A City Comes Alive 3 Days Before Christmas
Yesterday I decided to head into the city and take photos of the people. The city is buzzing at the moment and there are people everywhere you look. Lots of lots of crowds, the buskers are out everywhere, and people are queuing up to see all sorts of things. I took photos mainly in the City Square and the Bourke Street Mall. The weather was overcast, but it was a nice temperature.
I thought I would just show them to you in a gallery and put some explanations under some of them. Is your place buzzing with excitement like Melbourne?
