Nothing Better Than A Shadow On A Sunny Day

Many things attract many photographers, but shadows always catch my attention. This shot was taken on a sunny evening at Southbank here in Melbourne and I guess in a way it tells the story of this city. Look in the background and you'll see the pedestrian footbridge across the Yarra, connecting the river's south and north banks. The south is the central business district, while the north is the newer arts precinct and more modern commercial premises. It's a city built on water, where we're never short of a bench for quiet contemplation among the seagulls and the tourist cruise vessels.
