We’re a week back from our week away in Melbourne, and I’m still in a post-holiday-funk…
you see, i’ve fallen in love melbourne
The coffee, the food, the culture, the people, the bustle – so much to see and do… your senses are engaged constantly, but it’s in a civilised, relaxed sort-of-way.
I really struggled with taking photos this trip. The trip was a finishing-high-school-celebration for both Daughter and the family. It’s been a big year and we all needed a breakaway, but I felt to take photos would have been to absent myself from the holiday.
But when a photo presents itself wherever you turn – a face that holds a story, the lines in the architecture, the movement of the street…
and because I’m not that confident with street photography
I was seriously afraid that someone was going to come and yell at me about taking their photo!
So these are my favourite images from our week. The ones that I was confident in taking, and the ones that stretched my boundaries just enough to be uncomfortable…
PS. I’ve added commentary to each of the images because each of them is special for a different reason… Please feel free to add your own comments below.
Although I could see myself moving to Melbourne, I honestly think that this is my get-away city… for when I need a break from my little town, a dose of culture and bloody good food.
a counter balance to the quiet
Any recommendations of great cafes or places to visit in Melbourne will be duly noted and followed through upon.
