Last Friday I made the trip to Melbourne to watch the Melbourne Rebels play the ACT Brumbies. The previous week the Rebels had their first win of the season so I was looking forward to a good game.
While in Melbourne my daughter had an appointment in St Kilda Road so I went with her and while she was at her appointment I walked to the National Gallery of Victoria.
Also along St Kilda road there was a parking station for bikes which you can hire.
Having lived in Canberra for many years we were able to make full use of the National Gallery of Australia but now that I live in Metung I don’t have that facility close by so I took the opportunity to visit the National Gallery of Victoria.
There was an exhibition on but unfortunately I only had thirty minutes to spare so didn’t buy a ticket for that, instead I took the opportunity to view the ballet costumes that were on display.
The camera focus is not good as I had to take the photo through glass. The jerkin is made of leather and looked incredibly soft.
All the costumes were amazing, some I wondered how the ballet dancer would be able to dance wearing the particular costume.
Two aspects of the NGV that I always enjoy are the waterwall at the front of the building.
