I climbed the steps of the library, looked back down and noticed this sculpture. Having just had a bower bird move into our garden and build a bower I felt sure this must be imitating one of those. So I walked over to find out but the signage says it's about fire and water.

I am an old fashioned type of person. Nothing will persuade me that these buildings are lovely. So different from the inspiring sandstone campus I attended. And so like the equally ugly award winning Cameron Offices where I worked in Canberra, built in the same era.
That's the library below, which is a little bit smarter, but I reckon the building beside it looks like a car park.

I love this bookshop, I imagine writing essays based on the book titles. Just look at the ones you can see here -- Island Home, Behind the Lines, Comfort Zone, Barry Jones, The High Places, That Empty Feeling, Public Library -- I am sure I could make up something for each of those.

I've been gone a few weeks and have been out and about but haven't found the energy to post any images so it's time a corrected that.
We go to Canberra regularly. Last time I was there I found this monkey at my usual haunt the National Library.
Yep another library, you are right if you are beginning to think that libraries and bookshops are just about the only places I go ... but I do go to lots of different ones.
