Walk to Work, Melbourne in spring

At 6.30 in the morning it is now light in Melbourne during early spring. This is the view from the Princes Bridge looking down the Yarra River. The bridge in the picture is a lock bridge, where couples lock their padlocks to the rails as a symbol of their everlasting love. (I always think forever is a really, really long time).

Hamer Hall and the Arts Centre spire.

Tram Bar. I often see tourists taking photos of themselves standing in front of this tram of an afternoon.

The National Gallery of Victoria. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier advertisements have just gone up. Scary stuff.

Sculpture outside the Victorian College of the Arts. To me this piece screams confusion. Constructed like a snowman, there is a squashed head laying on it’s side at the top and a fist in the middle section. I quite like this sculpture, but have no idea what it means. Not sure anyone else does either. Maybe it doesn’t mean anything. Maybe it doesn’t matter that I have no clue.
