Castlemaine slate? Perhaps. Or you may describe it as vertical crazy paving. Slate is a soft stone and if this slate is original work, I am surprised at that it has lasted so well. This type of slate comes in some lovely colours.
You need a very big crane to remove a crane. The redevelopment of 405 is almost complete now. My local erection is well ahead of Victor's. These photos were taken a good while ago. We are yet to confirm that it will be a hotel.
Don't click on this photo for a closer look.

A cool conversation pit at Melbourne University.
I was hard pressed to remember why I was at Melbourne University. Ah yes, there was a display booth, without much detail at all, promoting our yet to be built Metro Rail tunnel. I am not sure what this below is all about. What a waste of my time, but an old bloke does need an outing on a day off work.
No comment required.
A curious sculpture in the the grounds of Linden. Stone cushions are generally so comfortable, no?
Lastly, celebrity spot for the week, actor Stephen Curry in Prahran Market courtyard. R nudged me and pointed him out but R could not remember his name until I told him. R said that as he had a bunch of flowers in his hand, he must live locally. Well, that would be a surprise, famous actor lives in Prahran/South Yarra area. If you watch Australian tv, you will have seen him in one show or t'other, or on the big screen in a movie.
