I love seeing old and new buildings together, such contrast in styles.
Looks like a humming bird to me.As for the last pic, I know I know that building but can't place the corner.Old and new can complement each other, the two don't have to be mutually exclusive. I'll probably be labelled a heretic for saying so, but I think Melbourne Museum makes an interesting counter point to the Royal Exhibition Building.
Agree River. I just don't like seeing good old buildings demolished. There are plenty of bad old buildings to get rid of.It looks a bit like the symbol that was on Brisbane's Phoenix trams to me Ben. Melbourne Museum, concrete paving to the horizon, more concrete and even more, relieved by a bit of glass. The interior is fine. I tend to use interesting when I am damning with feint praise. I can't even say it is interesting. You are a heretic.
I did not have the Dupain shot of Railway Square - but I do now. Thank you ...
Before you change something, find out why it is the way it is in the first place - unknown.
