In the past few years we have visited many

well known places and some off the beaten track placess

all of which would fit this challenge.

However,  after some deliberation I decided to focus

on Melbourne, our state capital, and until the early 1900s

the site of our Federal Parliament.

Used to be known as ‘Fairy Penguins’ now renamed

‘Little Penguins’ at Melbourne Aquarium

Burke Street Mall busker.

 

Prince’s Bridge over the Yarra

We took a carriage ride around Victoria (Vancouver Island)

last year, still haven’t taken one around Melbourne.

After sailing from Geelong on a ferry trial,

late August 2018, this was the view as we arrived

at Melbourne and sailed up the Yarra River

and under West Gate Bridge.

For tennis fans.

Rod Laver Arena, in Melbourne Park,

home of the Australian Open since 1988…

and where we recently attended

Hugh Jackman’s Concert.

Melbourne Post Office

of a bygone era.

Melbourne Skyline from Williamstown Marina.

Couldn’t decide between BW or…

…or colour.

So decided to leave both in.

a  slightly over exposed Bourke St. Mall…

…in December a few years back.

  1. Your post brings back great memories of a wonderful city. Our son is traveling there in a few months. I can’t wait for him to experience the city. Your shots show the wide variety of places in the city. I especially like your b and w shots.
