Phoneography challenge - Week 5 Challenger's choice - street photography

Historic arcade, Brisbane Australia:

A heritage listed arcade with up market shops, built in  1924, that even has its own bomb shelter, in the basement, no longer used as such. This was the subject for my challenger’s choice photograph for this week’s challenge. To join in with your phone’s best photos, see below:

Since the deaths of owner, James Mayne in 1939, and Mary Mayne in 1940, Brisbane Arcade has been operated by a board of trustees acting on behalf of their estates, with operating proceeds benefiting the University of Queensland School of Medicine, (according to Wikipedia).

LensandPensbySally runs a regular phoneography challenge, every Monday, for photos taken with your smart phone, as your lens. Each week there is a different focus:

1st Monday: Nature

2nd Monday: Macro

3rd Monday: Black and White

4th and 5th Mondays: Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel).


“Life, we learn too late, is in the living ,  in the tissue of every day and hour.” Stephen Leacock.

A quote to ponder about today.



About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  1. Great shot, especially because you took the long view. Clarity is really good. Happy Phoneography Monday.


    • Thanks so much, Sally. I appreciate your words. Unfortunately, this phone met with an accident with salt water at the beach, shortly after I took this shot. I don’t think the new phone is as good…..:(

    Your angle is perfect! I love all the angles and lines, all softened with the warm colors of the place. I’m so sorry to hear about your phone’s demise!


  6. Lovely. I like the repetition of lines, angles and signs. Happy 2014.
