Video:Day Out in Melbourne

This is a brief touristy video down memory lane as I touch base with  haunts in the city I grew up in.

 It is also one of those learning exercises: shooting video while walkin' n' talkin'...and editing with Sony Vegas.

When I visit Melbourne -- as I do annually --  I eat at the same places -- the same Greek cake shop, the same Chinese restaurant -- and always check out the collection at the national gallery of Victoria and  visit sundry points of my especial nostalgic interest.

 Covered in the video is the ANZ bank I used to work at in 1969 before I joined the building industry pouring cement; and the Bourke Street Homewares store my father managed for Buckley & Nunn's (now owned by David Jones).
