I am proud to declare that I am now the proud owner of a digital SLR, a Canon EOS 350D to be precise! And I not only have the standard 18-55mm lens, but a fancy 70-300mm telephoto lens as well! :)

This was my first outing with the new camera - a quick stroll down Johnston Street, Fitzroy (and into Collingwood). This is the street that links all those "trendy" streets in Carlton and Fitzroy whilst itself not being that trendy. If you follow it far enough east, you will come to Studley Park, a bushland oasis in Melbourne's inner-eastern suburbia.

Hope you like my latest tour...

Enjoy! :cheers2:

Setting the scene: Looking west along Johnston Street. The tall cream brick building in the far distance is the University of Melbourne.




A real novelty - a terrace with a mansard roof!


Just like people, shop dummies come in all shapes and colours....


A new addition to the street:


The former Bull Ring Spanish dance club. Soon to be redeveloped into flats...


Some pubs:




The first pic I took with my telephoto lens.... East down Johnston Street


The distinctive Johnston Street pylons

Thanks Olderfleet. I love your suburban tours. I just love Melbourne's inner suburbs, so distinct from each other and so full of hidden treasures. It's one the subtleties that most people don't get about Melbourne.
