The Changing Seasons – December

This is my last post for the current Changing Seasons series. The series was established by blogging friend Cardinal Guzman from Oslo back in January and each month bloggers from all over the world have been posting shots of their home city. The idea of the series was to highlight the seasonal changes that occur in […]

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 – 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 – Door

Door is the theme for this week’s challenge. Easy! Well so I thought until I started trawling through my archives and discovered that I have so many photos of doors. So which do I post? I took this photo in AC/DC Lane on one of my recent city wanders – if you look closely you can […]

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.

I have a new camera

I’ve just bought myself a new camera – an Olympus OMD EM-5 II to be precise. It has so many more bells and whistles than any camera I’ve used before and is going to take me quite some time to learn how everything works. But after trying it out around the city today I’m already […]

The Changing Seasons – May

I finally managed to find time to get into the city very early this morning to take some shots for this month’s Changing Seasons series. This photo challenge, initiated by blogging friend Cardinal Guzman, is about photographing our city each month to illustrate how it changes over the year. You can view my previous posts here for […]

The Changing Seasons – April

The months are flying by so quickly. It’s already time for the April update of The Changing Seasons photo challenge. This challenge, initiated by blogging friend Cardinal Guzman, requires us take photos of a part of our city each month to illustrate the changes that take place over the year. To date I’ve taken shots […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Wall

‘Share an image of a Wall that reveals something about a place, people, or you’ is the photo challenge for this week. This photo was taken in Union Lane, which runs off the Bourke Street Mall right in the heart of the city. The mall is constantly abuzz with trams, shoppers, workers and tourists but just a […]
