In The Middle of Somewhere (Post#6) : At Princess Bridge (St Kilda Road)

The building is a business establishment where Australian School Management, Careers Australia and Swinburne University of Technology can be found. Outside the building it looks like a church because of its exterior design. During White Night event, the building transform its looks. Photo is part of White Night Melbourne Photo Collection last February 2014.
White Night event makes a building different from it used to be for one night per year. Forum Melbourne is one of the known theatre and live music in the city. Its Moorish Revival exterior design came alive to another dimension will not immediately recognize that it’s really a building because of the vivid and colorful lightnings used to match the image and the building as if you are just watching a 3D virtual effects in the dark. Photo is part of White Night Melbourne Photo Collection last February 2014.
Anyone who had been in Melbourne definitely knows this famous meeting place in the city – Federation Square. Because of its strategic location and creative design of the building, it become known to everyone as this is the usual meeting place not only for cultural and other scheduled activities in the city but also a meeting place for free walking tours and for anyone who just wanted to meet and chill. I regret that during Open House Melbourne event, I was never selected to see what’s inside the building. I had been inside for just few minutes for peeking but nothing more elaborate than that. I was able to capture this one during dinner with friends around this area. Photo captured last October 2014.
The building was built during Depression and the tallest building in Melbourne in 1932. First building in Victoria state to have escalators and featured the largest diesel generator of its time in Australia to power three high-speed lift. It was also one of the first Victorian buildings with automatic cooling and rubbish and postal chutes on every floor.
Because of its interior design, I can understand why people loves to stroll inside this arcade. I myself can’t stop to be amaze when I was walking here. I had previous post of the arcade where can be found >>> here <<< where photos captured at night from one of my walking adventure in the city . This photo was part of The Block Arcade Photo Collection July 2013 during Open House Melbourne event.

Arts and Craft (Post#3) : World War II Memorial – Cenotaph Sculpture By George Allen
Within the area of Shrine of Remembrance, there are lots of sculpture are displayed which depicts the bravery and brotherhood of soldiers at war. This sculpture at the top of the Cenotaph which stands at the forecourt captured my attention and admired it more when I discovered that the statuary shows six men in the uniforms of the three Australian services – Navy, Army, and Air Force carrying a bier on which lies the figure of the dead comrade draped with Australian National Flag. It symbolizes the debt of the living to the dead, the eternal bond between the fallen and those who enjoy the fruits of their sacrifice.
Arts and Craft (Post#2) : “Going Home” By Han Mei Ling
I am curious what the title of the sculpture after I saw it while descending towards South Arrival Immigration Hall at Terminal 3 in Changi Airport for my entry to Singapore.

China artist Han Mei Ling’s 900kg sculpture follows a theme that is intrinsically Confucian yet universal – the importance of family. The sculpture represents a family nucleus through three varieties of metal: steel for the father, bronze for the mother and gold for the child perched on the patriarch’s shoulder. Han surrounds the family with a flock of colourful birds, articulating the notion of returning and being homeward
