Aussie, Singaporean and American suburbia


Looking at an ironic post about the iPhone on Leoville (heck I haven't posted anything about Leo Laporte for ages). I couldn't help but feel nostalgic, not for the US but for Australia. The olive coloured vegetation, the power lines, the street, the building, it looks as much like a suburban shopping block in Australia!

Here's the photo, copied onto my server so I'm not leeching off Leo's bandwidth, but links to his post:


A photo for comparison of Pooraka back in Adelaide I took last year:

And to compare the colour of the vegetation, here's a shot of Napier Rd in Singapore:
