October Squares | Day Twenty-Nine

This month Becky (the Queen of Squares) has challenged us to find lines. In Squares naturally. That is the only proper ‘rule’. I have been dipping into the archives for this one, as well as finding local lines.

We are nearing the end now so if you want to join in then you still have two more days! Post one image or several, but remember that it must be a square.

October Squares | Day 29

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Such a beautiful Victorian building Pete and so very nearly lost! From 1959 to 1971, the QVB faced near-demolition. Thankfully it has been properly restored and is absolutely glorious.

  1. Ah! QVB. Last time I was there it was near Xmas and I got quite carried away taking photos of the tree. I should have looked down!

      1. Isn’t it. There were quite a few grand buildings in NZ and Aus built around the same time and with that wonderful attention to both macro-design and detail. Not many left now so those that remain are to be treasured.

    1. I would love to do that tour, it really is a very interesting building. Not sure when or even if I will visit Sydney again though.

  3. Great shot! It’s interesting how the lines have rearranged themselves into almost every geometric pattern I can imagine.

    1. It’s a beauty! I love the Victorian tiled floors and have always wanted a house with a hallway with the encaustic geometric tiling.
