The silly season has begun, and I have been out taking lots of photos of what is happening around the city, both for myself and the City of Melbourne. The city is abuzz with the Christmas Spirit and you can find it nearly everywhere you look, well the main parts of it anyway. The city is also so crowded, didn’t expect that with Christmas still 24 days away that so many people would be in the city.
This the main walking bridge between Flinders Street Station and Southbank, and it has been lit up for Christmas. I went in there last night to get some photos of the bridge, and took this one a bit down the river. I love the way the lights reflect off the water.
The main reason for going in last night was because handing in the middle of this bridge is a light decoration of mistletoe, so I had to get a couple kissing under it.
Mistletoe is not something we do here really, and I suspect a lot of people don’t know what it looks like, so I thought if I gave the council a photo of a couple kissing then they could use the image to help show people what to do under it. Not sure how it will go.
Was hard to get, the bridge was moving so much with the people on it, but you get the idea.
Will find time to start processing all the photos I’ve taken, so more will be coming. I am looking forward the emails from you guys about the photos you have been taking.
