The punctum of an odd day...

On a day where the first female Australian prime minister was instated, two tennis players got their own 10 hour version of '15 minutes' and footballers again tugged for both our attention and at our emotions, the thing that most struck me was an architectural oddity ... for want of a better word.

Strangely touching.

I've since read another article that mentioned that when the portrait image was printed in 2005, Julia Gillard was criticized for a supposedly significant cultural faux pas.... apparently not having fruit in a fruit bowl is a big deal.
