Melbourne Architectures

Last evening, I visited three famous buildings in Melbourne, namely, the Royal Exhitibion Building, the Southern Cross Railway Station and the State Library of Victoria.

Sydney, day two

Last Sunday, after the sunrise, I quickly went to the north of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to take more photos. I walked through the bridge and reached the Milsons Point.

After taking so many shots, about 9.15am, I went back to the hostel for check-out. At 11am, I reached the Manly beaches and I saw too many people there.

Although my flight to Melbourne was at 7.30pm, I reached the airport (by train) 5 hours earlier. I couldn’t get the earliest flight, so I just walked around inside the airport. Fortunately, my flight was not delayed.

Sydney, day one

The first museum I visited in the morning of my arrival here in Sydney was the Pylon Lookout. From the top, we can see the panoramic Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Circular Quay.

After checked-in into the hostel in the Rocks and took a rest for a while, I went out in the afternoon to the city center. There, I found the Sydney Tower but I didn’t climb it. Hence, I continued into the nearby Hyde Park and found the artistic Archibald fountain.

Later on, I walked through the Royal Botanic Garden, a 30 hectare oasis in the heart of the city and reached the Mrs Macquaries Chair. By sunset, I was already in the Sydney Opera House’s walkway.

An evening in Melbourne

Yesterday (Tuesday) evening, I went down to the city by myself.

From Collins Street to Docklands, with my dslr camera in my hand, I snapped all things with peace in mind.

Building no. 333 Collins Street:

In Docklands, an optical illusion building called ‘Cafe Wall Illusion’ building.

And to make sure that the cow is still up on the tree during sunset.
