I hope you are intrigued by what is portrayed here. At the top of the frame is the very creative, eye-catching mural at the entrance to the Ian Potter Museum of Art at the University of Melbourne, showing classical figures, a variety of Grecian urns, and even some Corinthian columns.
And in the foreground, in case you’re wondering, is a Melbourne tram – with an ad for a local bank. A couple of months ago, I was shooting the Grecian figures above the main entrance to the museum from a variety of angles when I decided to cross the street to photograph the entire facade of the museum.
As I did so, a tram pulled up at the stop in front of the building, so I took advantage of the unusual opportunity to combine modern transport with depictions of ancient civilisation.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/125 sec, ISO 400, focal length 78mm.
