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 – 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 […]

The Changing Seasons – June

I took my new camera out today to take some photos for this month’s Changing Seasons series. This series was initiated in January by a fellow blogger, Cardinal Guzman from Oslo, and has people from all over the world participating. A few weeks ago we had a very chilly start to Winter, but this weekend was almost […]

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 […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – Blur

I decided on this particular shot as it gives me a chance to write a little about ‘White Night’ – now a huge attraction on Melbourne’s event calendar. Melbourne’s White Night was inspired by […]

The Changing Seasons – March

It’s Changing Seasons time again – where did that month go? This is challenge set by blogging friend Cardinal Guzman from Oslo to capture the changing seasons each month someone in your home town.  I’ve chosen to shoot around the Southbank/Federation Square/Flinder St Station precinct. There are links to the January and February posts at the bottom […]

The Changing Seasons – February

You may remember this time last month I posted a series of photographs taken around the Federation Square/Southbank/Flinders Street Station precinct of Melbourne in response to a challenge set by fellow blogger Cardinal Guzman from Oslo to capture the changing seasons each month throughout the year. Melbourne is still in the midst of summer although we’ve not […]

The Changing Seasons – January

One of my fellow bloggers Cardinal Guzman from Oslo, has decided to set us all a new photo challenge.  On the same day each month for a year we are to post between 5 and 20 new photos of a particular area of our city or town. The idea is to see how the area changes […]
