Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Aurora


"Aurora"
Created by Geoffrey Bartlett, this wonderful artwork dwarfs any who walk under its arch. Standing at the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Bourke Street, it is a giant of gleaming steel with gracefull curves and is lit internally at night creating an impression of a floating ball.

This sculpture is awesome. The Kogarah School of Arts building on my blog is in the Victorian Italianate style. I found some information on the Australian Heritage Database and I've added the link in my post. Cheers.

What an amazing structure - you really caught it well with the angle of the building in the first shot.

Steffe - thanks. It is an intriging piece.

Sonia - Sometimes coming on a piece of art/sculpture by accident is better than planning to visit one.

Autumn Belle - You're right - it is modern, but also very likeable.

J Bar - I think it's one of the best I've seen - certainly unusual. Thanks for the info re architecture.:-)

AB - At first sight, it reminded me of the Daily Planet which featured in the"Superman" series.

JM - thanks. I'm glad you like it.

Floral Friday - thanks, I shall have to make sure I can name them.
No worries about the shrimp. WE're having a barbie on Derby Day - snags and dead horse on the Yarra. I shall think of you:-)

Snags - bangers - sausages.
Dead horse - sauce.
Cheers.
