    • Thanks Janet. I love the way two very different buildings face each other across the park. The museum is modern, the Exhibition Hall 19th century, and the work well together.

      • Me too!! I could observe this especially in the City of London with those old little churches standing right next to a scyscraper! ItΒ΄s so awesome! I know many people prefer it just one way or the other, but I think the interaction between those opposites is truly fascinating πŸ™‚ I see that we share many interests and passions, Su πŸ˜‰ Have a lovely weekend! xoxo

      • I know what you mean; I hate when heritage buildings are totally demolished, but I’m also kind of pragmatic, and don’t believe the past should be preserved at all costs. I know what you mean about London. I also like the juxtaposition of old and new, but the last time I was there, it seemed there were so many new buildings it was getting really difficult to see the old at all; except at street level, close up. Hope you are having a good weekend.

      • Last time I was in London was 2011. Back then it was still quite balanced but as for now I think you might be right from what IΒ΄ve seen in news coverage and architecural magazines. New buildings really seem to take over the City and I fear it will loose its unique character very quickly indeed. Maintaining equilibrium is a tricky business especially when thereΒ΄s money to be made…

  2. I have not seen the exhibition hall in about 20 years. I studied abroad to Uni of Melbourne from the US in 1995 and took my final exams in that building. As I walked through the door and checked in, I found my table and the instructor handed me my exam. I looked at it for about 5 minutes, looked around and said, “I’m going to the pub.” All my friends in the class looked at me and had no clue what was going on. When I settled into the pub and waited a couple of hours they came in one by one and giving me a rub for leaving. Good times. Your picture brought back a lot of memories. Love Melbourne.

    • I’ve had exams like that, but always stuck it out. Admittedly, I’ve sometimes resorted to the wisdom of Douglas Adams and Monty Python to write responses to questions that weren’t exactly asked …
