It was a cold autumn morning, as I can tell from these first photos taken as I left home. Eureka Tower is up in the clouds.
The Shrine Gardens are a bit misty.
Even less of Eureka Tower now.
I photographed the photographer. I am sure he gave me a dirty look.
Fifteen minutes later, blue sky was appearing.
Shadows were being cast.
And I was looking around the Southbank area.
Remains of the Sandridge rail bridge.
Tiered lunch seating?
The mist comes and goes for a while.
Gattina, your beer is here.
Some native plantings close to the Southbank promenade.
Some of this cobble stone paving appears to have been here for a very long time. Does my gut look fat in this photo?
These sculptures lining Sandridge Bridge move up and down the bridge, but so slowly I can never detect any movement.
The Ice Bar cometh and the Ice Bar closeth, due to unpaid bills and rent, I heard.
School lads about to board a ferry.
An older European accented man had this cockatoo and I thought it was for picture posing for a fee, but no. He was happy for anyone to pick up the cocky and snap away. The feathers raised around the bird's beak are probably warming the cold air a little as it inhales through the nostrils in the beak.
I forgot to check properly but it seemed to me you could bypass the ticket barriers at Flinders Street Station by walking through this shop.
Mirka Moira's mural is half hidden away and looking rather shabby.
Railway station capacity wanting? Close a platform and turn it into a cafe. I am not sure if it will be successful. We haven't tried it yet.
Mind, it is not accessible from the station.
Looking west down the Yarra River.
Railway safety advertising.
Bad photo taking, with the sign chopped off. This the Travellers Aid centre, to assist strangers to Melbourne who need help or may be in a spot of bother. I think it is run by volunteers.
