Wandering around Melbourne’s Hosier Lane

one can easily get lost admiring

some of the larger works of art on display.

There is everything from colourful graffiti, to…

 

…more traditional forms of art.

~~~~

This piece, a marriage proposal,

is my favourite from

my 2019 visit.

No matter where you stand to view this piece…

 

 

…viewers are always followed

by the camera lens…

…the camera has followed me right

up to the opposite end.

Very clever.

~~~~~~

 

So, while these can attract one’s eye

it is easy to miss other

not so noticeable gems.

In photography we often talk

of frames within frames.

However, I call this image art within art.

Did you notice?

I didn’t!

 

The ladies handbag is solid concrete

and not a left behind piece of

someone’s wardrobe.

 

The smallish colourful pile

of plasticine like material.

It’s just right of the upper, left window sill.

A closer look.

 

My final discovery was these stencils

also high on the walls.

I was told that these stencils are painted

when no-one else is around.

Not sure if that is fact or fiction.

Melbourne’s

Werribee Open Range Zoo

overnight camps

Geelong Ferris Wheel

Perhaps not the regular idea of

a commercial building.

At the end of Cunningham Pier

is now a night club and restaurant.

A few years ago…

…the Camera Club to which I belong…

…decided on a field trip to explore and photograph…

 

…Melbourne’s lanes…

…of which there are many.

The

Block Arcade

was also on our list of places to visit.

Misery Creek Bridge.

 A Few years ago a falling tree bought more misery

to what remained of Misery Creek Bridge.

 

 

Sydney’s…

…Harbour Bridge.

 

 

In Botswana we came across

new bridge sporting this sign…

 

We walked slowly across this bridge only stopping

to admire the old bridge just visible on the left.

Chapel Bridge, Lucerne.

 

 

Sunrise under Melbourne’s

West Gate Bridge.

Evan Walker Pedestrian Bridge

over

Melbourne’s Yarra River

Finally, a bridge to nowhere.

Fruit.

One of the crop from our first peach tree harvest

All sorts of fruit…

…at the Arras (France)

Saturday market.

Oranges packed for sale

in Melbourne.

Home  grown lemons and…

 

…and our first crop of cherries..

…from our miniature cherry tree.

We often hear of time machines which

are designed to transport us back

or forward in time. 

These machines only exist in our minds,

novels and movies such as the

Back to the Future series.

Yet all round are…

…time measuring machines

Big ones on Bell Towers…

…much smaller versions to hag on a kitchen wall…

…and finally, Melbourne’s famous landmark

The Flinders Street Station clocks.

Let’s meet under the clocks

was an oft used phrase of

Melbournians and visitors alike.

A few decades ago the analogue clock faces

were going to be replaced by their digital cousins.

This caused much discontent in Melbourne

that a compromise was reached.

These analog faces are now digitally powered.

Too cold for a photography outing this weekend

so I have had a look at some images

which contain people to see what I could find. 

Not sure if I noticed the couple before

or after I took the shot, however…

…from the wide angle comes a nice photo of a couple.

This photo…

…and this one…


…blended to create this image posted in

‘Capture the Moment’

for last week’s

Friendly Friday 

Similarly at Melbourne’s

Saint KIlda Pier…

…the wide angle shot cropped to focus

on the model and photographer. 

Both model and photographer were participating

in this shoot to fulfil requirements

of a course they were taking.

 

Are these two an ‘item‘?

Maybe…in this crop…

…and maybe not, the more space

they have around them.

From this crowded scene comes many stories.

One of which could be: 

The shark was this big, dead set!’

This game of badminton and its two spectators

was found….

…right here on Sydney’s

Manly Beach
