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. 😎

The WP phone posting system doesn’t like continuing writing after a certain point, so the need for this second post!!

This above is the final image I wish to show. Of teatree, the small flowers, and hakea, the pom-pom-like flower, which I have photographed and posted here too. Hers is a hand-coloured woodcut. Mine below:
