A glimpse of sunshine

This was the only appearance of the sun on Melbourne's coldest day in two years

Taken from Swan Street bridge

Off Centre

The nameless alley off Centre Place in the city. I've posted pics of it before, 
but it's always changing

Tram spotting

A Bumblebee tram (and one of those other ones) near the GPO

Zooming through the Bourke Street mall

Double vision

This photo could be sharper (I'm not carting a tripod around with me everywhere as well!) but I still like it. This is Swan Street Bridge


The remains of a foggy morning (taken around 1.00 pm)

Beautiful afternoon light in the Botanic Gardens

On yer bike

One of Melbourne's new bike hire ranks
(I didn't hire one. I'm scared of helmet hair)

A flock of flying saucers?

No, light fittings at the Melbourne Central food court

Solar Equation

Is it the red planet? 

A meteor crashing down on the city?

No, it's Solar Equation, part of the Light in Winter exhibition at Federation Square

The old hotel on the corner of Spencer Street and that new modern building on Flinders Street

Girl in New York: beautiful buildings #2

View across Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir

A closer view of the two towers on the right above

I think this was Fifth Avenue near the Guggenheim

Fifth Avenue again. Ukrainian embassy perhaps?

Behind the Museum of Modern Art

Awesome building on Broadway, no idea what it is

A closer view

The Southern end of Central Park

Forget where this was....maybe Central Park West

Girl in New York: beautiful buildings #1

A section of the McGraw Rotunda at the New York Public Library

The Rose Main Reading Room of the NYPL

Bryant Park Hotel

The Flatiron Building

I think this is City Hall

The Chrysler Building

Close up of the Chrysler Building

Girl in New York: churches

Trinity Church

The shady cemetery beside Trinity Church

The cemetery at St Paul's Chapel, right on the edge of the World Trade Centre site

St Paul's Cathedral, the largest Gothic church in the USA

St Paul's Cathedral again

Girl in New York: gold

The top of Maine Monument near the south entrance to Central Park

Sixth Avenue...maybe

A clock on Fifth Avenue near the Flatiron Building

Some building somewhere...maybe Union Square?

One of two owls atop the doorway to the Brooklyn Public Library

I think this was on Fifth Avenue near the Flatiron Building too

Girl in New York: on the water

A Staten Island Ferry - once just a free commuter ferry from Staten Island to Manhattan, now also a popular free ride for tourists 

On the harbour, taken from the Staten Island Ferry

Manhattan backdrop - also taken from the ferry

Manhattan again, taken from Brooklyn

On my way back from the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

A tall ship at South Street Seaport (more a museum than a working vessel, I think)
