Canon 50D, 50mm f1.4
Available light (January, old GPO, Melbourne, Victoria)
Straight from camera

Without a doubt, Melbourne’s old GPO is top of my list for fave places to shoot – always something ‘happening’ and always the most beautiful lighting, year round!

Taken recently, while enjoying a coffee at the Federal Coffee Palace
with RB’rs Geof, Rhoufi and Andrew Macowiecki :-)

    Wow, this image has a great balance (spoken like someone who nows street!…lol…)…Seriously it has a really nice balance!

  • Thank you, Jude :-)))
    Next time you’re in Melbourne, the GPO is practically across the road from Ted’s – the GPO is a great “time waster” – you’ll be there for ages getting images :-D
