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.

Playing Footsies

 
Above: The Sneaker Stretch

Federation Square is a popular meeting place, and sometimes when you are waiting a long time, it's more comfortable to do the "Sneaker Stretch" - sit on the ground arms stretched out behind and touch your toes with another.

You see people in lots of different poses and positions. This young lass was near me as I too waited for a friend.

Today's quote: This is the Zen approach: nothing is there to be done. There is nothing to do. One has just to be. Have a rest and be ordinary and be natural ~ Osho

Maybe one of the years best? You've got the feeling perfectly - and that background regimentation - just wonderful
