Sundowner

There are few things more peaceful and enjoyable than catching a sunset from a high vantage point, away from the masses.  I revisited a favourite spot I hadn’t been to for a few years recently, along with Bryce who is working on a video project of Melbourne CBD.

The last time I was here, it was my final night in Melbourne before heading off to Europe for an indeterminate period of time; actually it was only about eight hours before my plane was due to leave.  I didn’t bring my camera because my tripod was packed away in storage and as it was night time, I figured it would be pointless without a tripod.  Silly me, I should have just used the ledges to stabilise my camera (which is what I did on my most recent visit).  So I got no photos the first time except for one iphone photo.  (As a side note: see how there is a clear view of the Rialto in this photo?  This view is now obstructed by a huge new building.)

This time around I didn’t even have a DSLR to contemplate bringing; I took my Pentax ME, which is my favourite film camera, and used up the rest of the roll of expired Vista 200 that was in it (at least, that’s what I think the film was… I really need to start noting down what film I’m using; I always forget).  Incidentally, I bought a brand new 6D a couple of weeks after these photos were taken.

Is it just me or does Melbourne resemble a bunch of beige and brown boxes from this angle?

After the sun set and I finished the roll of Vista, I took a bunch of long-exposure nighttime shots with a roll of Portra 800.  I’ll post some of these soon.
