Sure is a dramatic sky! Can you tell us more about the icon, please?

WindRowe,
Thanks for looking this is a set of five figure heads that are placed as a public sculpture at the point where seafaring boats used to turn in olden Melbourne. It is supposed to represent the variety of peoples who emigrated to this far flung place. It is called Constellation. Here is a broader view.



If you are interested in public art/street sculpture, then melbourne has a wealth of it. In my own small way I have been documenting some of it as an exercise in learning how to use my FZ30. ( http://rafael.zenfolio.com/p443166915/)

Thanks for providing the info on the icon. I, too, was interested. Australia is an interesting country, as most anywhere else in the world. There are so many places I have never been and will never see. That is why I love this forum so much. It is a place to share your place with someone else, and vice versa.

Thanks for sharing with us.

could not agree more about the joys of sharing like this in a world wide forum. I have been fortunate to travel to many places, but will not get to travel to even a tiny fraction that I would like to, so seeing people's love of their place in the photos shared here is wonderful.

Great to have you on the forum.

Great shots on your "First day of Summer" post and todays.

I recognised the icon immediately, it is Mick Malthouse at a press conference
