This might seem like a strange photo to choose to get The Melbourne Local blog rolling, but in a way this image is far more representative of the city than one of those panoramic shots of South Bank or shiny high-rise buildings glinting in the sun. Many of the things that make Melbourne interesting are tucked away and out of sight — down laneways, behind unmarked doorways, and definitely not in your typical guidebook.
This photo was taken in the CBD — just a random little street that tickled my fancy. (I’m not going to tell you exactly where. To find it you’ll have to go exploring!)
