Royal gala, to be precise. And they’re perspectives for Becky’s squares.
Cee’s challenge this week is dance it out and she had so many great examples, here.
On recent trips to the beach I have seen these seals and wondered what they were doing.
And then I saw them from above, while on the jetty.
And just in case it’s a matter of perspective, watch this and decide. (But I couldn’t make it square)

Sometimes squaring a shot is difficult, but I hope I’ve managed to capture the landscape, then the parts, of my view from the Birkenhead Bridge.
Always some perspective to please. For more perspectives, see Becky’s squares, here.
Since 2015 there have been a few Wonderwall Festivals held in Port Adelaide. I have seen them for many years as I enter the Port region and considered them purely as artwork.
Currently, they provide an interesting perspective as they look out over new building works.
On one side of the old fisheries building, empty for over 30 years, this piece by Polish artist Etam Cru, seems to hide from the construction of new apartments when the old building could be refurbished. And on the opposite face of the same building…
By Askew One and Elliot Francis Stewart (NZ) this figure is set against some Kaurna words – the First Nations people of this region. More digging up of traditional lands in the foreground.
And finally, a piece by Chilean artist INTI, that is so pretty on it’s own.
But sailing into view between the two rows of new buildings, it has a different tone.
They’re for Becky’s squares.
These bollards were photographed from each end of the wharf, with a shift in angle due to building works.
For Becky’s squares.
Still ambling around Port Adelaide, I saw some murals that begged to be photographed. This house had not one, but two bird murals.
On the first side, an owl, perched on the window.
On the other, a flock of birds, flying out of the window.
Or are they? Can you see the illusion?
For more squares, illusory or not, see Becky’s squares.
One is for The Ghan, a train that goes from South Australia to the Northern Territory and the other is a small steam train that travels the foreshore from Semaphore to Fort Glanville, in South Australia.
The Ghan is 2979km long and has a standard gauge of 1435mm (Wikipedia). The origins of the name are disputed, although both theories mention the Afghans, who once operated a successful camel train through the centre of Australia.
Semaphore Steam Train track is 2km long and has a 457mm gauge. That’s ten times smaller than The Ghan.
A popular tourist or family activity, particularly during the holidays, it runs along the foreshore, parallel to both the road and the tide and is a great sight, whether you are on it or viewing the people waving from open carriages.
Another perspective for Becky’s squares.
The answer to that probably depends on whether you are the thing hiding or the one who found it. I have no idea what it is but I hope it is only seeking shelter, not food.
They’re for Becky’s Squares. See more here.
The bins are on the sidewalk, the fog is in.
Another matter of perspective for Becky’s squares.
For Becky’s squares, these mining truck angles, from Kalgoorlie. For reference, or perspective, my husband and I are 175cm tall.
The Kalgoorlie Super Pit in WA was the biggest open cut gold mine in Australia until 2016. A larger one in WA was opened that year.
The Caterpillar 793C is about 6.5m high (21.1 ft).
