Skywatch Friday


The Fowlers Lion Factory Building on North Terrace. I used to drive past this building regularly coming over the Morphett Street Bridge into Adelaide from North Adelaide. This was taken from North Terrace with the tram wires crossing the photograph. Fowlers manufactured groceries including flour and honey and the building dates back to the early 20th century.

More skies and stuff at the Skywatch Friday Site.

I love the Australian skies. I got few shots of Adelaide skies myself last year in Jan 2008. Fabulous rooftop of the building kissing the beautifully clad skies in white clouds.
