to be built, I suppose I can see the need to take up valuable playground space with a bike track.

Fundamentally Flawed.

Note to file: it's fine to use planning buzzwords when you are trying to impress planners, but if the punters don't know what a "veloway" is, perhaps an explanation is necessary on the advertising sign.

Note to whoever thinks that note makes sense:  Wouldn't it just be smarter to call them "bikeways" and end the confusion?

Yellow.

Those bits of yellow?  They're an effort to appease some bloke who sits in an office and comes up with good ideas to make building just  little more expensive.

Sometimes they work, they are temporary downpipes, in place until the real ones get here.   If they aren't connected to anything at the bottom though, well perhaps they serve no purpose other than to add to the colour of the suburb.

Going....


It's a huge development, and there are some nice bits, some very nice bits, and some puzzling ones.  Only time will tell if the very nice bits prevail, or if they've just been added as a cynical marketing exercise until the place gets a bit of sales momentum.

Coming

Aura is a very confusing place.  Statistically it will be a suburb bigger than one of the larger cities in our state, and even more confusing its precincts are divided into what the developers call "suburbs".    

I can't wait to see what the Post Office makes of that.  For the time being, it's part of the Sunshine Coast - don't believe the publicity people!

But it does have some colourful spots.

Walking to Kings.


It's a bit warm, but what a gorgeous day for a stroll around the boardwalk.   

Or lying on the beach.

Or going for a swim.

Plenty of spaces.

On a Sunday afternoon, parking is easy enough to come by in Caloundra.

Eclectic, some might say "messy".


One thing Mooloolaba could never be accused of, is being bland, and this is a view from the rear of the buildings.

Nice.


You can search here for other photos of 77 The Esplanade, ones from the front with the Norfolk pines reflected in the glass.  The rear of the building has no redeeming feature as far as I can tell.

Well there is that little bit of hedge just below the air conditioning unit, but it's got a long way to grow if it's going to improve things.

Signature?


Is this one of my signature shots?  A building leaning into the sky, proudly proclaiming itself to be somewhere else.   Or is that how one would spell "Mooloolaba" were one dyslectic?

Like the artist's rendering.


Deep shadows late in the afternoon could drown First Avenue, but thanks to the modern world of digital photography, we can find the detail and in the process the photograph gives us something that the real scene didn't.

Being in more than one place at the same time.


 At first glance, the arcade seemed crowded.
One man in three places.

Pool Fence


Technically the fence is there to stop children getting into the pool.  The irony of having an entire ocean on the other side of it is apparently lost on those who seek to protect us from the slightest risk.  

It does make a nice place to hang the towel though.

Wet


This month's theme is "wet" and while we had a whole summer where the sort of wet one gets from rain was in very short supply, the pool at Kings Beach was always there to keep anyone that wanted to be wet in a suitable state of just that.

Of course, right now we have an over abundance of the wet stuff, but hopefully the storm will pass and everyone will get back to the pool in a very quick time.

To see more interpretations of this theme visit this link.
