Looking like the wayward bow of a huge ship ploughed into the dock, the Melbourne Aquarium looms above tiny figures scurrying into the night.
Melbourne, Australia

    Love the light and the comp, gorgeous!

  • Thanks Berns… but I did need to wait until there was a character in the frame… and you would know well that obsession ;-)

    Lovely night time colours, R.

  • Thank you Vince… whenever I’m near by I am always drawn to this spot. I was after one figure… oh well I try again next time.

    aah Spring there….I am so jealous.
    Love this capture.

  • Yes Spring Sass, but still cold that night, and waiting for citizen actors to play their part can be tedious.
    Thanks ma’am… sorry you’re heading into Fall ;-(
