A few more from my Melbourne trip. I shot everything on my X100.
Just came back from a quick four-day trip in Melbourne. The weather was great—having just missed the end of their heatwave—and we spent most of our time shopping, eating, walking & taking photos. I’d been before (about four years ago), and it’s easy to forget how much more “alive” the city is than Perth. Even at 8PM at night you’re spoilt for choice, and you don’t feel unsafe walking down the streets between dinner and dessert.
The highlights were Shawcross Pizza in Fitzroy, who offered some of the best NY-style pizza we’ve had; The Hardware Societé in the CBD, with an incredible chorizo & tomato baked egg breakfast (Em had french toast w/ a poached pear & hazelnut praline); and The Snag Stand with amazing cheese kransky, sriracha mayonnaise & cheese on brioche ‘dogs.
Fitzroy was easily our favorite place to eat and explore—you can walk forever and find new places you haven’t seen or visited. We ended up taking cabs ($11 from the CBD) instead of trams there most of the time, and I think the next trip will have us staying in Fitzroy if we can manage it. If I had the option to move here, I’d do it in a heartbeat.
A few shots from this afternoon with the X100, scouting for new places.
