Bourke Street, looking east

180 degrees from the shot in yesterday's post. If you look carefully you'll see a couple of signs directing motorists that one of Melbourne's notorious hook-turns is ahead. Designed to let the trams get a clear go, the hook-turns require all right-hand turning vehicles to enter the intersection on the far left and remain there until it's clear to proceed right. Very confusing unless you grew up with them, and still darned annoying anyway.
Like your b&w street scenes !

Love the clarity of the image Marnie! Those turns sound a bit confusing!

Another great night capture :)

What a great shot. Fav

Thank heaven I don't live in Melbourne any more, I hated hook turns

really like the contrast levels in this, makes for such a striking light filled dark image, if that makes sense!

This is a nice complement to yesterday's shot and, surprisingly, a very different feel. Both are best viewed on black.

Love this too

Another great night shot :)

Loving your night shots

Your edit is superlative

I really like this -- great work with the lighting, the leading lines, the combination of people and street. Really well done.

@momamo Thanks Monique, I'm rarely in Melbourne and almost never there at night so this was a very luck time for me.

@pamknowler Not wrong! The darned things create lots of confusion for all those who don't use them frequently, including me!

@haskar Thanks Haskar, very lucky to get that shot.

@onewing Me too Babs!! I haven't driven in Melbourne for the past ten years or so, we always go there by train. Too much traffic (vehicles and OP), too much aggression and too many traps for young players in things like new lanes, new one-way street bits, bike lanes, corners where no turns are now allowed etc, etc.
