Flying visit to Melbourne

I had the pleasure of visiting with a friend in Melbourne last weekend Saturday. I would’ve spent more time there had I not had to change my return flight to an earlier one in order to attend a birthday party. (And the funny story about that is that is that the Hub told me the start time for said party was 4pm, when in fact it was 2pm. It was a good thing I arrived with a bit of time to spare; although we didn’t realise it until a Facebook reminder or somesuch appeared on his device, at about half-one which threw yours truly into a panic!)

Party-panic aside, these are a few I snapped whilst in Melbourne. I enjoyed the change of scenery, and although it was cold, I didn’t struggle with it as much as I had done on previous visits (yes, I am a winter-wuss). And I was very thankful that it was a rain-free trip this time.

Because I had to head back to the airport on Sunday morning, and I was desperate to do more roaming-with-camera before doing so, I found myself on the streets at 6:30am, wondering if chilblains were developing on my nose and if frostbite had begun on my toes. That said, I think it was worth the cold, dark walk through the streets when everyone else was in bed, just for the tram shots, especially since they’re such of fixture of Melbourne.

  1. Beautiful set of photos. I love the layers of people in the restaurant, and the sihouette in the gallery especially.
