Melbourne White Night 2014

Melbourne put on a great party on Saturday night/ Sunday morning.  Half a million people flooded into the CBD, and everybody seemed to be having a good time - including me!  Projections were a dominant theme in what I saw, but it was impossible to see everything.

Swanston Street early in the evening

Some of the projection inside the La Trobe Reading Room of the State Library, curling round the bookcases on the upper levels

Looking up at the dome of the reading room, or just flaked out?


The dome

It was quite extraordinary to see a large queue of people waiting outside the State Library at midnight to get in to see this.  This was the only thing I queued for, but there were substantial queues for some of the other venues too.  Since I was there I also took in the exhibition of Piranesi prints.

Not long after this I went off to bed.  The party continued until 7 am.
