Portraits and laneways in Melbourne

by on Apr.07, 2019, under Outings

The weather for our outing last Sunday was ideal, overcast with no sun or harsh shadows.

After a train trip into the city by most, we met under the clock at Melbourne Central and viewed the Iconic Women Exhibition, including images of Olivier Newton-John, Audrey Hepburn and Nicole Kidman, to name just a few. It gave us some inspiration in portrait/creative photography as most images had some sort of graphic added to them.

We stuck together, heading towards Fed Square via laneways and alleys, including Tattersalls Lane, Croft Alley, Duckboard/ACDC and Hosier Lane. Luckily we were able to experience the opening ceremony of a new restaurant in Tattersalls Lane; the cameras were clicking!

A coffee break on the way was also a must!

We were looking forward to sampling some French cuisine but the Fed in French Festival was cancelled due to poor weather conditions. Saturday had brought rain and hail on and off during the day. Never the less, there seemed to be a lot of images captured during our walk from Melbourne Central.

It was 12 noon so we enjoyed lunch together at the Rooftop Bar of Taxi; overlooking the Yarra and Southbank. The Outing was enjoyed by all.

Photos from this outing can be found in the outing gallery.

A warm day at the water gardens

by on Feb.04, 2019, under Outings

On Saturday 2nd February, members and friends participated in a visit to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens in Yarra Junction. Despite the warm 38°C day, 23 people arrived at the gardens and enjoyed strolling around the ponds and enclosed pools. Most participants were so occupied photographing in the vast grounds that they didn’t even stop for a coffee break!

We enjoyed chatting whilst enjoying our picnic lunch under the shaded eating area. The day also provided a fantastic opportunity to meet and chat with some of our new members.

From there some departed for home, and a smaller intrepid group headed off to the Redwood Forest in East Warburton. The light was very challenging but it was enjoyable all the same. Then a tired group of people straggled home to check their handy work.

Photos from this outing can be found in the outing gallery.
