The Calendar Files … 2018 … Melbourne Murals

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

Well, just to recap … now we’ve reached 2018 and we are in Melbourne!

This time I made two cal­en­dars. One is a col­lec­tion of mur­als from Mel­bourne shot by my daugh­ter. Mel­bourne, to me the most impress­ive city in Aus­tralia — besides Perth —  and a city world fam­ous for its cre­at­ive mood, its art and its … mur­als. The oth­er one is a col­lec­tion of frames from a trip around North­ern Spain, which will come next.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.

The Calendar Files … 2017 … Australia

Sunday, March 1st, 2020

Well, just to recap … we’ve now reached 2017 and we are in Aus­tralia this time!

A once in a life­time trip around South-West­ern Aus­tralia, Tas­mania and … finally Mel­bourne. We care­fully selec­ted our route to avoid the over­crowded east­ern part of this con­tin­ent. A full series of this trip can be seen on my tiny blog start­ing here.

But now, let’s start with the cal­en­dar files …

On the road again …

 

Flinders Street Sta­tion Mel­bourne, VIC
There is a story going, that the con­struc­tion parts of this rail­way sta­tion have been mixed up with the one from the Mum­bai Rail­way Sta­tion, built at the same time.

 

Look­ing onto the South­ern Ocean — next stop Antarctica

Australian Adventure — I’m done!

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

These were the last images I pos­ted in my Aus­trali­an Adven­ture series, star­ted long ago. They show two old clas­sic Volk­swa­gen in Fitzroy/Melbourne. It was our last day in Mel­bourne and Aus­tralia and so gives a good link to our next day flight back to Germany.

The com­plete series can be found here on my flickr page. The whole Aus­trali­an Adven­ture story star­ted in Novem­ber 2015, when I headed to a three weeks trip to the South East of West­ern Aus­tralia, the Tas­mani­an Island and … finally Mel­bourne. There were so many won­der­ful impres­sions, that I would not hes­it­ate to come back again … some day. It took me nearly 18 months to com­plete the review and post­pro­cessing of nearly 1000 images taken mostly with the work­horse Olym­pus OM‑D E‑M1 and its won­der­ful lens M.Zuiko 12–40mm PRO, sup­ple­men­ted by my iPhone 5s. 286 images found finally their way on my flickr page, some of them in col­our, some in black&white and some in both moods.

As writ­ten in the title, I’m done with the Aus­trali­an Adven­ture and I’m already head­ing towards the next series — North­ern Spain with the Basque Coun­try, Can­tab­ria, Asturi­as and Castile-Leon — where we trav­elled in spring 2016.

Australian Adventure — Murals

Friday, April 20th, 2018

This time — and I prom­ise this trip is near­ing its end — we strolled through the streets of Mel­bourne, hunt­ing for the fam­ous murals.

Mel­bourne is full of street art and in some areas you can­’t miss ’em — like here around Hosier Lane.

Australian Adventure — Melbourne Skyline

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

Our trip to the world’s end is near­ing it’s fin­ish­ing line.
This time I have a couple of long time expos­ure night shots from Mel­bourne’s south­bank over the Yarra River which show the full beauty of this fant­ast­ic sky­line. As you know my dilemma, boths worlds look stun­ning — black&white and coloured.

Australian Adventure — Classic Cars

Saturday, January 27th, 2018

Nice inter­me­di­ate … in Mel­bourne, when vis­it­ing the Queen Vic­tor­ia Mar­ket, we found a Clas­sic Car Show with loads of beau­ti­ful cars. As men­tioned before, I find col­our and black&white very pleasing.

This was a Cadillac Fleet­wood Series 75 Sedan (1960).

Here the phant­ast­ic colours …

… and here come the beau­ti­ful black&white.

Enjoy 😉

Australian Adventure IV — Melbourne

Friday, January 12th, 2018

Com­ing to the final part of our tip to tne world’s end, we now entered Mel­bourne, a fas­cin­at­ing big city — Aus­trali­a’s second largest. with nearly 10 times the size of Ber­lin (10000 km²:1000 km²) it hast around the same num­ber of people liv­ing there — approx. 4.5 mio.

This city is so col­our­ful and full of struc­tures and forms, so that I still struggle about the type of series to show. On the one side, you can make a full b&w series with all the forms and struc­tures and subtle tones and on the oth­er side you can show the rich col­ours of that city.

Lim­it­ing one­self to one or the oth­er would make the series more con­sist­ent — but would also not show the full pic­ture. Driv­en by this, I’ll show either the one or the oth­er or … both, as many views can be appeal­ing in both styles.

Enjoy 😉
