Weekend Wandering – Melbourne Indoors
About a month ago I had a Social Snappers Excursion in the city, we went around the arcades, and today I thought I would show you some of those photos. I wasn’t sure about showing them as I have shown so many photos of the arcades I was worried you might be getting bored seeing them again, however we did go to some places that I haven’t photographed much, so I am going to show those. It’s really only two places.
One of the first places we went to was the Cathedral Arcade in the Nicholas Building. It is a beautiful arcade, but very, sadly, run down. It could really do with some TLC. I would love to have seen it in it prime.
For no other reason, than because I like it. I took this in the Royal Arcade, it was on the stand for the Macarons. I love how they have things like this just sitting there. They also don’t seem to mind you take photos.
We went to Myer to take photos of the interior. I am not sure what their policy is on people taking photos in there, but it is such a great building and I love photographing it. There are so many angles and shapes. There is glass everywhere so the reflections are amazing as well. You just never know what you will be looking at. I do know that woman standing in the middle of the image, I am pretty sure, was watching us.
If you go all the way to the top there is a big window where you can see all the buildings in the city. Well not all of them, but it does give you a good view of the city.
We had planned on doing more, well we did do more, but we were going to head outside, but just as we started it started raining, so it was back inside. I love going through the arcades, always trying to get something different, makes it challenging that way. I think the others enjoyed it as well.
I have a gallery for you with a few more images. Not too many. I hope you are having a good weekend.
