A Day And A Bit In Bleak City (Gallery)

This gallery contains a photographic sketch of a day (and a bit on either side) that I spent in Bleak City (Sydneysiders' quasi-affectionate name for Melbourne) during Easter 2009.

(During which I contracted a memorable dose of food poisoning and whacked a huge gash out of the front of my leg courtesy of a Spring Street statue, may I add.)

Normally I try to organise my galleries so that there's a certain symmetry to them (portrait orientation shots flanking landscape ones, better shots at the top and so forth), but in this one I'll let you follow me in sequence through the day, and through my tour. In terms of finding the better photos, it's a case of "you pays your mouse clicks and you takes your chances".
