I know the owners of Box #2 - the one painted with the Australian flag and hence the most photographed box on the beach. They have difficulty using it now as the tourists object when they open it.

An iconic site in Melbourne and a real magnet for tourists, bridal parties and photographers, for very good reason.
You've captured it beautifully, in all its brilliant colour and liveliness.

James,
Lovely to see these additions to the Cities: Melbourne thread.
Some of my favourite photographic 'go-to' locations in bayside St.Kilda where there's always plenty of colour and action to be found.

National Gallery of Victoria (NGV)

The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is the oldest and most visited gallery in Australia. The Gallery hosts a wide range of international and local artists, exhibitions, programs and events; from contemporary art to major international historic exhibitions, fashion and design, architecture, sound and dance. Founded in 1861, today the NGV holds the most significant collection of art in the region; a vast treasury of more than 70,000 works that span thousands of years and a wealth of ideas, disciplines and styles. (source www.ngv.vic.gov.au)

Wonderful shots from the NGV. Its stellar collection was built upon the Felton Bequest through which over 15,000 major artworks have been acquired with a value in today's currency of over AU$2 billion.
Usually photos from the NGV are wide views highlighting its bold modern architecture, but these are more detail studies, of which my favourite is #3.

Same with me - missed it, too.

I love the gallery and Rialto shots! Great photography!

TFS, James!

Very nice Joe, love the seaside sunset theme to this set of images. The mirror works well on the 99II. I especially like #5. TFS
