    My self assigned project the last few months has been to shoot some iconic places in Melbourne but from a snapshotty perspective. Not exactly street, more like a building or a place with its hair down so to speak.

    Nice man, really nice.

    I really dig the Bokeh shot of the gentle's head and the "A little Help" with the begger.

    Film looks sweet, I wanna try film now :D.

    Love it Cob :thumbup:

    Some great representations of landmarks from different views.. I like it a lot.

    My favs would be the trams, the girls and swanston st.

    Last shot has such a great retro feel.. like a walk through time.

    great pix.
    I love the city circle tram one in particular.
    Sad thing is I recognize the homeless guy in the Myer one, working in the city you see the same guys all the time...

    Wow thanks guys, I appreciate the comments. I honestly thought most people would find these boring!

    Xhanatos yeah I'm kidding a bit, you know the only kind of photography I'm interested in doing is snapshots.

    As always, love your work. :thumbup:

    Did you get arrested for paedophilia on St Kilda Beach? Taking pics of young girls at the beach is a risky prospect. :lol:

    Nah I dont think people these days would recognize my Oly XA as a camera. They probably tried to work out why I'm putting my i-phone to my eye LOL
