A Photograph captures a moment in time, to view for eternity
Nice Vicki – what city is that in the background?
In the background is Melbourne city itself. To the right of background centre, you can the Kiosk at the end of St Kilda Pier (also shown as a thick black line 2/3rds of the frame in front of the city skyline). Melbourne is at the head (or north) of Port Phillip Bay and therefore the shoreline of the Bay curves around, so on a clear day, you can see Melbourne in the distance even if you went further down the bay.
(Geelong – the city I first showed you in the “golden pier” photo AND the “Country Victoria is as dry as a bone” post would be on the far left outside the frame of this image on the other side of the bay. Geelong was the other city originally thought of as a potential capital city of the state of Victoria).
I can reach much of the shore from Port Melbourne (docks/beach), Sth Melbourne (beach), St Kilda beach, and then several beachside suburbs going down south east to the end of a particular train line to Sandringham beach. All the beaches are pretty ordinary, but if you choose close-ups, you can usually find something to photograph. I can reach most of these small beaches via bus, tram or train. If I had a car still, I could photograph some of the more spectacular coastline in Victoria – now THAT……would really be spectacular.
There are many piers & jetties along the curve of the bay near me, but only St Kilda pier is a long one with a kiosk at the end (to my knowledge), until you get to Geelong (which is an hour’s drive from Melbourne). Many commuters travel from Geelong to Melbourne to work. I could also get a train to Geelong, but that would probably be an all-day trip for me – I don’t get up early enough for a day trip LOL.
