Oh.. I wish this facility was here!

As I said earlier I wanted to go out this weekend and try the Nikon D5100 and see what it was like. One place I’ve been wanting to photograph for some time was the State Library of Victoria. So my daughter and I went into the city, I went to take photos and she tagged along so she could shop. All the photos have been taken with the 5100 and then processed. They were opened in camera raw and a few things adjusted, but nothing else.
This is a sculpture on the corner in front of the State Library, and you can see the library in the background. It is the building with all the columns. It is an amazing building. First built in 1856, I think, and when it was first built it also housed the Museum and the Art Gallery. All three were there until the 60′s when the art gallery moved down the road, and the musuem moved, I don’t know exactly when, but in the last 20 years.
This is the main entrance. I worked here about 22 years ago and when I did there was a revolving door in front. It was taken out because, apparently, it was too dangerous. It was great, I loved the revolving door.
