3485 - 10:03 Dieu Et Mon Droit

Treasury Place, Melbourne

In addition to the "three balls and crown" motif (image 3442), Melbourners also seem to be fond of the Royal coat of arms. (As perhaps befits a state named after a Queen.) In any case the gold lion, white unicorn (which could do with a touch of paint) and gold motto (which roughly translates to "God and my right") does make a colourful splash against the background of the Department of Education building in Treasury Place.

(The internal motto is "Honi soit qui mal y pense" (shame on him who thinks evil, more or less), though it's largely obscured by the critters' legs.)

A very fine exposure, lovely rendition of the colours and tack sharp too. A shot to be proud of! -v-
