Summer Outings – Exhibition Buildings

I feel like it’s been forever since we just went out with photography friends and shot, chatted and just hung out. I know it’s really only been a few weeks, but still it’s good to relax and have a few laughs. This is the old Royal Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne, not the new Exhibition Centre (aka Jeff’s Shed). It is a stately old building with a fountain at the front and beautiful gardens surrounding it all. At night the lights are turned on and it is all like a Summer wonderland. This is one of those things on my Smaller Bucket List, kept meaning to do it, but just never quite found the right time to go, until now.It’s not difficult to get to or to find, it was just a matter of timing.

We did some long exposures, but not enough cloud to make the skies really interesting, and no real sunset to speak of. Then once it was dark the lights came on and we shot for a few hours. It was a warm pleasant evening to shoot and chat amongst ourselves.Β There really isn’t much more to say, I’ll leave you with the gallery…


You can read more about the buildings and grounds here, there is often exhibition on here and well worth a visit.
