I need to explore the garden more deeply. I reckon there are so many opportunities for some good photos. Any corner you want to suggest?
The view of the city from the Shrine of Remembrance is quite remarkable. Being next to the Botanical Garden, it should be in the to-do list. Beside the touristic side, the shrine is an important monument to all the Australians that have served in war.
This is the view from a restaurant on the Station Pier, Port Melbourne. It is just awesome with the sunset light. The shape of the restaurant building recalls a futuristic shuttle. All in all a must see place for any photo walk or, simply, a sunset walk.
The visit to this Khmer temple, Prasat Hin Muang Tum, was one of the most unusual experience of my life. First of all it was hard to find (no real maps) but the "exciting" bit was the place itself. Located right on the line between Cambodia and Thailand, claimed by both countries, with both armies there with guns and more. →
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. →
Today I am having a bit of fun in post-production. I wanted to give a touch of old 18th century to this photo. Ayutthaya was founded in the 14th century and you can easily walk from an historical site to the next one.
Once formal capital of Siam and Thailand, Ayutthaya has lots of history, so much you could spend a week in this sleepy city. This is the famous Buddha Head, blocked between the roots of a tree at the Wat Mahathat. Ayutthaya is a short trip, about 1 hour, from Bangkok.
This is the last of a photo series I was able to make during the new ads of Telstra, right in the CBD. They closed part of a big street (La Trobe Street) and they placed beds everywhere. Interesting to watch the making along the day too.
It looks like a space shuttle that just landed in the water to me!! This is a strange and interesting corner view of the Waterfront restaurant in Port Melbourne. This area offers plenty of sites to take a photo. You can easily walk from one corner to the next and, if weather is good, you can spend two hours with →
Melbourne Daily Photo – Crazy traffic in Melbourne & How to open a website with less than $2 a month
When I planned to open this website I started investigating the best, cheapest and easiest way to open and host a photo blog. I try here to share my experience and I hope it will help somebody making this easy step. Without much programming experience I really wanted to focus more on the content side than on the engine behind →
This is a new hotel that is opening in CBD. It is a new concept of pop-up social hotel. It may be quite cheap, although you need to consider the weather, quite unpredictable in Melbourne.
Some amazing colours in Bailan Bay (Koh Chang/Thailand), from a restaurant over a little harbour. They are selling this resort....thinking thinking thinking...not a bad life, at least in the dry season :D
Back from a photo (and vacation :) trip that took me to two countries in Asia. The first one, with as many tourist in 1 year as in St.Kilda in 1 day, fully undervalued and highly suggested. The second one, very touristic. I will be posting few shots in the next few days meantime I will ride my bike through →
It has been advertised as the biggest wheel in the southern hemisphere. It run for few days, around 3 years ago, and no more action since. A nice subject for few photos
It was just the right time to start a new creativity channel...Instagram..I know nothing new....but I am in Sydney for 4 days and I thought about forcing myself to make photos uniquely with my mobile and Instagram just comes as consequence. I left my camera in Melbourne.....and let's see what comes out. It will be interesting ...more to come in →
It is almost a Melbourne icon, this boat colored red and white will stay in my memory forever. I love hearing his roaring around 9pm when it leaves Port Melbourne direction Tasmania. This is the only interstate ferry and it reminds me so much of my Greek holidays.
It will be a great place to visit once they finish it. Not to be missed.
This is the Heavenly Queen Temple, still working in progress along the Maribyrnong River. Lovely at sunset time
The St.Kilda Luna Park is full of photo spots to spend easily an afternoon ....and a night as well
Another interesting corner of one of the most famous bridges in Melbourne
I loved the view from this parking area, empty as ever
The Luna Park is one of my favorite spots for some action photos. It's just a pity you cannot use the tripod....not sure why
Lovely corner for a moment of relax along my photo walk
Part of my Mornington Peninsula exploration was in the old fort, built in WWI to monitor the entry point to the bay of Melbourne. All still as it used to be, great place in the summer, a bit cold in the winter
