Photo Walk: Melbourne CBD

After a day of travelling I arrived in Melbourne before K so I ventured into the city for a bite to eat. K doesn’t like Asian food so I made my way to Chinatown to get my Asian fix before she arrived.

I’m of the opinion that you don’t need fancy surroundings to have quality food, so when I saw this bustling Vietnamese restaurant it called to me. I had the sliced beef pho and it was spectacular – just the thing I needed after narrowly dodging a downpour after I hopped off the tram.

To avoid the rain I window shopped my way around Melbourne Central and after a couple of hours made my way home via Flinders Street, snapping a shot of the beautifully lit station on the way.

The next morning K and I walked from Southbank to the National Gallery of Victoria to see the Monet’s Gardens exhibition. I find it really interesting how many beautiful everyday things are everywhere, but no one sees them.

Sometimes all it takes is a different perspective or some time to observe. Looking up opens up a whole new world. I love capturing the architectural details on buildings, and Melbourne has a wealth of them.
