Bourke St Mall – it’s early in the morning, decked out for Christmas
I lived close to Melbourne for ten years of my life, and although it isn’t my very favouritist place in the world as far as cities go, I quite like it (shhh don’t tell anyone) . Before we left for warmer climes in 2007 I took a few photos which I’d like to share with you. Some of them are just pretty, others illustrate that Melbourne doesn’t take itself too seriously all of the time. In fact, the city fathers have a sense of humour.
I’m sure the cityscape has changed a lot since I left, but some things don’t change, they just mellow over time.
Flinders St station and Federation Square. I doubt you’ll find a bigger contrast in styles so close together anywhere.

Those guys. Really.
The fountain in Carlton Gardens. They hold the garden shows there in early Autumn.
Outside the old post office, which is now a retail centre. Love that stone purse 🙂
