Where Art Thou Week 17: Variety Entertainers of the Century

Photobucket

Located in Waterfront City, Docklands and measuring 11m long, the stunning mosaic mural is a tribute to the greatest Australian entertainers. Created by renowned mosaic artist David Jack and based on an original artwork by Jamie Cooper, the mural captures each of the 100 entertainers in their hey day in a unique tribute.

In fact, the mural is soooooo long, I had to take several steps back just to catch the entire mural in its entirety. Here’s how it looks in its full glory.

Since no one else attempted to answer it, full points to decryption for answering half the question. Good job!

Where Art Thou Week 16: John Darling & Son Flour Mill

Photobucket

Brett scored top points for correctly guessing (and really quickly too) this week’s locale. I took this picture on this Tuesday morning after a quick stop at Bunnings. Was bored waiting for the train, so I thought why not rekindle my Where Art Thou post.

An iconic building for the best part of a century, John Darling & Son Flour Mill is located along the Sunshine end of Ballarat Road, right next to Albion station. Listed on the Victorian Heritage Council’s Heritage Register, the building is one of the most elaborate brick mills built in the early 20th century Victoria. The Darling family also played a large role in the Australian milling industry.

Where Art Thou Week 16

Here’s a tough cracker for you readers. Neil’s been kind enough to pick up from where I’ve left off and since it’s been over a year I thought I might just spice things up a little.

One point if you can tell me what building this is, and two if you know where I was when this picture was taken.

Answers on Friday.

Where Art Thou Week 15-The Night Cat

I really thought this was going to be a hard one. I mean it was just a picture of a wall. Jopas figured it out within an hour of the posting. Good job.

The Night Cat is one of the best venues in Fitzroy for live acts and dancing. Nope, not your usual Billy Joel cover songs but all kinds of music like jazz and salsa. Unlike most other venues, The Night Cat has loads of room to spread out, so there’s little chance of absorbing other people’s sweat (unless that’s your thing). On certain nights of the week, they teach various dance styles such as the Salsa. If you really want to hear the 80’s cover songs, then don’t fret, 120 Bar across the street plays 80’s music all night. Note: Both venues enforce the 2AM Lockout.

You can name what’s in the building or name of the street. It’s one of my favourite places in Melbourne (although not located in the CBD) to go on the weekends. Where Art Thou? Put your guesses in the comments. Answers on Friday.

Where Art Thou Week 14-Telstra Dome, Matthew Kreuzer

June 1 132

Almost as quick as last week, shniken, guessed the place, the time, and the person correctly. This picture was taken from the seats in between the interchange benches at last week’s match between Geelong and Carlton. The player on the bicycle is Matthew Kreuzer, last year’s #1 draft pick. It must be distracting hearing Kruz! from the crowd everytime he touches the ball. This in conjunction with picking up Chris Judd from West Coast has put the Blues from the bottom of the ladder last year, to almost breaking into the 8. Towards the end of the game, Carlton’s Paul Bower got into a crunching tackle and copped a season ending shoulder injury. To see a guy that huge on the verge of tears showed just how painful footy can be.

I took this photo with my new Canon SD870 IS camera, which is a great little camera. I’m looking for a specific where and bonus points for a guess of who that is. Where Art Thou? Put your guesses in the comments.

I thought I had you, I really did but it took dlutchy only 42 minutes to guess the Royal Exhibition Building. This monument is a gift to Victoria from one of it’s earliest settlers. Thanks to williewonker for the picture. Next time, I’ll make it harder.

It’s been a little while since we did these. Frankly, it’s been tough trying to find pictures that are not so easily guessable. I’ve walked by this many times and have never noticed these loving kangaroos. Where Art Thou? Put your guesses in the comments. Answer on Friday.
