While our travel plans are on hold I’m joining in every day with Becky’s July Square Perspectives Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme of perspective. My posts represent the definition of perspective as a vista – seeing something over distance or time.

    • I can see why you would think the building is soulless, but it really isn’t. I was wishing while I was doing this post that we’d taken more photos inside. The Great Hall is beautiful and there are many art works of significance to Australia’s history and indigenous perspectives. There’s also a gallery featuring every Prime Minister. The whole complex is full of symbolism and has a uniquely Australian feel. I can’t remember but wonder if photos weren’t allowed inside.
