Every country you go you always find them around. It's just such a great design that has been lasting for over 40 years. I was here fully lost in the lanes of Bangkok.
This was a little lane in a Greek island where they dry the tomatoes for few days and in the jars with oil after that. Mouth-watering ..... another photo that is going in my new portfolio website, stay tuned!!
An interesting view from the top of Hardware Lane. It was around 5pm and the commuters were starting rushing back home
This may seem not Melbourne, but indeed it is one of the hidden lanes of Chinatown. Whenever in Melbourne CBD have a trip to this side of the city, awesome. Melbourne is full of colors, no question about it, however sometime I just can't see them. I can only see tones of grey, from black to white; am I becoming color →
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 →
I had this strange feeling on the top of this car park. I saw this storm approaching the multilevel building in the foreground but somehow avoiding the little lane, giving the respect it deserves. I love Melbourne lanes. Photos from above are all made from car parks around the city. I just ride my bike to the top and enjoy the →
I loved this lane and the interior bridge connecting the two buildings. I was riding to the city and I stopped, took out my camera and I made this photo. That bridge reminded me a bit of similar bridges connecting the building in Venice....so many holidays down there when I was a kid, I miss Venice.
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. 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.
I am not sure why, but when I think about Chinatown I always imagine it full of yellow taxi and with red lights all around. And here it is, all in this picture. It took me time to make this photo, but I believe well worth waiting for it.
I was walking in North Melbourne and I found this interesting reflection from two windows of an old house. I have added a black&white effect to the overall background.
I was riding my push bike in Collingwood and Fitzroy. This Melbourne area can be so grunge, in the good way of course. I feel like at home in this side of the city. So many nice pubs and restaurants, they are all so popular with the young crowd. This is the favourite corner of my evening ride.
I wonder if the owner of this place was actually colour blind or he just loved mixing colour.....either ways I believe he did a fantastic job. When I walked in this lane in North Melbourne my eyes were just captured by these fabulous pastel colours, all different but all similar, almost a live Photoshop job.
This lane is quite amazing. I stopped here for almost an hour I believe. I always find the graffiti in the CBD lanes over-amazing, however, because of the huge popularity, photographed from every single corner and in every single way. Said that, I'm still thinking to make some photos there as well, but from a sort of different prospective....we shall →
I consider this shot one of my best in Melbourne. Of course, it is all very subjective. What I may like a lot can be seen as just a normal photo. However, this lane is just typical of North Melbourne, an area with lots of history, or at least with lots of building and lanes as they used to be →
In one of my sunset walks I found this strange couple hiding in one little street in North Melbourne. Pretty an impressive size as well. Lovely subject. I thought it was just a perfect shot for MEL365. Does it seem like the two guys are walking and coming out from this lane? Really interesting.
United Artists of Melbourne, UAM, always working in the lanes to make this city more alive. This was shot actually in St.Kilda, in a lane I just found out, on the back of Gray Street.
Sorry mate, road closed!! Not for the street artists that use the wall as an open gallery in the city lanes. It all started in the CBD, but now the street art is invading all lanes outside the city centre, as it is the case for this shot. Keep up with the good work.
Always looking into little lanes, you can always find an inspiration. The rain that just stopped provided that mirror effect which made the shot quite interesting.
