Melbourne Through My Lens
This book is a collection of images from my home town of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I am a 4th generation Melbournian and I love this city. These images are the results of many hundreds of kilometres of walking the streets looking for those perfect angles. Usually I would spend 5 to 6 hours walking, ending up with blisters most days, to find an angle that I liked. Then I would make a note of the location and which way the sun rose or set on the scene and come back when the light was right. Then I would arrive at the scene well ahead of the light I wanted, set up and wait patiently. But of course sometimes the shots just didn't work, for example a person might walk into the shot and decide to start watching the sunset just at the moment of pressing the shutter. Or I might wait all day to get a shot of Federation square, take the tram into the city only to find that there is construction set up in my scene. Such is the life of a landscape photographer.
