I would like to present my home town Melbourne ...

These photos are collected from SSC from various sources - and I found them very worth sharing to others

Thanks for the great photos

I hope you enjoy the sights....

These photos are taken by talented TONY P and he had given me permission. He just so great in capturing the essence of this city life and its unique streetscapes.

Thanks dude - they are just awesome

These photos are showing the famous Melbourne laneways. These enchanting web of lane systems are right behind the sensible, ordered grid of city blocks - it is world apart and just waiting to be explored. They are intimate and each has its own story to tell and each is not shy about telling it. Some lanes have been reborn and now houses for quirky city life completed with cool and groovy boutiques and cafes. Others are still waiting to be discovered.

Enjoy
