Day 157
This is the High Commission of Papua New Guinea, its architecture inspired by their traditional longhouses. The large, triangular front facia is beautifully painted mask-type faces in the colours shown and the roof is small wooden shingles. The huge, triangular flag pole of Parliament House is in the background - it can be seen from many points around Canberra. 8 km cycle

Makes me homesick for the Pacific. You've really caught the style of the architecture with those simple lines. I can't see them giving planning permission for a similar building in central London.

Is the Fiji Embassy near you? Perhaps it's in the shape of a chiefly bure.
Nice drawing.

PS I've discovered Picaso or Picasa or whatever it's called. It can do a few tricks with photos and pics but not as much as Photoedit.
