VIEW FROM A SOUTHBANK APARTMENT

The view to the southwest towards Albert Park Lake and Port Phillip Bay here shows the busy arterial roads and a number of new apartment buildings built or being built. The signs at the bottom left are interesting and perhaps say something about our culture. Increasing numbers of people are now apartment dwellers in the inner city, living a café culture life. The young professionals, especially live life in the fast lane with some of the new city apartments not even having a proper kitchen (just a "galley"), as most meals are consumed out or ordered in...


The sign below is from a successful advertising campaign for Australian wine (which we do rather well...). I dare say there will be rather a lot of drinking and carousing today to celebrate our National Day! Happy Australia Day!


This is a post for the Signs, Signs meme.

  4. What a brilliant view of Melbourne! And the weather today was so kind to us for our Australia Day! And a Yalumba wine sign so prominently displayed in the midst of tar, glass and cement under dazzling blue skies is draught for the spirit!

    Happiness to you today!

  5. Happy Australia Day to you!
    Although I have not heard of Yalumba wines, I have certainly heard of - and taste tested - many, many others.
