Fingers crossed something happens with it.

Melbourne is super beautiful as a whole, but i have to say that the older parts in the cbd are the best, full of life, coulour, adds etc.

southbank and the docklands are a bit boring and lifeless, but luxurious nevertheless

thanks hellospank, thanks alot

this building is called the argus after the argus newspapper

i'm not sure when it was opened. i always thought that was a render but it looks like a photo, so maybe there was actually a clock tower

latrobe uni were going to restore the building inside and were going to finish the clock tower. however i believe they are lodging legal action against the former owners of the building because they claim that they were mislead as to internal state and condition of the building. its going to cost them a lot more to restore then they had thought and there are problems with asbestos and the like

I can only keep it up if people comment and ask questions about the photos and the locations. If they don't i might just throw my camera in the rubbish bin
as i am just wasting time.
