Todays Friday Photo is brough on a Saturday (again).

The Malls Balls

(click to go full size)

Rundle Mall, in Adelaide, is THE shopping street. And Bert Flugelman’s Big Silver Balls have been a fixture for about 30 years. The sculpture is known, somewhat unkindly, as “The Malls Balls”. Or in my case: Bert’s Balls.

If you look carefully, you’ll see the subject in the reflection… hunt carefully for Borders Books.

Wow well done not getting yourself in the shot. I photographed a mirrored ceiling on the weekend and just caught myself in the corner . .

Borders Books………I have to cross to the other side of the mall when passing, otherwise I get sucked right in and can’t escape for at least an hour.

Where would Adelaideans be without Bert’s balls – where would they meet each other? A couple of years ago we did manage to live without them when they were taken away to be ‘polished’ – who knew there were knocking shops for silver testicles in the city of churches?
