There was a hint of the Spring warmth to come last weekend when the temperature reached 17 degrees. Unfortunately today is back to being cold, damp and grey. This has been our chilliest winter for 17 years and I am definitely over it. Bring on Spring!
Despite the bad weather, I’ve managed to get out and take lots of photos for this month’s Changing Seasons series, including at a night photography class where I learnt how to use many of the settings on my new camera. I’m now feeling much more confident to permanently switch over to manual.
I’m posting some shots from the class which were taken around the Federation Square/Yarra River precinct I’ve featured each month. The remainder were taken around the city over the past few weeks, including at a marriage equality rally held at the State Library on the weekend. Same-sex marriage is a huge issue in Australia at the moment. We have a very conservative Prime Minister who is doing everything he can to prevent change, despite the polls indicating that 69 per cent of Australians support same-sex marriage. Hopefully the groundswell of public opinion and a looming election will see fairness and common sense prevail.
It’s time to get off my soapbox now. Here are this month’s photographs.
