Even during the daytime, Chinatown Melbourne is quite the attraction. My eyes were drawn toward the overhead lanterns which, day or night, are always so amazing to look at. Chinatown always seems to be bustling and busy which is why I think its quite an accurate emulation of China itself. The asian style banners which glow neon in the night time, further authenticate the experience
It was a dark winter night and I couldn’t see much except the lights of buildings and the insides of lit up offices. Towering above all however, was this enormous white cross which glowed amidst the darkness. I’ve always enjoyed photos of churches, especially at night- theres just something about their vintage architecture and gothic feel which is so aesthetically appealing.
In my eventful photo hunting day in Brunswick, I came across some architectural gems showcasing the nostalgic ambience a stroll through the inner suburbs often incites. The Railway hotel located adjacent to Brunswick station embodies this with its Rustic appearance courtesy of its aged architecture.
I was strolling past the ever so familiar strip of asian grocers,convenience stores and cafes which make up one of my favourite Melbourne suburbs when I caught glimpse of the vintage architecture so synonymous with Brunswick. I love how each building is a different colour and how they line up alongside each other so seamlessly.
The RMIT Melbourne basketball courts sports some nice modern architecture. Also one of my favourite places to skate with its nice quiet roads and smooth curbs.
The spectacular architectural building within the Melbourne Central shopping complex made for an interesting flick. The translucent roof and patterned structural framework was like looking up into a dystopian vortex. I enjoyed this particular photo because of the contrast in architecture- the old style building alongside the modern roof framework.
Chinatown is my favourite night time attraction in Melbourne. The lanterns and luminescent red lights are truly a sight to see. Its this kind of atmosphere which makes me want to travel and experience this culture and ambience first hand.
