Early morning at Docklands

I recently went for an early morning stroll around Docklands, adding a few more pictures to the Vic Pics Gallery, but I was very surprised to come across a cow up a tree!  It turns out that the "Cow Up A Tree Sculpture" has actually been there for some time, right in...

Frankston Boat Ramp

During the Summer this is one of the busiest bay beaches to launch your boat, but right now (in the middle of Winter) things are a little different. When I stopped at Frankston beach yesterday there was no boat trailers juggling for position, just a few cars with...

Look Bike, Look Spex

Here's another example of Parked-Bike-Advertising that I first wrote about back in January.  Not that there's anything wrong with this concept, I love it because these two wheeled signs usually make great street photo subjects.  I also like that it's a little bit...

Future apartment development

After demolition some time ago, all that remains at 392 St Georges Road, Fitzroy North, is the street front façade wall.  There's some heavy duty bracing to stop it falling over, and deep excavation behind for future foundations (and underground parking?), but for now...

Frankston Pier

A couple of months ago I shared some photos here of the Frankston waterfront at the foot of Olivers Hill.  It was still Winter and there weren't many people around.  This week I was a little further up the beach at Frankston Pier, and the mouth of Kananook Creek. ...

Crazy Zebra Street Art

Melbourne's inner suburbs feature all sorts of street art, from crude graffiti to skilled art work, big and small, commissioned and free. This large piece of work in Collingwood, on the corner of Campbell and Johnston Streets, features Melbourne buildings and zebras. ...

Middle of the road

Street photography early on a Sunday morning, especially during the holiday season when there's not much traffic around, can allow you to literally photograph the street.  Standing in the middle of the road and pointing the camera down the white line, or tram tracks,...

Collingwood mural updated

Back in July we showed you this street art on the corner of Johnston and Campbell Streets in Collingwood, showing a mural of zebras and the Melbourne skyline (reportedly commissioned by Crazy Domains to promote the new dot-melbourne web address).  A few weeks later I...

Foggy EastLink

Park Road in Donvale gives you a great view as it crosses over the EastLink tollway.  The Park Road bridge is the last on the city side before the roadway enters the tunnels, and was the perfect spot for me to set up the camera for some long-exposure shots. I was...

Footscray by the river

These photos show the changing face of some of Melbourne's suburbs.  Looking down from the Footscray Road bridge, over the Maribrynong River, today we see recreational fishing, walking, jogging and many people on their bikes cycling along the river.  There are even...

Front fence croc in Fitzroy

Like most of Melbourne's inner suburbs, Fitzroy is a hot spot for street art.  Most of what you see painted on walls and fences is good quality art, as apposed to ugly graffiti. The front fence of this house on Alexander Parade certainly catches your eye thanks to the...

Richmond railway station is one of the major public transport hubs into or out of Melbourne, most east-bound trains pass through here, and it's also the closest station to the Melbourne Cricket Ground. After a major event at the MCG, such as the 84,000 crowd for the...

A little unusual, but pretty

Sometimes with street photography it pays to wander off the main road, down laneways or paths.  That's what I did in Fitzroy North and found this home with an unusual frontage.  There's a marine mural on the gate, random vertical timber surrounding the letterbox on...
