Monochrome Melbourne

A walk around the city on a hot summer’s day, watching the lunch crowds and traders along the small laneways off Flinders Lane and finishing off the walk with a few songs from the buskers in the Bourke St Mall.

Lunchtime traders in Centre Place, Melbourne CBD, 4 Dec 2015

Lunchtime traders in Centre Place, Melbourne CBD – a fantastic spot for good food and a great price from a variety of small hole-in-the-wall shops – also has some interesting artwork and graffiti.

Buskers in Bourke St Mall, Melbourne CBD

Buskers in Bourke St Mall, Melbourne CBD – these guys were amazingly good, Spanish style guitar with a modern flair. They were feeling the heat of the mid-day sun – but the show must go on…

  1. Melbourne is such a colourful city, you don’t often get to see it in black and white. Great post!

  2. Love the black and white, shows up textures so well and makes the images far more interesting. Great composition too. I really like these, nice job.

    • Thanks Sue, I think looking for a BW perspective is interesting and removing the colour changes the way we see the scene…the second image had quite a bit of colour and when converted to BW really changed the focus to the buskers…at times the colours can be quite distracting…
