After so many years of talks about it, finally the skate park is open for action. Great area, just meters from the sea. The sunset here is amazing, a great spot for few photos.
Sunday the 17th of March starts the F1 championship and Melbourne is hosting the first race. Good luck to Mark Webber
It is coming, not too far away. The Formula One circuit is almost ready for the 2013 race. It is a love or hate event. Locals and Greens are not too happy about it. I am personally not able to ride my bike through it, although there are alternatives of course. For sure Melbourne city will be on the TV →
I waited a bit, I really wanted to take a photo of the Port Melbourne sailing club on sunset, but another storm was approaching. Always take a camera plastic cover !! Lesson learnt
Old time effect to this photo...early morning activity, back in the '800
The Etihad Stadium is dominating the west side of the CBD, in Docklands.....so many cranes in the foreground, a real lively city.
Should I start fishing....it really looks like it is getting more and more popular in Melbourne
It is spring and during the week this sailing club has so many boats in the harbour, resting before the big race on Saturday, another St.Kilda sport event not to be missed
It was a cold day but the fisherman was there, at the bottom end of the pier. I went to the fish shop, easier !!
During the football world cup all the lanes of this little village were covered by Italian flags, I loved the impact. Italians are very patriotic.....when football is on
This is the latest stadium of Melbourne, very futuristic. I love the contrast between the stair lines and the "eggs"
Who said that fishing is not an action sport? You just need a long exposure haahha
My partner deserved a noir photo, a black and white photo that reminds me a bit of the romantic France, not sure why because I am actually in Middle Park.
Riding, riding and riding.....what a passion...I thought this time I could give a bit of space to my partner in this Yarra sunset
It's not too far away from Melbourne, maybe one hour drive, and it is hard to find it....but well worth it, fantastic place for a bush walk
I was back in Melbourne Streets and, of course, one of the most interesting subjects is the people around. My attention was grabbed by this guy which was going back and forward with the skateboard and the hoodie. It seemed he did not mix at all with the crowd around.
.....I have seen this old push bike. It remembered me a lot of the bike my old grand father gave me as a gift and I left somewhere in Rome, now of course gone. I wish I had it here, sigh
6pm on a working day.....this is the time when the shops start shutting down, the offices start closing and the cars start queuing up on the way to home....get a bike if you can and enjoy the freedom party...
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.
The horse shadow over my bike. I always thought that the bike is a city reincarnation of the horse, powered by human legs. This photo is just what I was looking for. Same statement, just visual. Again, the shot was made with a mobile not far away from Melbourne
Horse were left outside the pub in the far west......bikes are parked outside the cafe' in Melbourne ....love it
True, the player could have been everywhere, but believe you me, it was in Terra Australis. It's Sunday, it's play time!! Just an unusual photo in this blog, something different.
Lovely swimming pool in Sydney, a Bondi beach icon. What a better place to have a shower!!
I love this park, I already mentioned that in a previous post. These secular trees are just amazing and the sun shining through the branches adds a bit of fairy tale, isn't it?
