Daily Photo – Monday 10th August 2015 – From the 18th floor window

On the 18th floor, things outside start to look a little smaller.

Featured here in the foreground is the entrance/exit of the busway tunnel that goes under the main shopping precinct of the city.

Behind is the red roofed Treasury Casino complex (which I haven’t yet been inside), with what I call Victoria square in the middle. I’m sure it has an official name, but as it contains a statue of Queen Victoria I’ve gone with that for now.

Behind that again is a building occupied by State government, with to the right a new building that they will occupy once finished. That new building looked like a very tall car park when we first arrived, so it’s been interesting to see it rise and transform.

What’s outside the window nearest you right now?

    Right now… a building site. It used to be a load of old brick buildings (one was painted pink), but over the last week they have all been flattened and the huge pile of rubble taken away. A new building is due to be erected there, but there will be an archaeological dig first. Will be interesting to watch.

      Is that the old pea building?
      Will definitely be interesting to hear of any finds.
      If I were still there I’d be tempted to take a weekly photo to show how it changes over time 🙂
