Icons of Melbourne #11

When I first started going to Melbourne regularly I was surprised to learn that there were passenger trains operating in the centre of Melbourne. I knew about Flinders St and Spencer St stations but none of the others.

Imagine my surprise to learn that there was a station called Melbourne Central, that it was underground, and that above it there was a shopping centre that had a shot tower in it. And that the shot tower was covered by a cone.

That was a long time ago, of course. Now Melbourne Central is just one of those places I pass through on a regular basis. But I hadn’t photographed it before.

And now I have.

Tim took a great shot of it with his fish-eye lens. Check it out here.

I like to travel and take photographs. I like to blog about both.
