Despite the mid-winter chill in Melbourne yesterday, I made time for a very quick walk ‘around the block’ (after finishing my errands).
The sun came out and in some areas made strong contrast for Black & White photo opportunities. I tend to photograph the same areas each time I go in to the city these days because……quite simply……. that’s what I have the energy for. Hopefully Spring and low wind conditions will make it worth venturing further afield, but for the time being, the inner city buildings makes a good job of cutting the wind chill factor and keeping me warm.
I certainly admire the Buskers and Street Musicians who sit and/or stand for hours on end in the cold (hoping for an audience and a few gold coins in their upturned hats on the ground). Audiences are few and far between on a cold day.
I have never seen the city of Melbourne so crowded as it was last Sunday. Seems like the whole of Melbourne converged on the main shopping precinct and inner city lane ways. Bright sun and dark shadows made for some great B & W photo opportunities. Shame I was in a hurry and had to make do with just a few quick shots.
