The wife wanted to go into Melbourne and check out the Myer windows. Myer is a retail business which has been creating some magical animated displays for the past 65 years. It almost didn't happen this year due to Covid.

These are only a few of the windows on display, the reflections make it difficult to get good photos particularly when there are a lot of people viewing them. I keep forgetting to throw a CP filter in my bag. This was our first trip into Melbourne since the pandemic started.

We also visited both the Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens while we were there
