Melbourne Daily Photo
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.

Melbourne's Mosaic Mural
This magnificant work of art is at Flinders Street Station, when you come out the Swanston Street exit just before Princes Bridge.
It was created by Mirka Mora, a true bohemian who was born in Paris in 1928 and migrated with her husband Georges to Australia in 1951.
Mirka has had around thirty-five solo exhibitions since 1956, including a retrospective exhibition of fifty years of her work at Heide Museum of Modern Art in 1999-2000. She was made Officier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government in 2002.
A truly beautiful picture, I never grow tired of looking at it. More information about Mirka here and here.
