I was well in time for the fireworks but could not find an empty place offering a good vantage point to click pictures. So I decided to wait until the fireworks are over. I took this picture after the fireworks, smoke from the fireworks is also visible on top of the buildings.

 

Better luck next time!

From Wikipedia:

 

The Shrine of Remembrance, located in St Kilda Road, Melbourne, is one of the largest war memorials in Australia, and resides in Kings Domain. It was built as a memorial to the men and women of Victoria who served in World War I. It now serves as a memorial for all Australians who served in war and it is the site of annual observances of ANZAC Day (25 April) and Remembrance Day (11 November).

 

Designed by architects and veterans of World War I, Phillip Hudson and James Wardrop, the Shrine is designed in a classical style, being based on the Tomb of Mausolus at Halicarnassus and the Parthenon in Athens.

From the Official Site:

 

The Shrine of Remembrance was built between July 1928 and November 1934 in remembrance of the 114,000 men and women of Victoria who served and those who died in the Great War of 1914-1918 - 89,100 of them served overseas and 19,000 did not return.

 

The people of Victoria felt that their debt to these volunteers, who had defended them at such great costs to themselves and their families, should be recognised by a worthy permanent monument of remembrance.

 

Although the country was faced with frightful unemployment and financial difficulty in the late 1920s and the 1930s, so great was the gratitude of the people that the huge amount required to build the Shrine was raised or promised within six months from the opening of the appeal in 1928.

 

The design for the Shrine of Remembrance was selected by competition among Australian artists and architects. Eighty-three designs were submitted and the winning design was by two Melbourne returned-soldier architects, Philip Hudson and James Wardrop.

 

The inspiration for the external outline came from one of the seven wonders of the ancient world - the mausoleum at Harlicarnassus to Mausolus, King of Caria in South West Asia Minor.

 

Prince Henry, the Duke of Gloucester and son of King George V, officially opened the Shrine before a crowd of 300,000 people in November 1934.

 

Since then, it has been a growing monument, with other memorials added to the site to mark the service of successive generations, such as the Second World War Forecourt and the Remembrance Garden Post 1945 Memorial.

This pano was stitched from 9 images and is about 81 mega pixels. Some of the frames were horizontally shifted, but in order to get the field of view the camera needed to be panned a couple of times as well as using the shift movement.

 

The white streaks around the antenna in the tall buildings to the right of center are birds that constantly seem to circle the antenna for some reason.

"Under the Bridge" is a song by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on March 10, 1992 as the second single from the group's fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis wrote the lyrics to express a feeling of loneliness and despondency, and to reflect on narcotics and their impact on his life.

 

This factoid makes me feel old and as a result despondent too...!

Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne, (originally The Victorian Arts Centre), St Kilda Road, Southbank.

 

Hamer Hall (formerly the Melbourne Concert Hall) is a 2,661 seat concert hall, the largest venue in the Arts Centre complex, used for orchestra and contemporary music performances. It was designed by architect Sir Roy Grounds, and opened in 1982. It was later renamed Hamer Hall in honour of Sir Rupert Hamer (the 39th Premier of Victoria) shortly after his death in 2004.

 

Construction on the A$128.5 million redevelopment of Hamer Hall was completed in July 2012.

 

The Hamer Hall redevelopment is the first stage of the Southbank Cultural Precinct Redevelopment and will be delivered through an alliance between Arts Victoria, Major Projects Victoria, the Arts Centre, Ashton Raggatt McDougall and the Baulderstone.

 

The redevelopment of Hamer Hall includes a new outlook to the city and new connections to central Melbourne, St Kilda Road and the Yarra River, new and expanded foyer spaces, better amenities, new stairs, better disability access, escalators and lifts, and improved acoustics, new auditorium seating, and cutting-edge staging systems.
