Block Arcade in colour

I posted a photo of Block Arcade in black and white earlier. Here are a few in colour.

Lots to look at from the floor to the ceiling…

The design of the ceiling is different here. I see something delightful on the right…

A window display at Hopetoun Tea Rooms, which started in  the early 1900s. A special place for a treat – I have only been inside once a while ago. Maybe it’s time for a next visit :)

Evelyn! These are great! Thanks for posting in color, too. I really loved the B&W, but I like the creamy colored walls and all the signs, too :-D

And those cakes? They're making my stomach growl...

Lovely arcade.
Very Victorian. ;)

Dear Evelyn,
Thank you for lovely photos. The earlier photo makes a good contrast to these photos. BTY, they remind me of QVB here in Sydney.
Cheers, Sadami

Hi Sadami
I love the QVB building - it's a beautiful building. Ahh, it feels like ages since I was in Sydney. I'd love to visit again. :)

That centre has got a beautiful ceiling! The rolls was baked by me, and yes they got quite soft, instead of milk I took beer (without alcohol) in it. The cat was painted by me, it's not my cat, it's taken from a cat book I have.. :) You are one of the persons that made me feel that I wanted to start to try to draw again....! :)) "So here I am.." ;)

Oh so many tempting cakes they have in the tearoom, they are so delicate! :)
