A Good Friday in Melbourne
On Friday’s I usually do a rework of a previous image, but today, being Good Friday and Easter, well I thought I would do something else. I did go into the city very early this morning to take some photos. I had hoped that I might find the city empty, and to a certain extent it was, but there were still people around. I wasn’t finding much inspiration, so I didn’t take many photos. I did take some of a subject that I have photographed before.
I have taken this image plenty of times. At different times of the day, and in different weather. One day I will have to put them altogether and see if there are differences in the scene. The sun was really bright so I used the curve of the bridge to block it out and I think it worked really well. I quite like this composition.
I haven’t really taken this one before, I don’t think. I tried to do it with no people, but when I got here it all of a sudden got very busy and people were everywhere. This was the emptiest we saw it.
I like the blue sky, strange because on the way home it became overcast and has been ever since. It had been cloudy earlier, so the beautiful blue sky was a surprise. It contrasts so well against the white structure of the bridge.
I didn’t get what I hoped to get this morning, but I had a lovely time and got to catch up with a really good friend, what more can you ask for.
We looked at the postcards and I think I got my first order, she loved them, so that is great news.
Hope you are having a great Easter.
