Hong Kong- first evening

It was in December that I visited Hong Kong and only now I went throught the photos, so they are new in that sense. I have been in a slump as I’ve stated before, now I am on the way up. My aim was to post the photos in a time line, but no, I will post them as I feel like. I will go back to my minimalist approach, few words and hopefully the picture will deliver what I want to convey; The world as I see it.

These are first impressions of the city after our arrival in the evening.

Why do I do this

Lazy, or something else, Haven’t been editing my Australia photos as quickly as I would have liked to. Have not even touched the ones I took in Hong Kong. I think, no, I know, I have not taken my camera out but only once since January. I think I am slightly depressed as I am not able to create anything new, I plan, I plan again, but then I don’t get anything done. My head is in a mist.

Have you been at this kind of a slump in your photography. You know, why do this, there are so many better, more creative and talented people out there. Who cares. Point being, I have always done this for me, never had any real ambition to be something. Just to share, the world as I see it. Come spring, hopefully, I will get back on the track.

Misty Beach

Melbourne Street art

The best street art in Melbourne !
Don’t let one of the world’s biggest living art exhibitions pass you by… we didn’t 🙂 . Street art covers so many places in this, colourful city, but there are more highly concentrated clusters than others. We visited at least Hosier Lane, Beaney lane, Duckboard Place, Flinders Lane, and AC/DC Lane. I was impressed.

St Kilda

St Kilda Pier

We also visited St Kilda Pier it’s history dates back to 1853. Providing panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline and Port Phillip Bay, the pier is a popular destination. I liked how I was able to capture the skyline behind the sailboats at the pier. The opportunity to see a penguin in it’s natural habit at a place like this was something unexpected.

Victoria, Brighton Beach

Brighton Beach

Here you have 82 distinctive bathing boxes, a row of uniformly proportioned wooden structures lining the foreshore at Brighton Beach.

Built well over a century ago in response to very Victorian ideas of morality and seaside bathing, the bathing boxes remain almost unchanged. All retain classic Victorian architectural features with timber framing, weatherboards and corrugated iron roofs, though they also bear the hallmarks of individual licencees’ artistic and colourful embellishments.

Just try to resist pulling out your camera and snapping away, I for sure was not able to do that! Text from https://www.visitvictoria.com/

Melbourne – Flinders St Station


Next place, Melbourne, first stop is Flinders Street Station. Opened on September 12th 1854, Flinders Street Station was the first railway station built in any Australian city. I especially liked the fixture of the station’s façade, the clocks date back to the 1860s and continue to display departure times today.

Sydney~7 ~Bondi Beach

In Sydney, you have to see to Bondi Beach, right, after a busy day of seeing sights in the city we decided to see if for ourselves. We ended up staying there only for few hours. We sat watching the waves and surfers. I don’t know how they do it… the surfers.

the beautiful blues of the ocean

the surfers caught my eye …for a reason

Then came the clouds.

and slowly passed the beach

We left the beach with the rainbow behind us.
