I really am enjoying going through my old photos and making videos with them. I had planned on doing another one on Melbourne, like a part 2 to the other one, however when I started going through my folders for 2016 I couldn’t believe how many photos there were. So now I have broken them up and will do different aspects of the city and today I thought I would dedicate the video to the bridges that cross over the Yarra River here in the City of Melbourne.
There are quite a few, but if you have the time you can start at one end and make your way along either side of the river until you see them all. I don’t really know how long it takes. I guess it depends on how much time you want to spend at each one and what you want to photograph.
The river runs east to west, or west to east depending on which way you want to go. If you go early in the morning you will either get the sunrise or the pink hues in the opposite direction. The same can be said for the sunset. It is a very convenient river in that respect.
I would like to say it is very safe down there, and I think for the most part that is true. There is only one spot that I have felt like I needed to get the hell out of there and that was on the north side of the river between the Evan Walker Bridge and the Sandringham bridge on the river’s edge. The time it happened for me was very early on a Sunday morning and I think there were a few too many people who were still drunk hanging around. Two guys followed me and then sat near where I was taking photos. I just packed up and walked away.
If you want to experience the bridges, then get yourself to Flinders Street Station and head to the river and Princes Bridge. Walk across it and at the end go to your right and walk down all the steps to the river. From there you can take photos under the bridge or walk to the west and start exploring all the bridges and what is along the river.
Here is my video of the bridges over the river. The video is sort of all the photos taken throughout the year 2016.
To you help identify each bridge I’m going to show one photo of each one with the name of it.
I did miss one bridge that is in the videos, which is Queens Bridge, but there is only one photo of it, so I’m sure you will work it out.
I hope you enjoy this video of all the photos of the bridges that cross over the Yarra River in Melbourne.
