A couple of words about Melbourne

We have been in Melbourne for a week.  So many interesting things to see and do at so many different levels.  Instead of posting a handful of photos, this post tries to capture a number of contrasts from two short phrases.

One Shot – Graffiti

Hosler street is famous for exhibiting the products of spray cans. Catching a denizen rather than a tourist walking by was a rarity.

Latin Scribbles – Marginalia

The State Library of Victoria houses two wonderful exhibits.  In the World of the Book exhibition they show Ptolemy’s master work.  It’s not in Greek.  All of original Greek editions were burned or destroyed.  It’s in Latin that was translated from Arabic by a monk 800 years ago. First, I did not know the works of Ptolemy had been lost for 1500 years.  Second, I am intrigued by all the notes written in the margins like a student’s cribbing.
