The Garage

The challenge from the RA PhotoClub this weekend was to wander around Lansdowne Park and the Glebe with only a cellphone for a camera. I am no cellphone expert so it was a real challenge!

One of the leaders gave a tip that the parking garage in the Glebe had some interesting features so off I went to check it out. The garage was built after I moved away from the area so it was completely new to me. I did not expect the architectural details and the whimsical turtles so the shoot was a wonderful time and mercifully out of the cold wind. A bonus was that with the pandemic there were very few cars parked.

Interesting idea of photographing a garage, never occurred to me but now looking at your photos I can see why it would be worthwhile. Interesting "peep wholes" but I think the most interesting one is the one in #5, your composition really makes the holes stand out. Wondering why there are frogs & turtle designs on the walls.

The city commissioned Christopher Griffin to create the turtles and frogs.  There are also some creatures on the roof but there is construction on that level so I could not get close.  The most interesting garage I have ever seen.

I do🤪. Much prefer a real camera but I cannot deny the quality that cellphones can now produce.

I do too, but, as you say, the phones are producing pretty competitive produce!+1
