GPO, Adelaide





This is the clock tower of the General Post Office, Adelaide, on Victoria Square, photographed in February, 2008. This building dates from the mid-19th century and when it was new it was one of the taller structures in the city, along with the Town Hall and the cathedral. This was 8.35 on a hot Sunday morning in summer and the brilliant sunshine brings out the richness of colour between the sky, the trees lining King William St and the cleaned stonework of the tower. Sharpened and colour-and contrast-balanced. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic, telephoto. Image by Mike.
