Melbourne CBD is full of alleys cut through main streets. It is a real flavour of the city. Anything could be hidden there. Like I found these ladies of two generations walking pass and through the alley. Anyway, while I was snapping this laneway, there was an artist inspecting the location for Laneway Commission
The left is the first shot I took on the Melbourne trip last week. Yes, the first thing I spotted on the initial walk on Little Collins Street was a reflection of a building. And then the accompanied shot that has to go with it in order to make a pair. Illusion and reality, the best of both worlds.
It is a hot day in Cairns, Australia. Swimming pool by the beach is not only full of humans hanging around but also Silver gulls (Larus novaehollandiae) especially on the pool shade. The direct sun above is almost endurable as it casts the strong shadow on the fabric.
Each dawn has its own unique dramatic sequence. I feel blessed every time when morning ray shines on my face. This one is at Trinity Beach 20 km north from Cairns, Queensland.
The first post of 2006 has to be sunrise.
