Absolutely wonderful pics. The composition of each one is top-notch! And Melbourne is such a vibrant and interesting place to photograph - so full of life and character.

@32Blocks, I'm wondering how you go about the shots of the people? Do you ever have trouble with people not wanting to be photographed? Or do they generally not even notice?

Sorry for the late response, I get caught up in work and lose track of time. Thanks for the compliment I occasionally ask people to take their pics but I have a zoom lens so most people aren't aware of it - that is the trick of Street Photography
