I found out the other day, that little laneways used to be called snickets!
While this is a verandah at the back of our shopping centre, the lighting made me think of snickets.

The god in this case being commerce, and the machine the retail stores.
But which one runs the other?
I really shouldn’t have done that with the title, but the temptation was too much. As Oscar Wilde said, “The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.”
Off Rundle Mall, still more building refurbishment. I wonder when (if) they’ll ever stop?
What was this shop? When did it start? Was it prosperous, and worthy of refurbishment, or did it fail and another proprietor decide on a new look for his, or her, new venture. I don’t know, but Eugene Atget would have made a better picture of that than I can.

Interesting – the word “scaffold”. According to the Oxford Dictionary, a scaffold can be used to decorate a building.
I don’t think that’s what this is for.
A little shop in the Renaissance Arcade in Adelaide. It has the most wonderful collection (for sale!) of old cameras and camera equipment. It’s a veritable Aladdin’s Cave, and some of the items must be nearing museum quality.
