    Where was that photo taken? It appears to be a University, right?

    And there are 2012 ONLY if you count the MotorCycle also as a 'bike' !

    WOW. I have been there (more than once) but did not recognize it. My time spent outside the building was only to grab a taxi. I don't think I had seen it from that perspective.

    I will never forget the interior*!

    Maybe it wasn't there when you were there? They've been rebuilding part of the station (and a new metro station if I'm correct) for the last 3-4 years, so it might be just a temporary solution.

    Do you know what the "M" and "W" in their crown stands for? The design is quite avant garde!

    ok, point taken. Consider me having been .

    Maybe I over-reacted a bit, but it cheezes me off when people complain about fluff, wherever, and then go post what, imo, is fluff. So I'll about it from now on

    Sorry bo5ton, if you were offended.

    Moving on....................2012 bottles.

    The bottles were laid horizontally as "bricks" to build the house.

    I didn't actually take the photo. It (35mm slide) was taken by my dad on one of our family "Sunday drives" to The Dandenongs (about 40kms east of Melbourne). It would have been around the early 70's. I can't remember exactly where in The Dandenongs the house was and I have no idea if it is even still there.

    ....
    two thousand and ten
    ....
    ....
    ....
    two thousand and eleven
    ....

    So @guido2004 , no-one's taken your bike. It must be in there somewhere. What colour is it?

    Edit:

    Newsflash: hell must have frozen over because I've just used one of these new tagging/mentioning/whatever thingies for the first time ever!!!!!!

    No it's not me. But the question and my answer is moot because I can't prove it's not me anymore than anyone can prove it is me . Suffice to say that there used to be local laws, and I'm not sure if they still exist but probably do, preventing people from publishing other peoples' personal details (photos of them etc) without their permission so I blurred out the person in the photo.

    Or maybe Kinglake.

    And it's actually 13, 569 bottles, too.

    I did a quick google of "house of bottles" and there are lots of them around.

    A photo of the Kinglake house as it was in Nov. 2005 (not my photo)

    I don't know if the Kinglake house is the same one or not. If it is, then it's had a new roof put on it and some other slight renovations over the decades since the photo I posted was taken. Looks like it might have had some bottles added to it as well

    Maybe it's a similar house based on the original design and built by the same people in a different location. I'm not sure.

    Like I said:

    Two images combined into one. First image is of the fireworks in the sky and the other one is a misfire/ground explosion with several police motorcycles passing through the frame. I hope this BB img code works...
