  1. I love this project! What a great idea. I moved to Melbourne six months ago, and as a result have only a very superficial knowledge of the city – particularly the culture or reputation of different suburbs, as a lot of it is left out of the main history books! I’ve really enjoyed reading the stories of Melbourne in these posts, thank you.

    I actually found this site because I was searching for Melbourne Photo Essays to inspire/compare notes with a little (informal) photo project I’ve just started myself on my site, http://www.thewanderbug.com. As a “local” (If I can call myself that yet) it’s easy to forget to take photos of your own town. Trying to capture Melbourne as I now know it in my own series of photo essays. Thanks for the inspiration! Looking forward to reading more of you work

    1. Thanks for the comment Genevieve, I’m really glad you are inspired by the blog. I’ve lived in Melbourne 25 years, but it’s only been in the last couple of years that I’ve really started exploring the city properly. Sometimes living in a place stops you from getting to know it because you are stuck in a routine – I was, anyway! Good luck with your project, I like your photos and look forward to seeing more.
