Melbourne Daily Photo

Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Row, Row, Row your boat...


Standing and watching these intrepid rowers one wintry morning, a comment by a BBC sports commentator came to mind,
"Ah! isn't that nice, the wife of the Cambridge president is kissing the cox of the Oxford crew" - Harry Carpenter, BBC TV Boat Race (1977)

Hello! I like your photos and the introduction to Melbourne. I especially like your photos of street art, sculptures - and that sculptural lamb shank...

The rowers, though, make me want to put on a coat, brrr.

Rob - thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Your's is especially lovely with such beautiful buildings and history.

Three Rivers - Hi, thanks for that. Yes, mu Mum never cooked lanmb shank looking like that!

Actually, it was a lovely mild day when the rowers were on the water. Think from memory it was about 12ÂșC.
