Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Arches, Domes & Half Circles


I love old ornate buildings from previous centuries. Today’s buildings mostly lack the grace and beauty of the past. There is nothing grand about dark glass and slabs of concrete thrown together to make a skyscraper. I love arches, domes, beautiful brickwork ,tiled flooring, stained glass and big impressive doorways. Before I end up getting into a rant about how ugly today’s architecture is here are my photos for this weeks Fun Foto Challenge.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see

  1. I like the Chimes Singapore architecture, and the inside of the Clifford Pier building looks fantastic but the other photos are awesome too. But I wonder, what you can do in the Clifford Pier building? Is this a public building where people can hang around?

    1. This now is something to do with a posh hotel and I think there is a fancy restaurant in there. There was a posh doorman in a uniform and he was kind enough to let me take the photo. I didn’t ask if I could wander about but it was probably only for hotel patrons and people booked to eat there. I’ll see if I can find the link for it again later. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate them very much.
