The city of Melbourne is one of my favourite places to photograph. Though I am always trying to find new ways to do it, sometimes, I just you just have to go with it and see what I can get. I am understanding more and more what I want to do with my work, what I want to show.

A couple of weeks ago I showed an image and did a little talk on it, and I want to continue doing that when I can, so today I have another image for you. It was taken about two weeks ago. A friend and I thought we would try a new spot for us to do some light trails over the Eastern Freeway going into the city. We weren’t sure if we would see the sunset there, but it seemed like a good spot regardless.

It is ANZAC day here, our memorial day, I guess you would say. It is the anniversary of one of Australia’s biggest battles in the first world war. It was started for that battle, but also a day to remember all the men and women who lost their lives during all the wars we’ve been involved in.

I thought it would be okay to give you a brief update today.

This is a fairly new thing for Melbourne, but every year in February we have White Night. The city centre is closed to traffic, all of it, even trams, for the whole night and the buildings are lit up with amazing light shows. There are installations everywhere as well. They go on all night and there are people everywhere. It is a popular event.

Instagram Apologies

Many of you have said how much you have enjoyed the Instagram posts and I’ve enjoyed writing them, but unfortunately this week has got away from me. I haven’t had time to write the next part. So I am begging for forgiveness and promise I will have it next week.

My first post like this for the year and while I don’t have a lot to say, I want to get back into the habit of blogging. So this won’t be a long post.

Website

I’m sure many of you have noticed that I now have a new theme on my website. There are still problems with it, but I haven’t really had the time yet to sit down and really work it all out. I am hoping that things will start to calm down soon and get back to normal.

So new theme and lots of teething issues, I have to say if some of the things don’t start working soon I am thinking of giving the theme a one star out of 5. Support would be good and part of the reason for paying for the theme was to get that. They aren’t very good with all of that. I do want to get it sorted as I quite like the theme.

A very quick look this week. I have to get ready to head into the city, it is my daughters graduation and I suppose as a parent I need to go to it. She is very excited. It is also a little sad as it means the end of her childhood, so to speak. Time for her to head out into the wide world. Find her place in it and all that.

I’ve had a trip away and a couple of the photos have been from that. I’ve also got the image that I had in Monochrome Madness last week, but this is the colour version.  I hope you don’t mind, but thought I would show the silos again as well.
