I didn’t think I’d go into Melbourne’s city centre much since I moved to the western suburbs 6 months ago, but this week, (including today), it will be 3 times in the one week.
Not much time for photography yesterday, but walking down a back lane to the bus stop to go home, I came across the rear of a tall building which I’d only seen from the front before. This breezeway through the building to the main street fascinated me. The main feature that caught my eye was this extraordinary view of the lighting. It’s all in the angle of the shot of course. It looks like the lamps were all close together, but the distance is actually a whole city block.
My Street Photography has been rather dismal this week so far and I’ve deleted nearly every shot I made. Hopefully, I ‘ll see something more interesting to shoot this afternoon. I think that after the peace and quiet of living next to a nature reserve, where most of the outdoor noise is of birdsong, the crowds/noise and artificial lighting of the city centre is starting to lose its attraction. Perhaps it was the time of day – around lunchtime when the city offices seem to spew out hoards of office workers to swell the shopping crowd.
At least the weather has cooled down somewhat (as the first 3 weeks of Autumn have been unusually hot).
