Many people are aware about Angkor, formal capital of the Khmer empire, now in the north of Cambodia. An incredible place dated back to the 12th century. Angkor was one of the biggest cities in the world, mostly unknown to the western world. This Sanctuary, now close to the border between Thailand and Cambodia, is part of old Khmer empire. →
How inviting is this place to have an awesome dinner. Lots of character and an incredible view of the Bang Bao bay. Here you have the freshest fish you can imagine, right from the fisherman.
I found quite interesting the patterns of these books in the church, one of the few quite places in the CBD, nestled between high-rise buildings, a lovely place have a break
I love this mix of old and new architecture, it fits so nicely together. And what a place to live, just facing the beach, not what you would call city life
Next to the Prahran market, these gardens are just the perfect place to take a break from the shopping around Chapel Street
Myer is one of the icons of Melbourne, a big shopping center, right in the downtown. It's rebuilding, step by step. Somehow it remembers me one of the Roman construction in the middle of the European cities, the old and the new.
Let's start this week with a sunset view from across the Maribyrnong river; relax, another 4 days and it's weekend again
The Etihad Stadium is dominating the west side of the CBD, in Docklands.....so many cranes in the foreground, a real lively city.
They are working a lot in the CBD space that used to be Myers. The nice thing is that they will keep the exterior walls as they used to be, to keep history of the old Melbourne. No more 70s please
The unfinished work in Docklands. Does anybody know when is it going to be fixed? The published dates are back in 2011....
This is an interesting corner of North Melbourne, a really narrow warehouse building not anymore in use
Last week I published the first photo of a new area in the Melbourne CBD where they are rebuilding the Myers shopping centre. This is a closeup with the old, in the foreground, and the new Myers, in the background.
This is definitely one of the most outstanding island I have ever seen in my life. Well, it used to be an island many many years, centuries, ago. Tropea is such a lovely village
Another roof top shot, this time from a parking next to the Myers area. The old building on the front, the new one on the background. Really an interesting spot for few photos. Myers is quite possibly the most iconic Melbourne shopping center. It almost looks like a WW2 explosion!!
Another view of the thousands of books left in Federation Square during the Solstice night....but, hei, we are now already in Spring time, and today we can really feel it!!
I have been only once to this restaurant and it was like being in China. Both the lane, the entrance and the restaurant itself took me into a short trip to China. Black & white had to be
It may seem two photos but it is actually only one. It is quite amazing the different prospective you may have of the city from the top. There is such a mix of architecture around, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and more, all amalgamated in the CBD, sometime in full contrast, other times matching nicely.
It's rush hour, office time is over and the streets are getting busy with all the commuters. The massive BHP building is watching over. This is Russell Street, in the Melbourne CBD
I love this area of the Melbourne CBD. Chinatown is so full of colours, action, restaurants, people, and much much more Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city. I just ride my bike to the top and enjoy the view, making photos here and there to the interesting landscapes. I call it an unusual view of →
Chinatown photos are always full of the red color. This corner is a bit unusual, a little lane with plenty of colors and signs, I love the smiley face, well done to this old precinct Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city.

Again in the city high rise parking exploration. I was on a 7th and top floor of a car park in the city and I loved this conflicting view of the corporate and old style, grungy buildings. Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city. I just ride my bike to the top and enjoy the view, →
Little Collins is a small side street which becomes more interesting once it gets closer to Parliament, mainly in the area of Russell Street. Some nice cafes over there!! Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city. I just ride my bike to the top and enjoy the view, making photos here and there to the interesting landscapes. I →
Again in my Melbourne car parks exploration I noticed this unusual view of the Collins 35 buildings. They were looking like two brothers talking and imposing over the west part of the city Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city. I just ride my bike to the top and enjoy the view, making photos here and →
It was around 5:30pm and most of the lights in the office building were on. It reminded me an office hive where everybody contribute to the company profit. It is just our nature Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city. I just ride my bike to the top and enjoy the view, making photos here and →
