Change of plans

On today's agenda was a visit to the Andreas Gursky exhibition at the NGV. We have seen his work at the Pompidou Centre in Paris and it's amazing. Some of the scenes so ordinary (supermarket aisles, forests) which, simply through the scope of the frame, become something else altogether. We arrived only to find "Closed Today" outside the gallery - bother!


So a trip to the gallery turned into visiting some of the landmarks those of us in Melbourne will recall with fondness from our own childhoods.
Then to a favourite place that children of my children's generation will associate as a Melbourne childhood destination ...

NGV not open! That is strange, especially during the time of year when people are most likely to want to visit. Looks like you had a lovely day, though.
