Canberra is celebrating 100 Years!

                                       Happy Birthday Canberra

It's Canberra 100th Birthday and so much is happening in the Capital. The weather is absolutely brilliant and the events lined up to kick off the celebrations all weekend are amazing. It's going to be a big weekend!

On the 8th March I headed off to see the Enlighten Festival. What a visual delight it was.
I started at the National Gallery and walked to Old Parliament House, across Reconciliation Place towards the National Library soaking up the atmosphere and clicking away at every visual display change on the icons. Along the walk back- I stopped to take more pictures of the Portrait Gallery and back to sit and soak up he stunning designs on the Gallery. The artwork of Toulouse Letrec as  never  seen  before. I hope you enjoy the pictures and can appreciate the magnificence of the buildings and the artwork.
