Photographer's Note

Last Friday, March 7, I met daddo in Melbourne's central business district for a coffee and the possibility of a few shots. As it turned out, the weather was startling, almost too bright for our modest skills by the time we'd walked across the Yarra River to the Southgate area, just in time to see this couple having their wedding shots taken on the pedestrian bridge across to the north side of the river. Behind the bridge, is one of Melbourne's landmark buildings, the Flinders Street railway station. From the blurry leaves you can see that the European trees think it is already Autumn; this is a feature of the great drought that has afflicted this part of the country. The leaves don't usually turn gold and drop until the end of March.

I cannot say if the use of this bridge for wedding photos has become a common practice, but it's the first time I've seen it!
