The docklands area of Melbourne, Australia, is a former shipping port which fell into disuse because its docks were not able to handle large container ships. Today it is becoming a lively place with a new stadium, trendy apartments, and innumerable restaurants.
It is always nice to have something in the foreground of your photos. The pilings in the Docklands are perfect for this!
Also in the Docklands, are a marina and Webb Bridge, an artistic walking bridge across the Yarra River.
If you tire of walking, trains are going in, out, and around the city at all times. In this image taken from a bridge over the tracks at Flinders Station, some trains are moving fast enough to become mere streaks in my exposure while in others you can see the people.
There were no customers at this ATM in the Los Angeles Art District, an area of the city where nearly everything is a canvas.
A bird may be hiding its home in the trees somewhere, but the nest I am speaking of is the Beijing National Stadium, nicknamed the Bird’s Nest. A small corner of this unique, nest-shaped steel structure provides the background for this image, which is my contribution to this week’s challenge.

I am joining all the millions who have taken this same shot of the U.S. Capitol. It is a well-worn path, but beautiful nonetheless. I have contributed this image to this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Australian photographer, Leanne Cole.
