Flinders Street

Rush hour in Melbourne… as the traffic comes to a standstill and the throngs of commuters cross the intersection from every angle.

    I love this pic – the sense of permanence and “solidness” of the building – the silent monumental presence contrasted with the sense of movement/transience of the people – creates an almost spooky sense of our mortality & “temporariness” – know what I mean?

    LOL, I sound like a wanker in an art gallery, don’t I? Love the pic, Pete!

    Yes and not at all, Betty. It’s actually very close to the mark and the reason why I chose the slow shutter speed and wide aperture.

    I seem to keep chopping off feet tho’. I must be a frustrated surgeon from a past life or something!
