Weekend Wanderings: Beautiful Afternoons Along the Yarra River

melbourne-city-yarra-river-1039

A couple of weekends ago I got to spend an afternoon taking photos along the Yarra River in Melbourne. It was a stunning afternoon and one of those perfect winter ones that we look for.  I had a lovely time along there.

I was teaching a One on One Photography Session and the person I was teaching liked photographing bridges and, well, Melbourne has some great ones along the Yarra River.  So there are lots photos of the bridges and from all different angles.

We also did a couple of photos going indoors to look at how to take photos in low light and what you can do to get the best results.  They were inside the Crown Casino complex where it is very flashy, lots of bling.

Most of the photos are things you’ve seen before, though I did take a couple of photos of Polly Woodside an old sailing ship that people can go on and take a look around.  I hope you don’t mind looking at more photos of Melbourne, I seem to be taking heaps along the river at the moment, what can I say, it has been great weather for it.

I’m just going to leave you with a gallery today. I’m in Sorrento this weekend and not sure how much time I will have to look at comments, but I will do my best to catch up with you all.  I hope you have some great things planned for this weekend. Have a good one.
