The view from Spencer

I took these while waiting for the train to Ballarat to arrive at Spencer Street Station, the Sunday before last.

Hey, Merry Almost-Christmas.

Saw your link at Owlies,and thought I'd pop in to spread a little holiday cheer and remind you to spread a little holiday sunscreen. (my lame attempt at humor because Aussie Christmas is in Summer)

It's very unChristmaslike here in Pakistan. Being a former Chicagoan, I'm used to ice, snow and wind up the wazzzo, but here it's a sunny 22C daytime, my sunglasses are still my best friend and my winter clothes are too warm till the sun goes down.

I really respect your work to reach Christian youth. Keep up the good work. It's sorely needed in this day and age.

Hi Carol, thanks heaps once again for your encouragment, and I hope you have a great Christmas in Pakistan as well.
The odds are that on Christmas day we'll get sun, cloud, thunder, lightning, hail, snow and a cyclone. The weather in Melbourne is so unpredictable.

We don't take the train near enough here where I live. The view you show reminds me of a train ride I took while on business in the US - through the older cities in Connecticut. Very similar. Lovely pictures.

Hey they look a bit like scenes from Ghostbusters. I've always liked that old post office building on the corner -- grime has built up on enough that it brins out the contours really well.
Merry Christmas Christop.

Thanks everyone. And happy Christmas to eveyone else who celebrates it in some form. Otherwise, have a Happy New Year! (That shouldn't offend anyone.)
