Heritage architecture in Bunbury

The project for Project Flickr this week was "windows and doors".

There are some lovely old homes in Bunbury in what is known as the "tree street" area. So I decided to make a mosaic of some lovely doors and windows and entrances. They have such beautiful styling, detailing and warm welcoming feel.
People probably wondered what I was doing driving around stopping outside of houses and taking photos!

It is a lovely area - not one street, but a collection of streets. There are lots of old style houses - some grand, and others more simply styled, but many beautifully restored. I really like the detail in some of the entrances - with the gates, the arbours, erns, and planters. And see that bay window draped with the lace curtain? beautiful. And for a simple cottage homely feel, I really like the one in the middle of the top row - a terrace house. 


Below is the entrance door of the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries. It is a beautiful building - and the former Sisters of Mercy Convent and Chapel built in 1897 in Federal Free Medieval style, a blend of Gothic and Southern European architectural characteristics.
The building is pink and I really like the decorative plasterwork you can see here above the arch.

 Doors within a door - I can see 4 in the picture (& also my reflection)


I love this building, and I often photograph it from different angles - here are some of its beautiful arches.


And another mosaic of Bunbury architecture - some old and some very new!


Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.

  4. Doors always intrigue me, too. My favorite is the same as yours. Do you think of what you might find beyond the doors? That last building...pink with all the arches. I suppose you could make it a world of photography in and of itself.

  9. Those are gorgeous Jill! That first mosaic .. I'd hang on my wall! I take pictures of peoples' yards all the time, so far I've never been arrested ;>)! (And my pictures never turn out as well as yours -- if anyone complains, just offer to e-mail them a beautiful picture of their front door... !) Thanks for sharing your talent!

  11. I loved your choices for the doors and beautiful porches. I noticed the choice of colours coincide with those of some of you would find on the Caribbean Islands. I loved the architecture too. V
