Silent Sunday


Parked the car and first thing I saw was this bricked up tunnel painted by John Lawry. The artwork is painted in the Trompe l’Oeil style, which is French for ‘deceive the eye’. By using perspective, the mural creates an illusion of depth and dimension.

This tunnel was built in1861 and was made to link the railway line at Brighton Beach Station with the pier on the opposite side.

In front of the mural is this round tiled stylized representation of a STAR mosaic and all around the walk way were tiled kid-like drawings.

This is the Brighton War Memorial. The War Memorial commemorates those who served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

It was serene but happy to find this dog sniffing along by himself and the owner not far behind.

I am linking this to FOTD Challenge. I don’t really know what it is but looks kinda weird and interesting at the same time.

It was a gloomy day but is looking very peaceful.
