I am starting loving long exposure photos. Leave the camera 30 seconds or more to take the photo and suddenly the sea looks like milk and the sky seems still moving.
It is black and white, a bit of long exposure. I was not sure what could have been the end result to this shot. I quite like it at the end
I just love the clouds, you add the sea and a pier and the photo is half there. I like to give this foggy effect to the water with a long exposure time (30 secs). And B&W is my new photo partner, it gives such a nice final touch to some photos as this one.
It was windy, cloudy, it started raining as well. It was really a bad day but at the end I was able to have something nice out of it
I love this train rail going deep into the sea, used to move in/out the sailing boats from St.Kilda. A long exposure had to be
The grungy St.Kilda in the 70s
So many ways to make a photo of this beautiful bridge. The awesome architecture is here mirrored into the Yarra river
A black and white sunset on the city, a different view
I am starting liking more and more the black and white photos. And I am enjoying more and more the long exposure photos as well, it gives that sense of dreaming effect with water and clouds creating a fog effect. This is a new Melbourne project, the B&W View. Enjoy!
I quite liked this lane in Chinatown, with all this colorful signs. I actually took more than a photo, from different corners and different style. This one is probably my favorite one.
A new food exhibition will open in a week at the State Library. I have met the two painters and I am really looking forward to see their work. This is one of the reading room, another Melbourne secret, not really ahahah
So many books in the world to read...do you like more reading paper books or ebooks??
This Billabong gave me the feeling to almost be on the moon. I used b&w to emphasize it a bit more Lots of dead trees (which are probably not on the moon), I love the place from a photography prospective
Such a stylish difference between the foreground and the background here. Typical Art Deco architecture for the theater and the contemporary touch in the foreground. Black and white had to be.
Last picture of the B&W week comes from North Melbourne. It has been processed with a touch of Magenta, which gave a cool appearance to the full photo. Every time I walk in this area, I stop every few meters, always attracted by the many warehouses of this district, so working class, so nicely refurbished.
It's B&W week. Theatre, theatre, theatre....ahhhhh. This is something that we are lucky to have in Melbourne. Lot's of choice. One of my favourite? The Majesty's. Although I love the small ones, with a bit more of intimate character.
It's B&W week. When I ride my bicycle in Collingwood and Fitzroy, I have this feeling of grunge, so popular in Melbourne. I want definitely to spend more time on this side of the city and make more noir photos. This petrol station has so many interesting corners.
It's B&W week. This cathedral on the east side of Melbourne is really imposing. It must have been full only few days ago, on Saint Patrick Day, although probably the pubs were a bigger attraction on that day !!
It's B&W week. This is really the centre of the Melbourne CBD and Chinatown as well. We are in Little Bourke Street. I wanted to have once again a bicycle in the picture. I had mine with me, but the one on the side of the pole was just perfectly positioned.
It's B&W week. This is one of my favourite Town Hall in Melbourne. The building has a grand design, and more important it is located in a nice square, similar to a typical European city centre.
It's B&W week. Finally I was able to make some photos of this bridge. I always liked the lights around it, and the black and white format works just great here.
