52/30/5 Week 30

July 26th, 2009

For the first time in many months, I am actually up to date and posting the photos within the week they’re for. Week 30 took me to the Carillion in Lake Burley Griffin.

The Carillion was a gift from the UK Government in 1970. Living only 2km or so from it was incredibly annoying, as the bells are played very frequently.
