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.

I love the glorious colours of Autumn and was so taken with the beauty and colour of these trees when I was driving down a local street visiting a family member, I just had to stop and get out. The silver bit in the bottom right hand corner is my car. The Acer Palmatum (Japanese Maple) is one of the most beautiful trees, especially in Autumn when the leaves turn a rich, fiery orange-red. Unfortunately, the tree was so large, I wasn't able to get the whole tree in the photo. But here's another shot below -
These streets are in one of our outer suburbs not far from the Dandenongs - you can see the Dangenong Ranges in the distance at the top of this street near the main road. Photos taken 16th May this year.
