James,
A fine conclusion to our mini DM. I particularly like the amazing reflections in your Ja31.
Did you go on to see and photograph more on your own after our Pellegrini lunch?
If so, I look forward to seeing them in the 'Cities - Melbourne' thread.

I recall Adam told us he was off to Japan to see some international rugby soon after our meeting, so hopefully when he's back he can add a few of his images here to round things off.

As always with a DM, it's a pleasure to meet up and interact with members of this great on-line community.

My final installment - this time from AC/DC Lane to Pelligrini's, an iconic Melbourne coffee house.

As well as good coffee, Pelligrini's also serves pasta and I can recommend the spaghetti bolognese .

James, a lovely addition to the mix. Hosier Lane is justifiably famous as an ever changing gallery of street art. I've posted photos from past visits in the Graffiti thread. And of course it's not the only graffiti'd lane in Melbourne - there are many others.
Great group shot again.
Looking forward to seeing more from you (and hopefully Adam).

Continuing into Hosier Lane and Melbourne's extensive displays of street art. I must have been distracted by the graffiti because there weren't as many photos as I thought I had. In any case it was quite an experience being packed in tightly amongst the art, the audience and a few artists. Joe I think your fisheye captures this atmosphere very well.

I think Jo22 shows the next one being produced.

James,
I'm enjoying seeing your take on our walk, and your eye for photogenic detail.
Some lovely images, from overview to close cropped.
#Ja14 shows one of the vehicles that sweeps sand grit out of the tram tracks, used to increase friction between the wheels and the rails on braking.
#Ja18 shows a glimpse of Federation Square as well as the tower of the Arabesque Forum Theatre (see my #Jo19 for the whole building). The Ian Potter Centre is the National Gallery of Victoria's Australian Art Collection, housed in the easternmost building at Federation Square.
My favourites are ##Ja 13 and 20 of this set.
Looking forward to more please, as we head into Hosier Lane.

From Southbank we walked to the Arts Precinct, across St Kilda Rd to Queen Victoria Gardens and then back across Princes Bridge towards Federation Square.

Here's my version of Joe's Jo13. Must have been taken at almost the same time with the same lady in front of the entrance.

Ja12 State Theatre entrance


Ja13 National Gallery of Victoria inside looking out


Ja14 Two different styles of Melbourne tram


Each year a different architect designs a pavilion (MPavilion) for the Queen Victoria Gardens. This one is by Glenn Murcutt.

Ja15 MPavilion


Ja16 Queen Victoria Gardens


The scroll below Melbourne's coat of arms reads ‘Vires Acquirit Eundo’ which translates to ‘We gather strength as we go’.

Ja17 Vires Acquirit Eundo


If my interpretation of google maps is correct this next image shows the Ian Potter Centre and Forum Melbourne against the tall office buildings.

Ja18 Forum Melbourne


Ja19 Ticket boxes


Ja20 Yara cafe


Ja21 Steps and bench


Ja22 Steps to the Ian Potter Centre

For me the fisheye images work especially well in the graffitied laneways - so glad you brought it along Joe.

Peter,
Hope you're eyesight is quickly back to good as new!
As for the fisheye, it is a bit of an acquired taste. I wrestled with what lenses to take for this DM, and opted for it because I'd previously shot past Melbourne photowalks covering the same ground using various linear lenses and thought it would be an interesting change. Also, knowing we would be in the tight space of the graffiti'ed laneways, it could capture the widest sweep of the action and colourful backdrops.
As an antidote, there are James' and hopefully Adam's versions of things.

That's a very enjoyable documentary of the DM! And a very nice group shot telling the location!

TFS!

James,
It's always a pleasure seeing familiar things as seen through others' eyes and lenses.
I really like your take on our photo walk. You've picked out some very lovely details, created some fine images, and as an architect, I especially like those tele shots zooming in on the building details.
Must say, #Ja3 is a bit scary - I really hope the fisherman was unsuccessful. Although there are fish gradually reappearing in the Yarra River that's being environmentally cleaned up after over a century it being a polluted drain taking industrial and other run-offs, I think those fish are still not healthy eating.
Looking forward to seeing the rest from both you and Adam.
