Addendum: NGVI visit

Some final scenes from a lovely day on 13mar.

First pic shows the re-designed café on the ground floor in keeping with the David Hockney colourful exhibition, which closed that day. The big screen, of 18 rectangular panels, showed a continuously moving scene of a lush garden somewhere.

The next three pix were taken from the foyer area of the Asian section on the first floor, looking out in the distance to the Peter Rowland café, he being a famous Melbourne caterer. It is fine dining on a beer budget. Recommended. We are also looking at the front entrance’s famous glass water wall, to the right, and some people coming in down below.

Finally, are those people sleeping, there, on those poufs? Lol. No, they are enjoying viewing the full-sized glass abstract mosaic ceiling of the Great Hall designed by artist, Leonard French. 😎

This pic was also taken at the same café the same day. I’ve already posted a b+w photo of it. Prepared in PicSketch, the first version below I prefer as it kinda describes the colour scheme, lots of brown.


The next has more colour from the original photo.


And the next is the basic version one first gets when loading an image into the app. The café name is located in the photo on the wall.

Lumia950 smartphone has a selfie camera. I’ve never bothered about such things, except to occasionally have someone else take a photo of me with my phone, like when having a new haircut or new spectacles. Taking selfies with a selfie camera is not easy! I now understand why some people use those long sticks on which to put the phone!

The image below is a close-crop of what is called a Living Image, meaning that a few nanoseconds of a moving image, ie video, is played before it becomes a still image. I don’t like this feature and have turned it off.
