Yesterday I braved the heat and headed into the city to take photos of heat weary kids lining up to see Santa. With the temperature set to 40ºC, it was always going to be hot. I thought going in early would help, but it really didn’t. I got some nice shots, but because they are children I can’t show you, unfortunately, so I thought I would show you a lot more photos from the Docklands, I took lots.
Here is the Christmas Tree with the city behind it. There were people around, but compared to other places around the city, the Docklands were dead. It is funny, because I think many of us would like to see the Docklands be successful, and have ideas, but I don’t think the developers are listening to us. Maybe once the Ferris Wheel is going, if, it will make a big difference.
I had to do a lot of walking this day to get all the photos for the City of Melbourne, but it was nice walking around here. Then I had to go back that night to catch some photos of the tree with the lights on it.
The light pillars also had light lights around them. It was like lines leading up to the tree.
I am going to do a gallery with nearly all the photos I took that day of the Docklands, both day and night.
My work for the City of Melbourne is almost complete, and Christmas is almost here, we are heading back into rainy weather, which you would think would be good after 40 yesterday, but it would be nice if it were cooler, but still sunny. It is one of the strangest summers ever so far, ones like this always make me nervous.
I heard some people talking on the train yesterday, two visitors from the UK were saying they found the weather strange, and a woman sitting across from them said, that the weather was very changeable in Melbourne, that she had lived here all her life and still wasn’t used to it. I remember thinking, that it was absolutely true. We really never know what we are going to get.
My husband just said another one, “if you don’t like the weather in Melbourne, just wait 5 minutes”.
Just a reminder, Monday is fast approaching, and I am looking for emails from people with links to their Christmas photos. So if you have any, please send me an email.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
