I’m flattered John, but I bet you beat me hands down on Australian History 🙂
History you can learn. Having an ‘eye’ is a gift.
I sympathise with your light problems
Thanks Derrick. i only wish I’d had a good camera when I lived over your side of the world. The light was so soft.
I don’t know much about photography (as anyone looking through my photograph collection would quickly learn), but I did like seeing some interesting and nicely taken shots of Melbourne.
Thank you Bun.
We feel really sorry about your light problems, Vicki. And I understand your feelings about blogging very well, my thoughts go in the same direction, especially now when we have summer in England and ost of work in the garden. I find the articles in Digital Photography School very helpful as well. Thank you for sharing your wonderful impressions of Melbourne.
Dina & co xo
Thanks Dina. I never appreciated the highs & lows of good light until I took up Photography as a (full-time) hobby. I hope you didn’t get the storms affecting your garden as I read on another English Blog.
Yes it does seem to be a nice light. I love those grand old buildings snuggled up amongst the new.
I think everybody who has been blogging for a while ask this question. I think we should keep doing if we enjoying it. It doesn’t matter how often, really. I certainly enjoy your street shots. And once again you have captured the atmosphere of Melbourne in a quiet and beautiful way. 🙂
Thanks for your comment Otto.
I’ve certainly cut down my blogging since moving apartments 16 months ago, but maybe that’s partly due to being more housebound and less able to make those lovely long walks I did in previous years. Or simply………a case of having explored most locations accessible via public transport many times over in the last 5-6 years and yearning for some new subject matter 🙂
You’ve captured some beautiful light and wonderful city shots. Melbourne is a favorite city- I lived in Sydney for a few months have been to Melbourne a couple of times. Wonderful. I understand your feelings about blogging…
Thanks for your comments, Jane.
I think Melbourne is far more ‘green’ than Sydney, but then I’m biased – I live here 🙂
Your photos are beautiful. I had a blog before this current one, but I deleted it because I felt like I had to write everyday to get an audience and I thought it sucked.lol People liked it, but I didnt after awhile. I say that to say this; I would write about whatever I felt and love, and the audience will come after. Theres always someone wholl appreciate your work or thought process.
My apologies for the rant..
Thanks for your comment, Vinny.
I think we all like an ‘audience’ and yes, I used to blog every day years ago. In fact I did so much photography that I used to post at least 3 times in one day, but now I realise how tedious it is to read blogs of people who post so often, so now I only use this particular blog occasionally. My Nature blog I post more often as it’s my main interest.
I blog to share my photos online, not because I like blogging per se. I’d rather go for a walk in Nature, than spend half the day on the computer.
I agree with your sentiments.
Yes! Ive reached that conclusion too. People get overwhelmed when I post too frrequently.
Thanks for responding. Ill check out your other blog too.
Ha light ……. it can be very harsh here in Oman, especially in the summer months: early mornings are the thing, which is why most of my photos have very few people, as only Englishmen & mad dogs go out in the midday sun 🙂 and I don’t think I pass for mad.
Come to think about it, I am not sure about that last statement 😎
Your posts here are always worth waiting for & like now, I pop in once in a while and so don’t notice your gaps.
You’re probably right, David. I don’t notice the bloggers who post rarely, only the ones who post too much (and I haven’t the time to view them all 🙂 ).
I really like your shots, specially the visual interaction between the buildings and the branches of the trees. Well seen, well done!
Thank You Robert.
