Melbourne Streets 1

I joined in the IG’ers Melbourne meetup this month – an Instagram group which hosts photo walks in your city. It was a great day walking the streets of Fitzroy and Carlton in Melbourne city.

I wanted to take shots that were a little different, so I popped the 60mm macro lens on and approached the graffiti-laden streets up close and personal. I’ll share the shots with you over a few posts.

The Crew.

    Love it! Makes me miss Melbourne so much – finding street art gems was always a fun weekend activity when I was living there 🙂

      Thanks Deb. I’m trying to make sure I have enough photos to do one post each week just for Melbourne streets.

      Oh thank you! I’ll have to check it on the computer to see how the cropping looks. I confess WP decides how to crop lol.

      It’s a great group. I think they exist in most capital cities. Thanks PP.

    Just love the street art in Melbourne, but I’ve never taken any decent photos – thanks for the inspiration! I can’t wait to see more of your shots.

    Sounds like a good time. I thought of doing one of those guided street art tours, but in the end, I just wandered aimlessly and walked into any lane I could find. I did have a list of 5 lanes to visit though which were all worthwhile visiting.

      They are wonderful places to go. I did them quite quickly once before so I’m planning to do a day in the next month or so and get some new shots.
