There’s a saying about not being able to see the wood for the trees. When things get so cluttered that the simple solution is hard to find. Some days are like this with clarity being annoyingly elusive and yet other days….ping!
I love this picture – I took it recently at Federation Square in Melbourne. I’ve taken photos there before – I find the architecture intriguing with the use of many mediums – glass, copper, steel and concrete – the angles and the reflections. I get absolutely mesmerised. And I marvel at the intelligence that put this wonderfully huge puzzle together.
I love it when city developers dare to be different. Inevitably they meet with resistance…and I believe this was the case with Federation Square. But give it a bit of time, and these feats of architecture take on a life of their own. How short-sighted we can be at times! We can’t see the wood for the trees.
