Thanks for sharing more of this city Joe! Haven't been there (or evene near), but it is certainly on my to-do list.
IMHO your set of 8 November above was a bit stronger, but still some nice pictures here. From this set, the cityscape in #3 is my favourite,
From the rowing boats I like #2 (although that could have been shot everywhere) better than #1, but the latter gives a good idea about the scale of things. As a little note of "critique" it's a petty some feet are missing in #7. TFS and keep them coming please.

Fred, thanks for your feedback. You really should think about making a visit some time, and I'll happily try to arrange a DM around the occasion. Melbourne is often rated as 'The World's Most Liveable City" - vying for the title with Vancouver and Vienna over recent times.

Here are some more, all a99ii and CZ 24-70mm f2.8 Vaio-Sonnar.

9. These of the National Gallery of Victoria currently featuring exhibitions of the works of Basquiat and Haring, and Kaws.

10. Keith Haring's 1984 mural re-created on the water wall at the main entrance. The original version was short lived because soon after its creation it was vandalised by a rock being thrown through the central panel depicting a woman giving birth, and then had to be covered in hoarding while the windows were repaired, and the artwork was not re-created until now for the current exhibition.

Finishing off with these recent images, taken during an outing to take my Week 50 entry and out-take, which are included here again.
Again, all a99ii with CZ 24-70mm f2.8 Vario-Sonnar. C&C welcome.

1. One of Melbourne's W-class Melbourne trams that were in service when I was a lad. They are now used on the free tourist circle route around the CBD, and quite a few have been sold overseas including to various cities in the USA.

All in all a great series of (summer) views of this great city, Joe! TY!

As the trams are concerned: Obviously the tram people of my hometown have some relationship with Melbourne. There is a tram running that is named "Melbourne" and has a large info table inside that tells about the Melbourne system.

These from our recent DM Melbourne attended by James, Adam and myself.
A few belong here to round things out as well, I think.

All a99ii and either CZ 85mm f1.4 Planar, or Sigma 15mm f2.8 diagonal fisheye.

My family and I spent just over a week in Melbourne recently and I was able to catch up with @Jozioau and @adhox for a fun Dyxum Meet (DM: Melbourne 11-01-2020). Outside of the DM, I came away with an awfully large number of images. I'll pick out those that appeal to me the most and post a few at a time to avoid one large post.

#1 ArtVo


#2 Umbrellas at Docklands


#3 Wet chairs


#4 Brighton bathing boxes


#5 more bathing bozes


#6 Parkdale beach


All A58, Sony 16-50mm f/2.8

James,
Fine additions, of which I'm most impressed by #5 the synchronised sailboarders.

Thanks Joe, bit of a lucky catch that one. It was interesting to the different styles of cameras and mounts they use for recording their adventures.
C & C always welcome
