Re: Sunday in the City

Actually those days of photography were whilst I was a curtain and blind
hanger and could easily manage Friday afternoon in Melbourne so the
processing costs were normal but I was shown the printing machine when I
thought that some of my images did not come out as I imagined.

We can all be accused of the standard 3/4 record shot but I usually
endeavoured to have the tram just a part of the scene. Out along route 11
(West Preston) a lot of locations were able to include the city buildings.
St Kilda Road has all those marvellous trees. Huge swathes of Melbourne
have marvellous houses as well although we are doing a pretty good job of
wrecking those locations.

Here's a couple hastily found on this HDD. The shots of 858 show that the
connie was prepared for the return from Lonsdale Street, only a couple of
stops northwards. These two are 24 July 1993. The last three were taken
on 9 August 1993, a very auspicious day in the life or so I'm told. 😇
