took these today

this is the eventual site of 'The Link' project which is beyond the planning stages and is about to get its first proposals


this is on the East Parade bridge which goes over the top of the Farmer Freeway, unfortunately there is no pedestrian footpath on the other side, so i had to take the photo through the traffic.

Perth has good weather but it can be wet and cold I believe the wet yes. Its winter here in Australia so its not as cold as say Adelaide or Melbourne but I imagine its cool.

From Melboy Pete's post, we can see that whilst in Perth, he....



...was too lazy to hunt awesome coffee & probably rates shitty Starbucks over Epic Espresso.

...couldn't afford to eat in decent restaurants.

...slept with, and fell in love with fat chicks who, realising their mistake, promptly dumped him and now he's bitter towards all of them.

...worked a shit job and/or went on weekly trips to Centrelink

...can't accept foreigners & multiculturalism & the benefits they bring, preferring to support a whites-only policy. (Unless you're Abo buddy, you have the foreigners to thank for you living in Australia).

...got aggro after two midis of VB and got thrown out of decent clubs, or maybe he never got into them thanks to his tragic bogan dress sense. "Sorry mate, no Ugg boots, trackie-daks or Big-Dub flannel workshirts".

...has such a small brain he can only think of shopping as a way of entertaining himself & therefore couldn't do shit in Perth outside of shopping hours.

...and doesn't rate the appeal of a slightly different view of how to do things here which is what gives Perth its charm, friendliness and unique character.

Perth's better off without you. **** off, enjoy Melbourne and its shit weather.

Folks, I'm thinking the vast majority of photos being placed in this thread are by SSC members, so I am moving this to Urban Showcase for self taken photos. Thank you!
