This Travelling Life will be a companion site to This Melbourne Life (sadly neglected for many months now), where I’ll post stories and photographs from my travels – starting next week. Over the next seven weeks I’ll be visiting Fiji, Paris, Iceland, Spain and Portugal. Check out This Travelling Life to […]

Bench Series – October

I’m contributing this photograph to Jude’s bench series which she has been hosting on her site Travel Words. There have been some fabulous  images posted throughout the year and I encourage you to check the site out for yourselves. This month Jude is looking for a bench with someone or something sitting on it. I included […]

The Changing Seasons – October

I missed September in The Changing Seasons series as I was away in Fiji. Unfortunately it was a pretty important month to miss as so much changed in Melbourne in those few short weeks. Before I left the plane trees outside my window and throughout the city were bare. When I returned they were covered with […]

The Changing Seasons – August

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 […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Beneath Your Feet

For this week’s theme of Beneath Your Feet I’ve selected a photo from my recent trip to Shanghai. I took this shot from the balcony of the Jing’an Temple. I wanted to capture the beautiful patterned paving stones of the courtyard beneath and waited for the couple to enter the frame to give the image an additional element […]

The Changing Seasons – July

This is my very late post for this month’s Changing Seasons series. Melbourne is in the depths of winter and has been very cold and wet. The plane trees that line many of the city’s streets are bare and show off our beautiful old buildings in a way that we don’t see for most of […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Symbol

I’m very late for this week’s photo challenge.  This is partly due to feeling pretty lousy with a bad cold for most of the week but also because I’ve struggled to think of something to publish. But trawling through my photos one more time looking for inspiration it suddenly became obvious. What better symbol of Melbourne […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Muse

What is my Muse when it comes to taking photographs? What subject do I turn to frequently, more inspired each time? These are the questions we’ve been asked to consider for this week’s photo challenge. For me it’s the streets of Melbourne. Whenever I’m looking for inspiration or I want to try a new technique with my […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Roy G. Biv

ROY G. BIV is the theme for this week’s challenge.  I’d never heard this term before – it’s an acronym to help people remember the seven colours of the rainbow – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. We’ve been given the choice of posting a single photo representing a rainbow, or seven photos depicting each […]

Melbourne streets

Today I went for a very long walk through Collingwood and Fitzroy and then into the city. These are some of the people I saw along the way.
