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.

Theme Day - Passageway

Up The Ramp
This is one of the underground ramps of Flinders Street Station to the platform. Initially I had cropped it for a later post, but I think it looks more fitting in its unaltered state.

Today's Quote: A valet, of stealthy step, thence conducted me, in silence, through many dark and intricate passages in my progress to the studio of his master - Edgar Allan Poe.

hi blossom, luckily you haven't changed anything. ^0^ looks dramatic the way it is.
the light shining outside while the tiles are glistening,
this has got so much depth to it.
nice entry n foto!

Ben said...

very nice shot. I like lighting and contrast. Very well taken for shiny tile surface and so on.

lugubrious and brilliant at the same time

Oh I like this, all shiny!

VP said...

You was right, I like it as is. A perfect choice for this Theme Day.

Tash said...

Wow! great one for the theme, but it is the best photo I've seen today. Love the reflections in the tile and the perspective. Wow!

Excellent choice. We walked on a passageway through the Flinders Street Station, but never up a passageway to the platforms. I recall several very attractive walkways over the river near there.

Jilly said...

A really good choice. I'm not sure I'd want to lug a heavy suitcase up this ramp. Better than steps tho! Love the reflections offthe brickwork.

Poe would love your take on his words.

Mary Ann said...

What a great shot! I love symmetry, what can I say?

Rob said...

What a grand photo! The sheen from the tiles and the tile lines really pop out.

It appears very sombre and dark but doubtless leads to the light.

hee hee
The Poe quote is appropriate!
