Mechanical Repairs

A repair shop that looks the way a repair shop should look.

On a clear day, you can see further than this


This photograph does smack of "but it was better than this in real life", but I wanted to show one more time just how little development exists in our city really.   It's a very narrow strip with a few minor incursions beyond the security of the ocean's grasp.

A Test


A small snippet of a small but lovely shiny thing in a park in Buderim.  I have no more detail.  Can someone fill in the gap in information?

Neat.


When Brooke decided to open a barber shop) for blokes, next to her well established ladies' salon the change in corporate identity could have been a big problem.

Is there nothing a bit of black texta can't fix?

Green curves


This "busy-ness" design thing is not all that easy to pull off successfully.  Sometimes the result looks as though it's just a bunch of elements pulled from a hat and stuck together.

Is this one of those times?

The angle of the dangle


I had this theory about the "whitening" of the coast moving towards a new vernacular, which obviously is not shared by the folk at Mal Pratt developments!

Well perhaps it will fade.

Tiki Weirdness


The Kon Tiki buildings in Maroochydore are brand new and have some quite nice things going for them.

The bleeding tiki centrepiece dripping green bile is not my favourite thing in the world though.

Yawning over awnings


No yawning really, just a bit of solid shade in the form of a super-hero lightning crack!

My favourite kind of shadow.


I've actually got lots of favourite kinds of shadow, but as pretty much everyone knows, when the patterned glass meets the sun, and the sun meets the structure below it, nice things can result.

Twenty-Eight.


Did they find a plant to match the colour of their trim, or order the trim colour to match the plant?

A bit of colour in all our lives.

Green Gnome


I wonder what he's so jealous of?
Surely not my old camera?

The view opposite


The view from the houses in yesterday's photo, of the trees bracing themselves against attack.   Perhaps it's a nature reserve.   

It looks like one.

The sales guy probably thinks it is.

I hope so.

Are they afraid?


I wonder if, just as the occupants of the houses look out and marvel at the trees opposite, the trees look out at the houses and ponder their fate.

Maroochy Boardwalk




A boardwalk is a boardwalk is a boardwalk.  This one, a few hundred metres from, or close enough perhaps to be called part of the new Maroochy Town Centre.

It doesn't strike me as being an unpleasant place to live.

Night Beach


Yes it is inviting, but please don't swim here after dark.   The sharks might find you appetising, and if you were to get into trouble, no one else could find you at all.

Seagulls by Night


They are no less greedy under floodlight, as they wait for a morsel from the crowd.

I told you it's the light!


Of course we could sit at a table under the shelter, and old habits die hard, but really we won't get too badly damaged sitting under the rays of the overhead halogen or are they tungsten lights?

It's the light

One of our favourite things is to sit in the early evening with a warm Pizza on the wall above the floodlit beach, basking in the glow while congratulating ourselves on how lucky we are to be alive right now.

After Sunset



Notice how I've cleverly oh so slightly underexposed this shot for that "after sunset" look?   Actually by the time I'd found that I'd posted this version of the view from the Loo with a View, it was too late to change it!

Civic Pride.


I don't understand why a town like Maleny allows it's rubbish bins to be littered with outdated concert posters, or for that matter current ones together with lots of marks where they've been. 

Every bin in town has flyers and posters for events that have been (never ones that are to come strangely enough) ranging from car boot sales to concerts.  To be fair to this one, it was barely a month after the event when I took this photo.  

See how the previous effort had thoughtfully used blue tack to avoid damaging the paint?   What a pity they didn't take the rotten stuff with them as well!

Perhaps I need a rest!

Now ain't that nice.


I've worked in offices that produced buildings like this, so I know the enormous sense of fulfilment one gets from satisfying a client's brief.   I also know the enormous despondency of going past the rotten things for fifty years waiting for them to be bowled over, but they never are.   Heaven forbid, in time they may even be deemed to be of historical significance and preserved in perpetuity.

The telephone exchange was once an "exchange" where operators connected callers to callees.  As automation came along, equipment continued to diminish in size in a never ending spiral sadly destined to ensure that the growth of the system can be contained within the old building forever.

We can't even burn the things down.

Speaking of reflections.


Here's the cafe across the street viewed through the eyes of a couple of wooden pelicans.

How does one milk an almond?


It doesn't matter, because this photo is a curiosity.   Did you know that if you tape a sign in your shop window that says "Almond Milk Now Available" just in front of your polished stainless steel coffee machine, at precisely the time of day when sufficient light is shining through the sign for the reflection to pick up the words, that the reflection will mimic the sign and not be reversed?

It's logical of course, but it plays with one's brain for a bit in real life.

Through faded glasses


The bright new signs are showing signs of fading even after the first year, so I thought I'd help them on their way a bit.   That's much better, perhaps I am wrong.  Perhaps in a year or ten the town will have softened back to its old self!

Concerns


I have expressed my concerns before at the loss of the traditional street facades in Maleny.  They have almost entirely given way now to the bright modern clutter that some how works to hide the identity of the place.   This is not to say they are bad, they have a certain consistency, but they are not the outcome  loudly espoused by those who espoused outcomes in days gone by.

Copy, right?


One has to arrive before the cafe opens if one wants to gain a proper appreciation of the seating arrangements.  

Guests at the home of the writer may be surprised to find some little stools baring a striking but entirely co-incidental resemblance to these scattered about in the not too distant future.

Let's Eat!




The Tinker is a very cool "travelling events" van, lovingly restored by it's owners to period-perfect (or perhaps perfect in our imagination) standard.

It's for hire for functions and special events, and it's my contribution to today's theme "Let's Eat".

For more City Daily Photo bloggers' interpretations of this month's theme, please visit this link.

You can find out more about the van here.
