THE BLOCK ARCADE
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

'The Block Arcade is a heritage shopping arcade in the central business district of Melbourne. Melbourne's Golden Mile heritage walk runs through the arcade. It was named number 4 in TripAdvisor's 'Australia's top 10 landmarks'. The arcade which was erected between 1891 and 1893 was designed by architect David C. Askew whose brief was to produce something similar to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan. The result was one of Melbourne's most richly decorated interior spaces, replete with mosaic tiled flooring, glass canopy, wrought iron and carved stone finishings. The exterior facade of the six storey office has nearly identical facades on Collins and Elizabeth Streets and is one of Australia's best surviving examples of the Victorian Mannerist style.'

READY TO FACE THE WORLD
Kennett River, Victoria, Australia

If you are a bit of an introvert, then the solitude of an isolated beach on a cool morning is all you need to recharge your inner battery. Of course, a strong coffee can add dramatically to your early morning demeanour. All of which has nothing to do with today's image, other than there wasn't another soul on the Kennett River beach when I captured this scene as the sun began to rise, and I had a strong coffee shortly after, so I was then ready to face the world again!

NORTH
Geelong, Victoria, Australia

'Located at the bay end bottom of Moorabool Street is one of Geelong’s most striking artworks. Entitled “North” this large seven part sculpture was designed by renowned sculpture Mark Stoner in 2000. North consists of seven sail or some people say shark fin like structures ranging from 2.2 to 3.5 metres high and built in rich greys, reds and earthy ochre coloured cement. The sculpture is amazing to walk around because of the clever positioning the profile and dimension of the surrounds so dramatically.' [intown.com.au] (Image#2621)

LADY JULIA PERCY ISLAND
The Crags, Victoria, Australia

On the horizon of today's photograph is a flat topped island called Lady Julia Percy Island. 'The island is about 2 kilometres in length by 1 kilometre in width, with an area of 1.33 square kilometres, comprising a plateau, varying in height from 32-46 metres asl, surrounded by cliffs, rock platforms and reefs. It contains an important seal breeding colony. It has a long history of human exploitation, which has drastically affected its vegetation communities, though it is now protected as a State Faunal Reserve. It is listed on Australia's Register of the National Estate. It is best viewed from The Crags or Yambuk Lake.' [Wikipedia] (Image#2620)

THE MOCK BATTLE
Queenstown, Tasmania, Australia

The late 1800s and early 1900s were a time of intense national (or imperial) pride, when men would “dress up in uniforms and go marching in the streets with the least provocation.” The Spion Kop canon is one of two cast in 1898 at the Queenstown smelters. A group of about 36 bagpipers calling themselves the ‘Gay Gordons’ challenged the local militia to a mock battle where they would defend Spion Kopf as a joke. Under the cover of darkness, they managed to acquire the cannon and hauled it to the top of Spion Kopf. Next day, as the militia advanced up the ‘Kopf’ a melee ensued. The cannon was fired in the general direction of the approaching enemy and in the confusion one of the advance party had his face ‘powder burnt’. [Inscription on plaque] (Image#2619)

EVERYDAY
Maits Rest, Victoria, Australia

A pleasant walk through an amazing ancient rainforest. This is what I experienced on a recent visit to Maits Rest, in Victoria's Otway Ranges. The beautiful tree ferns and huge trees that adjoin the walk refresh one's soul with every step. If I lived closer, I think I would take a walk here every day! (Image#2618)

MORE SHELTERED
Point Lonsdale, Victoria, Australia

You can almost feel the warmth of the morning sun on the cliffs at Point Lonsdale. This is a beautiful beach that overlooks the entrance to Port Phillip Bay. These cliffs are a little more sheltered than around on the ocean facing side of the point, so much so that some of the green life has had time to grow down the cliff face, a little. (Image#2617)

CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
Arapiles, Victoria, Australia

This little rock, sitting by itself on the Wimmera plains is called Mitre Rock. When I was a child I could look out our kitchen window and see it, and also Mt Arapiles a little further away. Being the only landmarks in what is a reasonably flat area of the state, they become a nostalgic reminder of my early life. The other reminder is the golden grass that was a summertime constant in the hot Wimmera, along with my close encounters with brown snakes, that still haunts me. (Imag

PART OF THE FUN
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

One of Melbourne's charms Is the little laneways that were built 150 years ago before the advent of motor vehicles and which have been repurposed in the 21st century. There are lots of bars, cafes and entertainment venues to be found, with part of the fun being the discoveries that are made when you wander around. In this laneway, I found a quirky bar with colourful lights, street art and even planters made from pallet wood filled with green life. (Image#2615)

SUCH SPEED AND POWER
Triplet Falls, Victoria, Australia

Just above Triplet Falls, in Victoria's Otway Ranges, the river starts to descend and the water begins to gather pace. As it passed where I was standing, there is a sharp drop into a narrow channel that has been eroded away over centuries. The white water then races under fallen trees and pass the beautiful tree ferns before dropping over the falls. I was amazed at how a quiet and relatively small stream of water could gather such speed and power on its journey from the Otway hilltops to the sea. (Image#2614)
