Long Live the Queen

On holidays last week meant that I spent some time in the city. No matter what reason I have for going I always seem to end up having coffee and window shopping in the Queen Victoria Building. This beautifully restored four level arcade was once earmarked for demolition - and I for one am so glad that didn't happen! If you click to enlarge the photo you can just see the Queen herself in a glass case at the top of the escalator.
Back to school this week, so the days have flown by. After a sluggish start (and that was just the teachers) we are all right back into it. I've started another art course on Thursday evenings - mixed media - with the same great teacher, Gina. I love it so much I don't even feel tired at 10pm when I get home - 6am Friday morning was a different story however! Roll on the weekend.

One of the few things about cities worth enjoying! Been loving your pics! Thanks!

One of my favorite shopping arcades- the others are in Melbourne.
I remember taking my kids there and Julia aged 4 was disappointed because she had not 'seen' the real QV.
Your photo is very evocative....
