Step inside the rainbow. Or maybe not...

Your Rainbow Panorama
I'll be honest with ya: this was supposed to be a completely different post. Something about how awesome it was to look out over my home town through the multi-coloured glass of this art installation, Your Rainbow Panorama, atop the local art museum.

Alas, Tony and I got about as close to it as the lady there with the red hair. And then we kinda looked at it and then at each other and just knew: yeah, there's no way we're going up there! As cool and interesting as it would have been... but when your legs start trembling and your stomach starts turning - I guess you kinda know that this particular piece of 'interactive' art is not something you wish to take part in. Damn fear of heights! ;-)

It is pretty though - I think they should leave it there - now that would be a landmark to write home about!

In stead of getting inside the rainbow in the sky, we went over and patted this odd and kinda endearing metal whale sculpture....
