 Yesterday my husband, Mike and I went into the city, Melbourne, for lunch and to go to a special event.  Our local radio station had a bit of a meet and greet and tickets to the Hollywood Costumes exhibition.  It was held at ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) at Federation Square for more information check out this link.

The pics in the collage are taken inside Federation Square and out through the windows into Flinders Street.
It is such an interesting building and contrasts with some of our original city buildings and the trams.

The costume exhibition was fantastic.  Such fabulous clothes that we could see up close.  I intend to go back for a second look and I hope it wont be so crowded.

 Because Mike was driving I was able to take some pics on the way home.  Close to the city we have fantastic sporting arenas.  The MCG, host to famous cricket games and the tennis centre where the Australian Tennis Open is held each summer.  Most recently we have added a stadium where rugby and some soccer games are held.


 Our city and surrounds are a great combination of old and new.

We have a fantastic road system and even though it takes more than an hour for us to drive to the city we do so in comfort and safety.



I enjoyed looking at the photos of the lovely building of Melbourne.. Such a neat place indeed. Hugs Judy

brings back memories of my visits to Melbourne but I am sure the building in Federation Square was not there when I lived there in 1970.
