It's been a while..



... since I took some updated shots of the Museum WA project. I took the pic below yesterday from the second floor of the State Library WA with the fish-eye lens, it was the only way to fit the whole structure into the frame. Due for completion and re-opening next year I can't wait to visit. Thankfully the old museum is being restored and incorporated into the new design. Have a look here to see the most amazing shot and short video of how the new museum will look. I'm happy to see that the beautiful old stairs here and the splendid reading room here that I fell in love with when I took those shots will remain in tact. As much as I don't like change I have to admit it will look pretty spectacular, what do you think? Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  1. It looks like it's going to be radically different. I think we'll have to wait until it's physically done to judge the end result.

  4. Huge building, makes the bit on the end a bit out of place which I presume had a preservation order on it

  5. Thanks so much for the link. That video was amazing. I'm curious to know what the building in the center between the old building and the new one is. It is also a beauty. This is going to be great when they get it done.

  9. The trouble with change is that it is often not for the better. However this project looks promising.

  11. It will be awesome, Grace, but, uhhhh, all the glass with the views deep, deep down - a challenge for me...

  14. Way to fit the whole structure in the frame. I love it when key places are featured on a city daily photo site. Change is hard, but can be good! I think the public will be won over.

  16. I love the video of the new museum, and I am definitely impressed with all the computer generated people. They are all so animated and well behaved, lots of diversity, there are even elderly with walkers and people in wheelchairs, families with little kids. But no squalling children laying down on the floor and refusing to go any further. all museums have a couple of those!!!!!

  17. So wonderful that the old museum is incorporated into the new and shiny one.

  18. Try shooting the same scene with a zoom lens or even a 50mm. As a panorama. All you have to do then is to learn how to stitch together the photos.
