Found Alphabet - G
This G is slightly behind schedule - I was having way too much fun on the weekend. Adelaide goes into full-blown festival mode for four weeks starting in mid-February. It's a giant party for that whole time, the biggest festival is the Adelaide Fringe, second only to the Edinburgh Fringe for festivals of its kind. Then there's Adelaide Writers' Week, Adelaide Festival of the Arts (every second year), WOMAD, Future Music Festival, Clipsal 500 and SO many more. After that Adelaide tends to re-disguise itself as a very quiet city. Until next year...
Anyhow, last year I was able to attend a huge number of events and performances, especially as I took advantage of last-minute cheap tickets wherever possible. I'm hoping to do much the same this year, at least for the first couple weeks as I'll likely be moving house after that (3rd time in 18 months. Ew.).
Enough explanation, on with the post! This was one of several Gs that I found this week - I expected to be struggling to find them but was pleased to find quite a few, all within the CBD. This was one of three I found in the same wrought iron fence around the Adelaide GPO. I wasn't expecting this one to be the winner but it was so much clearer and more defined than the others.
There are some more below - another from the GPO, a close-up of the hair on one of the Chinese lions guarding Moonta St. by the Adelaide Central Market and the third is from a very old and well-known fountain in Rundle Mall. The fountain looks like being shunted around in the near future, as will the famous Malls Balls - if I ever do a numbers series to continue this you can COUNT on that being no. 8.
