A little brighter yet the morning mist and mood are just as enchanting to me... viewing the image is bringing back again the beautiful day that followed!:-) The Larger Version:

6:30 a.m., The Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton Gardens, Melbourne

This is a series of holiday snaps when I was recently on vacation in Melbourne, an amazing city of wonderful heritage, beautiful gardens and countryside...

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

A nice variation on yesterday's picture Hugo! Though I must confess I prefer this in color:)

Beautiful tonal range in this shot Hugo! No detail is lost in this black and white shot and one can feel the hum of the city. Beautiful shot.

It look different, and I thought that the other shot had the magic factor (pre dawn)
