The night lights of the CBD give an awesome touch to the photo. Docklands is the new central area, so many new buildings are coming up. It may lack a bit of character at the moment however I am sure it will change in the next 5-10 years. The Etihad Stadium and the Channel 7 building are some of the →
This area of Melbourne is lovely from an architecture prospective, there are so many nice bridges, buildings (new and old), waterfront and much more.
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.
Another interesting and modern bridge that connects the two new sides of the city, Docklands and South Wharf
Once the sunset is finished you still have few minutes of interesting light. I used that for this Port Melbourne little pier.
Riding my bicycle here and there in the night I saw this interesting Yarra view of South Bank. It's a pity that this area is pretty empty, but new bars are getting opened, so there is hope to see more action soon.
I believe that the spire of the Arts Centre is becoming really one of Melbourne icons. It is a relatively new building, however it is such a great architecture masterpiece. Well done to the people that believed in it in the 80s.
After a bit of research I found out the name, Seafarers, and the architects, Grimshaw based in London. I really find the bridge design perfect for this location, a real great work of architecture. I was lucky with the cloudy night, it gave actually a touch of London to it.......I posted few weeks ago a black and white version....which one →
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.
Fantastic background color for this photo. When I saw this fountain I had to stop and make a shot, it could not be missed, with a cyclist silhouette in the foreground of course.
Lots of lines crossing each other in this photo. I was captured by the Crown lights, together with the Melbourne Exhibition Centre arcades and finally the Southbank building in the background. All together a big geometry minestrone
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. 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.
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 love the city by night, and the river side has so many locations for a nice shot. I parked my bike and I had just a long walk.
The Majesty's Theatre in the night is just so vintage. I stopped there to make a photo and I started straight away thinking about the old style I should give to this photo. How do I like the end result? Very 70s...
This interesting structure replaced the old MTC in 2009. I really enjoy the lines of these cubes all around the building; they for sure stand out in the back streets of Southbank and they are a great photographic inspiration. Do I like it more than the old one? Being a vintage lover, I still prefer the old one. I will →
How nice is this bridge in Docklands? It's a bike and pedestrian bridge that connects the two sides of the Yarra river, the last one in the Melbourne centre area. Does anybody know the name of the designer? I would like to follow him on other works he/she has done.
It was a fantastic night, and this is the last photo I was able to make at the firework event. I have already posted two of them, on 28th of January and on 3rd of February. Let me know which one you like more ;-)
This photo got posted twice on Visit Melbourne Facebook site, the first time directly by me, the second time by the Visit Melbourne Web Admin. All in all it has received a surprising feedback, with over 200 "likes" and many comments. Somehow it never got posted on MEL365.com , so it's arrived the time for it. Don't miss Monday post, →
Oh yes, Australia day is Australia Day, one of my favourite day in Australia, right in the middle of the summer, usually a warm day to spend at the beach, as it was in my case, windsurfing the all day. I was quite tired in the evening, but I really did not want to miss the fireworks in the city. →
I am really starting loving night photography and I think I am going to spend more time on this part of day. The Docklands Waterfront City is a fantastic and appealing subject of course. It's just a pity that the big wheel is still not completed and no real plan to finish it as well. That would be outstanding and →
I am riding my bike on this bridge almost every day and I do see sometime people take picture, both recreational and professional photographer. I have asked myself what could have been a different corner to make a photo. I found the opposite bridge as a good place to have an unusual view, with the Docklands buildings on the background.
Bourke Street, the main mall area in Melbourne, is closing down the Xmas shopping. These are the last days with all the Xmas lights and you can see on the right side still Zara and Myer trying to catch the last buyer. But the streets are now empty.....waiting for the next....sales season!!
