Three’s Trouble…

by on Jul.28, 2015, under Life, Photography

A day out with my three girls in Melbourne, shopping, checking out the sights…

Lunch in a quaint little cafe in Degraves St amidst all the hustle and bustle of the busy city…

I purposely underexposed this (by 1 and 2/3rds of a stop) to both retain the highlights and also give it a deeper moodier feel with rich darkness. My three girls standing in a pool of light amidst the chaos and shadows.

Then a walk along the Yarra river across to Birrarung Marr Park to take a look at the Circus Oz tents set up there which we could see from our apartment windows.

and we purchased some tickets for the family to come back that night to go to the Circus :).

Back crossing the Princess Bridge heading back to the apartment to get ready to go out again :).

After a quick dinner we headed back across the river to Federation Square so that the girls could go Ice Skating on the River Rink during twilight when the lights would come on.

Then we were back to the Circus in time for the evening session.
