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.

Room With A View

 
Let there be light
At the Southgate complex in Southbank, you get a fabulous view of the Yarra from this upper arched area. The "round the world" globe is decorative with stained glass underneath. Through the arch you can see Flinders Street Station, with the trees below forming part of the City Walk along the northern riverbank.


Below is a shot of the glass roof and metal lighting.

That first image is so rich and fresh and engaging. I enlarged it to study the globe, the architecture, the people gathered on the balconies. Wonderful image, BG. Hope you have a fabulous holiday.

The globe is wonderful, and so are the two other artworks on the corners of the upper floor. The view outside is fantastic too!

I hope you're enjoying your Malaysia and Cambodia vacation!
