Sunday:

The first few photos are from a new area of the Docklands called Waterfront City (most of it is out of view, under construction), and the section in front with the residential buildings is NewQuay.

10 years ago, everything in view, except for the skyline in the background, did not exist. The stadium might have been under construction, but everything else were just abandoned port and railway facilities made redundant when container ships arrived decades before.










Near the stadium (say hi to my shadow)






Docklands Park



Back to Waterfront City, the other side this time, where the tram line terminates with the Bolte Bridge nearby.





The second part, from Level 55 of Rialto Towers, will come later.

It's so hard to keep this thread from dropping off the front page here... anyay, apologies to those on slow connections.

This is the second half from the photos I took last week, taken in the space of about 45 minutes on the Rialto Tower observation deck.

Well, it's worth it! The Rialto deck views are always spectacular, but maybe well known to Melbourne forumers. I thought your posts on Docklands were the best angles from there I've ever seen. Terrific.

Keep them coming! Threads get bumped off the front page around these parts after about a day. Unless you start some sort of fight!

Hmm, in that case...

Apartments or McMansions?
Railways or freeways?
USA or Europe?
PS3 or Xbox360?
Mac or PC?
Religion.
Politics.
China.


More photos are nearly ready.

Still plenty of people around.





The new screen various people have been bitching about.


Public service announcement.


Public transport infrastructure...




Wintery.

Wow, Melbourne looks amazing.
Should I assume, like most cities, that all the human traffic in the city represented in those photos dies out after a certain hour (6pm or so)?

Melbourne looks outstanding. Resembles Toronto quite a bit.
