Satisfying the Critics

Well, here it is. For everyone who has been demanding photos of cities, there is now a fairly large and comprehensive photo gallery of Melbourne -- the city we've called home for about three months now. There are two galleries, actually: Melbourne by Day and Melbourne by Night.

So what do you think? Is Melbourne all it's cracked up to be? Or have we been exaggerating?

Either way, we're leaving Melbourne in about a week for Canberra, where we'll be living for the remainder of our time in Australia (about two months). Melbourne: you've been great! We'll miss you.

Yay! More photos! I love the one of the coral, it's incredibly pretty. Almost makes me forgive it for scarring poor Mike on his trip to Hawaii. Almost. There's some wonderful architecture, too. (Althought I'm tempted to go tattling to George about the use of the term Art Deco. It's sure not like anything in that style that I've ever seen.) And if I ever start my blog up again, I'm totally going to steal that sinking library photo. Not sure for *what* yet, but it's too good to pass up.

So I finally believe that you spend time in the city. But given the sheer volume of photos -- and especially the night gallery featuring the 24-hour cafe -- I'm no longer convinced that you sleep. ;)

Oof! Those are some envy-inducing photos. Thanks for the stuck-in-my-cube-bored-to-tears entertainment!

Will comment more soon, but I thought you'd find this entertaining... this photo of yours from Melbourne:

reminded me of this photo from Toronto:

Hmmm... I see. It's not going to let me put images in a comment. And it's going to linkify that URL with the [ ]. Ok. I'll try again.
