One thing that Melbourne has excited me most must be the quality and quantity of heritage...

The Parliament House, 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...

Wonderful light, composition and details in this beautiful picture of this grand heritage structure! Exquisitely balanced exposure, holding detail in both shadow and highlight! Great work Hugo!

In respects of the UK and other places it is still an infant but as you say it has some very nice heritage, shown here in your architectural image

@P J W Miller: I must say... it's a shame that in my home town, most of the beautiful historic buildings had just "vanished" in the 70s and 80s.:-(

Cool photo, Hugo. I especially like the guy snoozing on the steps. Makes for a more human scale to the whole thing.
