Urban Exhale

Australia's second largest city and thriving metropolis, this is Melbourne. It is quite well known for its eclectic artistic communities. Melbourne is often ranked as one of the world's most liveable cities and after a short visit there during my recent trip, I can certainly see why. The Yarra River runs right through the beautiful city and along each bank are scores of fantastic restaurants and cafes. The city seems so alive and full of energy!

 

I walked up and down the Yarra River looking for great photo opportunities each day. Though I have several shots taken from along the river bank, I really liked this one as it truly captured how full of life the city is. I was drawn to the very prominent traffic flow as people returned home from their jobs. Almost as if the city was exhaling after a long, busy work day. If you look a little closer, you can catch some of the hustle and bustle of this famous city and also see several trains in motion, a water taxi cruising by, and a few bicycle headlights.

 

Sorry for the drop off this summer. Took some time off for some projects and client work. I plan to be back for a while now and have loads of good material to carry me for a long time! Look forward to catching up on everyone's streams. Please drop a line if you stop by and I'll be sure to do the same!
