    This one caught my eye, it has a curtain charm.

    I see no curtains, but I do see somer blinds, Doug,

    I understand what you were after but I feel the framing and cropping is a trifle awkward.It is a conundrum I often find myself diving headlong into.

    A classic for sure, Adelaide has some wonderful architecture, and some non descript rubbish from the 60's and 70's sadly.

    I looked it up on Google street view to see what the building was called and there was a for sale on it. I suspect it is still dormant.

    Found out this about it though:
    Darling House, built in 1916, is significant for its association with the firm John Darling and Son, a very successful milling and wheat exporting business.
    (that would explain the bushel of wheat carved at the top)

    I understand what you were after but I feel the framing and cropping is a trifle awkward.It is a conundrum I often find myself diving headlong into.


    It was the way the building was catching the light that appealed most, the building on the left in shadow gave a counter point to that I felt, but the wall of glass to the right offered little.
    Such are the challenges. It might have something different to say next time I see it.

    If and when I ever get down that way I will make a point of seeking this one out. It is a cracker,

    True.
    Early Sunday morning when the city is having a sleep in is a favorite time for me with the camera.

    She's a quaint ol' thing, that's for sure! I wonder if opening up the scene a tad, both up and left could help the scene?
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    A definite one for a revisit. I've got an ultra wide now (had it at the time though)that I can play with the inclusion of more of the surroundings. The building has enough charm to hold it's own, I think now.
