During the week I had to take a trip into the city, so I thought, go in early and take some photos of Flinders Street Station. I’ve been meaning to do it for awhile. I wanted to find out if I would get asked for my permit to photograph Melbourne Train Stations, remember I told you about it a couple of weeks ago. I will do more on the permit at the end of the post.
This photo was clearly taken in the station. I fully expected someone to walk up to me and ask what I was doing, and that I wasn’t allowed to take photos. It is fairly common knowledge that photographing the inside of Flinders Street Station is not allowed. I am wondering if it is a old wives tale.
I was up on the concourse for this one, they really need to clean the windows. I was obvious, I had my camera hanging around me, I walked from one end to the other, but still no one asked. I have to admit, I was disappointed. After being asked for the permit at Heidelberg Station, I thought for sure I would be asked here, so surprised nothing happened.
Experiment, big fail.
I have a lot more photos of the station for you, plus a couple of others I got when I walked over the river. I will put them into a gallery for you.
It is probably a good idea though, if you want to go and take photos, to get a permit, so here is the link Filming and Photography at Metro Train Stations. All the information is there.
