  1. Great shot of Flinders Street Station from above. What would the bureaucrats say about your irreverent shot of the ‘Australian research and collections’ though? 🙂 Liked the other shots too, including the water colours photo. Cheers, Stephen.

    • Hi Stephen, Thank you so much. Had a great vantage point from my hotel. Such a beautiful cityscape- I had fun shooting it. Melbourne is full of great moments and the museum was a favorite. Glad you like the irreverent and ironic “collections” shot. 🙂

  2. Love this – really gotta get down there! 😉

  3. Very nice picture — Contemplation. Was it just fortunate circumstance with the person viewing the art work? The color of his clothes, the pattern of the suspenders, the wood floor…. everything works together beautifully.

  4. Love love love that watercolor! Missing you …. And envious of your journey! Linda

  5. great eye….love these…you’re having way tooooo much fun…get back here!!! miss u!!

  6. Lots of colorful pictures for this city. The nightfall skyline is very pretty.

  7. Very stunning captures, especially the nightfall skyline.

  8. Jane, each one is stunning. Love the colors and your sharp creative eye! I may not comment on your blogs but you can bet I am enjoying Australia as much as you are!

  9. Oh, and I hope you’re enjoying the weather. 43 degrees C today? Welcome to the sunburnt country. 🙂

    • Hi LD- I tried to reply to you from the car on our drive to Victor Harbor but no service… we beat that– it got to 46C on the car thermometer! I do hope it cools on the coast. Now we’re definitely experiencing a sunburnt country… from indoors.

  10. Nightfall, Street Art and Watercolors are my personal favs. Stunning set!

  11. Excellent photo set and perfect with the quotes.
    Stefan

  12. Thank you for sharing this, Jane! This is probably the closest I’ll get to Melbourne 🙂 I love the streetart and nightfall 🙂

    • Hi Paula, Thank you and I’m glad you enjoyed a small slice of city life… I took a wonderful street art tour which I will post soon. Incredible art work and a big part of the Melbourne experience.

  13. Such an array of color!

  14. Now are you a Sydney person or a Melbourne person Jane? You have captured the feeling of Melbourne. I can never make my mind up which I would live in if I had to choose. I think at the moment I will stay with GC

    • Hi Pauline, Hmmm, don’t think I will take the bait on that one as I have friends in both places. Honestly, each city has much to offer and we have loved spending time in both. And, you live in a fabulous area, too. How’s that for diplomacy? 🙂 I am glad you enjoyed this set of Melbourne shots– full of colors and interest as I walked around. Thanks so much!

  15. As always, both beautiful and inspiring. Love your work, Jane.

  16. Jane, I haven’t had the opportunity to visit Melbourne, and until I do, I’ll happily settle for your beautiful photographs. Stunning shots. Love them all!

  17. Wow!!!!! Love the Contemplation! But all are wonderful.

  18. Beautiful as always. I especially like the night scenes especially of the city full of lights. 🙂

  19. Beautiful Jane – I especially liked the first and last!

  20. Jane. These are Awesome! Especially love Watercolors.

  21. Beautiful beautiful beautiful……

    Love ya, Helen
