5 in 5 - Melanie - June 2017




Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia and she loves photography.  Every month since the start of this challenge Melanie has taken part in this monthly meme and as she doesn't have her own blog I post here. I love that we have found a way for her to take part, so over to you Melanie:


"Having been disappointed that the pelicans in my chosen spot for a 5 in 5 last month were nowhere to be seen I decided to have something more static for this month.  I went into the city of Adelaide with the intention of using roof tops for a theme and here are the five that have made it into my June arrangement.  I walked down North Terrace to the Adelaide Art Gallery and most of the photos were taken from the lawn at the back of the gallery.  The middle photo though was taken while I was on North Terrace and is of the clock tower on the NE corner of the Myer Centre Building.  The four surrounding photos were taken from the lawn as I stood in one spot looking around me.  Next to the art gallery is the main campus of Adelaide University.  The top Left hand picture is of the steeple on the front of The Mitchell Building on North Terrace.  The Mitchell building was the first building to be erected for the University of Adelaide being built between 1879 and 1881.  It is known for being an example of the Gothic Revival from the second half of the nineteenth century.  It is now occupied by the administration areas of the University.  The bottom right hand photo is on another University building roof top.  This building is called Elder Hall also on North Terrace.  It is a concert and performance venue and is part of the Elder Conservatorium.  The Elder Conservatorium is the oldest tertiary music school in Australia.  The hall was built in 1900.The other two photos are of accommodation.  The bottom Left hand photo is of flats on top of a Wilson car park at 198 North Terrace.  The top right hand photo is of East West Student accommodation on North Terrace".








I like Melanie's theme for this months’ photos. It’s good sometimes just to stand in one place and look around.  Roof tops can be fascinating and these photos include an interesting collection of styles and age.  It’s nice to learn a little about them too, thank you, Melanie.
