A picturesque pocket

North Adelaide is traditionally accepted as a desirable residential address, with its fascinating mix of history, architecture, wealth and "upper end" retail.
Out for a stroll with my fellow photography enthusiast friend, we soaked up the ambience of Stanley Street on a very pleasant afternoon.







In addition to a number of early 1800 "row houses", Stanley Street also showcases some more architecturally modern, gated-entry residences.

We completed our outing at a fascinating organic coffee establishment in Melbourne Street (the next street over), that is dominated by retail and corporate operations.
The inside wall of the cafe provided some unusual entertainment :

I like the autumn leaves and colours - I have not spent much time in Adelaide, but it looks tempting.

Cheers
