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?

Behind the cultural centre bus station there is a little open area with grass, sculptures and a number of water features. These cast bronze pelicans tucked away behind the Arts Museum only get a limited audience, compared to the thousands of people who pass just metres away on the busway.
