Great pictures!! Is that cubist building in the middle of the series (about 13 pictures from the beginning) an Art Gallery? Soon Spring will arrive!


You can never go wrong with a Canon camera, but they are a bit expensive. I am extremely happy with my Pentax K10. If you have a very good
professional camera shop in Melbourne, have a look at their second hand or reconditioned cameras. Professionals are forever trading up and you can
get a good deal.

Beautiful city.

But a question: Etihad Stadium? Etihad is a UAE airline. Any idea why they would sponsor a stadium in so far away a land? Even if they have flights to Melbourne, it can't be a huge source of the company's business, can it? Or is it a different Etihad?

I guess I've just never seen that before. I would expect a Qantas Stadium or something...

Etihad bought the rights to the stadium this year when it launched services to Australia. It is good PR as that Stadium is well used and is the home of the top of the ladder AFL team the Saints. Considering the media coverage AFL gets in the southern states...it's a good investment.

It has been like that for over 10 years now. It is a major eyesore. It's random that they didn't finish that tower...it looks like it wants a cupola. I think the problem is that to retrofit the space to modern needs would cost a fortune.

Fingers crossed something happens with it.

That's federation square and it's a multipurpose complex as it has a gallery, a cinema, a tv channel, restaurants and some shops

About my camera i do agree that canon is good overall, however i was very disappointed by the low/bad quality of night photos. That's why i am planning to buy next a panasonic lumix DMC-ZS3 / TZ7 Digital Camera, do you know if it's any good? i only based my decision on reviews

Gorgeous city but blemished by those cobwebs.
