Looking north east
I don't normally take photos in this direction from our balcony. You will have to click on the pic to see it properly. In the foreground is the roof of the church St Thomas Aquinas with midphoto the lush green playing fields of Melbourne Grammar.
The white high rise apartment block is in Anderson Street, South Yarra and overlooks the Royal Botanic Gardens. To the right of the building can be seen peeking over the tree tops is the old match manufacturer Bryant and May's clocktower and to the far left, the steeple of St Ignatius on Richmond Hill. I noted the other day that there are three churches with a couple of hundred metres in Church Street, but of course the catholic St Ignatius sits at the highest point, as is the Australian custom.
