From Hermitage to the Skies

In this visual sociology installment using Vine, we go from Melbourne to Canberra to Brisbane. Hold onto your seats, it’s your visual sociology for September, October and November 2015! We’ll see opulent art and enjoy the simplicity of kite-flying and the soothing power of water.

Melbourne

From the Hermitage exhibition, Catherine the Great was inspired by the archaeology of Rome. 6 September

The Mind exhibition at Scienceworks museum. “The individuality inherent in our brain networks makes that of fingerprints…simple by comparision.” 7 September

Canberra

Showering lights at Bunda Street, in Canberra. 27 September

Meet the top of Black Mountain Tower

In the early 1970s, when it was announced that this tower would be built local academics, journalists and local politicians in Canberra protested due to the the unique local ecosystem. It was built regardless and it is owned by Telstra, Australia’s largest telecom company.

The view is breathtaking and the wind is ferocious, even on a wonderful sunny day. Given the weather, there is a high number of tourists here, speaking many different languages. 4 October

Share my walk down the Black Mountain. The Ngunnawal people are the traditional land owners. This is one of over 3,500 sacred Indigenous sites in Canberra. The bird sounds (mostly Spotted Pardalote) are very pretty and the trees and plants are even more beautiful. Here you see mostly Red Box trees but Narrow-leaf Bitter-peas also grow in this region.
