  13. Great post! I love #3 and #11. I visited Melbourne a few years ago, and it is absolutely beautiful. I really like the tracks on the beach and the two people in the third photo. And I remember going on Puffing Billy, so #11 holds some nostalgic moments for me as well.

  16. Great set of photos. As you can tell from my username I’m a fan of black and white photography. There’s a nice variety of subjects and the composition is good. My favourite is the first one.

  18. Wow. I really can’t even pick a favorite! 11 is SO timeless. It strikes me as a shot in the US from the 1940’s! 🙂 And 13 is fantastic… not just the subject, but the lines… WOW.

    Good work!

  27. Number 10 is the Forum Theatre. St Patricks is not in the middle of the city it is up on Eastern Hill.

    Comment by wally — January 15, 2011 @ 6:30 am | Reply

  28. Great photos. I was back in Melbourne over Christmas/New Year but didn’t get the camera out once.
    The Forum’s interior is as impressive as its interior. I hope you get a chance to see it.
    And you are so right about the roads. I live in Perth now, and even though I drove in Melbourne for only a few years before I moved across the country I am instantly at ease when I get behind the wheel in Melbourne. Also, Melbourne drivers are more switched-on and aware of what’s going on around them (tells you what I think about Perth drivers, doesn’t it?)

  66. Some great shots, some of them would work really well as groups of three. Personally I am an avid lover of Black and White, I find that it tells the story much better way then colour. You remove the distraction the colour creates and let the viewer see the picture as it is the shot has to be strong enough to keep you interested.

  108. Oh and someone asked about the Queensland Floods affecting Melbourne. The short answer is no.

    Queensland is very far away from Melbourne, so it would be impossible for the same flood waters to stretch here … but … since all of this part of the globe is having strange weather (El Nina, or climate change??) … there are some country areas in Victoria that are having “floods” when at this time of summer they’d usually have drought.

    It’s much less than Queensland though. The water isn’t as deep or strong – no houses or cars being carried away. No deaths yet, compared to Queensland’s 18 Dead, 14 Missing.
    (or compared to the 2,000 dead in the Pakistan floods)

  123. Some great photos. I love black and white photography. Never been as far south as Melbourne, but looks likes it’s worth a visit.

  124. Black and white are actually working better than colorful photos, I really get the moment and the pictures bring back all the memories I had in Melbourne. Keep up the good work 🙂
