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.

Southgate Bridge

 
Across the Yarra
Another view of our Southgate Footbridge across the Yarra which connects Southgate with Flinders Street. This shot was taken from the banks of Southbank and you can see the city buildings - our famous red brick of Flinders Street Station with it's iconic dome, the spire of St. Paul's Cathedral, and modern day sky scrapers with their mirrored windows.

«Louis» finds the structure of the bridge to be very interesting. This is a fine shot - it encompasses many things, showing the diversity of urban life; the old and the new; a very welcome contribution to Sunday Bridges.

Your blob is like a virtual Melbourne city walk for me. I visited this beautiful scenic city 4 years back and your blog brings memories of my trip.

Thanks a Ton and please keep posting more and more pics of this lovely city Melbourne.
