Reasons To Be Cheerful


Isn't it fortuitous that the Ray White corporate colour scheme works so well with this Woodlark St Lismore classic; white, black and egg yolk yellow was a favourite combination for early 20th Century trendsetters. The grand late-Victorian banking chambers to the left is also nicely painted as well.
I am also impressed how the Lismore City Council has embraced the austerity of our times with their minimalist Christmas decoration attached to the telegraph pole.

  5. I like the cheerful color combo, maybe because I'm old, although not quite as old as the BEGINNING of the 20th Century!

    We are minimalists with our Christmas decorations at our house this year!

  6. Good shot, Mark. We are lucky to have some wonderful old buildings that have been suitably renovated here in Oz.
    Ditto about Christmas decorations at our place this year. Simple and frugal!

  15. The architecture is lovely and the paint jobs so pretty. I like them, too. The yellow stripes are especially nice. Spotted the festive bell at the left end of the shot. genie
