Coming into Bendigo. by golftragic

Coming into Bendigo.

HDR taken from the overpass just before Bendigo station. For non-Victorians/Australians, Bendigo is the state's third-largest city, and has lots of old and interesting buildings and sites. It was first settled in the gold-rushes of the 1850s, and originally named Sandhurst.
all those lines - rail and electrical leading to a a red building - wow fav

Wonderful Marnie, great perspective. There's also the great lines leading the viewer into the image towards thr buildings in the background, they contrast so well with the vertical lines. Love it. Fav

Love this - the lines are great and the grey sky adds to the mood of the shot.

Wonderful composition Marnie!! The leading lines take you right into the shot. If this had been my shot I would have cropped out the black phone line across the top of the shot as I feel it distracts the eye. Hope you don't mind me saying.

Fantastic composition here. Love how you are led right into the picture and the repetition of the poles also draw you in.

Cool shot

Thanks for the info.
Love those leading lines of the tracks and poles, it really draws you in. Those clouds are really threatening!

Great pov with the leading lines. Works well

@ethelperry Many thanks Ethel for both your comments and the fav. Pity about the two poles in front of the brick building. When I've got time I'll have a crack at removing them - and the wire across the top of the frame.

@ceilidh Thanks Margaret, and thanks too for the fav. Wonderful what you can see from an overpass bridge!

@888rachel Many thanks Rachel, the overpass bridge was a real bonus.

@thistle Many thanks Joyce, and thanks too for the fav, much appreciation.

@tracelee A big thank you Tracey.

@pamknowler Many thanks Pam. I certainly don't mind critique, in fact I'd welcome more of it. You're quite right about that phone line, I was just in a hurry, and being sloppy. No excuses.

@onewing Many thanks Babs, who could resist those leading lines?
July 29th, 2014  
@kerristephens Thanks Kerri.

@ninaganci Thanks Nina, I spotted those leading lines as we drove across the bridge so Robin (my daughter) doubled back to a street under the overpass.

@wearing0 Many thanks Debi.

Such beautiful colouration in this photo! I see that, having been a gold mining center, that would explain why I've heard the name in a song!
July 29th, 2014  
@Weezilou Thanks Louise. I can't place the song, but Bendigo features pretty large in Australia's gold rush history. FYI, a new gold mine, using modern technology, has recently been opened in Bendigo.

@golftragic Good for those in charge to not let that go to waste! These are exciting times! (If I come across that song, I'll let you know...)
July 31st, 2014  
@Weezilou Thanks Louise, I'd be interested to know.
July 31st, 2014  
@golftragic ta da! This has been picking at my brain, so I listened to an Aussie CD I'd copied on my computer to bring up here... Surely there are more than this, but, "With my Swag Upon My Shoulder" mentiones the variety of mines, including the fields at Bendigo...

Wonderful find Louise. Gold star and an elephant stamp. Many thanks for your excellent research.
