Melbourne Photo Diary





I needed a time out recently and managed to book some cheap flights to Melbourne, for a weekend away. As an avid traveller I am always tempted to book flights overseas on a whim of great escape, but find all I need it to fly a single hour away from Sydney. I barely took any photos despite lugging my huge camera around everywhere, but it was simply because I was having too good of a time wandering the streets and spending every moment laughing with old friends (the only downside was someone stealing $400 from my wallet...). Apologies there are not many snaps but I thought this would be a better insight then none at all.

Photos by myself and Melissa Findley

  22. amazing as usual, though my favourite photo is the last...
    because no matter how far or wide you travel, the best place is always waiting for you when you return - home.

    i'm in france at the moment, and though i love it so much, i am just hanging out for the moment when i see my beloved sydney again!

    and the sun... (:
