A Day Out in the City

It was my birthday today, but like so many other birthdays it is just a normal day.  I did get to go into the city for lunch and had one of my all time favourites, Yum Cha.  I love Yum Cha, it is the best sort of Chinese meal.

I also took my camera, so I have some photos that I took today, and will probably post more tomorrow as well.  Normally I wouldn’t bother to take photos in the middle of the day, but the sky was overcast and the sun was struggling to get through.  I decided to just have a go, and take some.

The ones today have been taken in similar places to the ones I took a few weeks ago when I went in to take photos of the lights.

Probably could be better, though I am finding a lot of photos of the city came out looking very gray.  It is a little disappointing, but I suppose that is the problem when gray is the predominate colour.

Again very gray, though there are some sparks of colour here and there.  I do like the sky in these images.  I find the different shapes and sizes of the buildings quite intriguing as well.

This one is probably one of my favourites for the day.  I like the angle the image is taken from and the cloudy sky.  I might have to try and go back sometime to see if I can the same image but with different skies.  I would like to spend more time in the city taking photos.  The pretty and the ugly.

    Hey, Happy B’day 2 u! So when’s the treat?
    And I like the third photo too; I like the way the beam shoots out from one corner and lands on the ground further away.

    • Thank you.
      That is an interesting way to describe it, I like it. I have seen some good shots of that bridge, am going to have to go back and do more.

    I also like the third shot. The beam gives it a really interesting perspective.

    • Thanks, I really like it too, might have to try the same perspective when the lights are turned on.

  4. I like everything about that third shot…the beam, the sky, and the way that the contrast pops out, all yellowish, on the building with the clock tower…
    Is it a train station?

    • Oh! Forgot to say “Happy Birthday!” 🙂

      • Thanks Marie, The third shot seems to be the most popular. I am glad, it isn’t very often that the shot I like is like by everyone else as well.
        Yes that is a train station, Flinders Street Station. It is a very iconic building here in melbourne. Will take some photos of it one day.

  5. Happy Happy Day! And I concur, the third photo draws me in. It looks like a futuristic view of a cityscape once we’ve blotted out the sun!

    • Thanks Bonnie. I like your description of the bridge. I really understand what you mean.
