With fading available light I had to peer

into my camera to see if the long exposure

flattened the water surrounding

Point Lonsdale Pier.

 

 

Saint Kilda Pier…

 

…Melbourne

 

Geelong’s…

Cunningham Pier…

A gesture of friendship?  I think not!

Especially as her parents were

asking her to stop so

I could get my shot.

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.

More than five objects or people in a photo.

Watching a sunrise.

Just had to have a chuckle.

Restaurant lights

Sadly these trees no longer are.

Not sure if they have been replaced by eucalyptus trees

Tourists helping each other…or resting.

While other line up for entry to,

or photograph, the next attraction.

One of my favourites this time of year.

Erlicheer daffodils…an early sign of spring.

People…

…who need people…

If  only the iPad operators, in our group

stood this far back from the crowd,

instead of in front.

Will always remember these

two young ladies from Amsterdam.

After asking would they mind posing,

the girl on the left hit me for 5 Euro,

and kept straight face long enough

for mine to express the shock I felt,

before she burst out  laughing.

The villains 🙂

 

Mostly we have met…

 

 

or seen people helping others…

…in various ways.

Is the photographer helping

her model or vice versa?

The ‘shoot’ was for a tertiary

photography course.

Maybe they were studying

the same course.
