Photo Friday: State Library of Victoria in Melbourne

naptimewithyasminephotochallenge-may-copy

The above photo, which was the photo for the photo challenge of the month in May, was taken in a photo workshop (organization listed in post on where to continue your learning in Melbourne). The workshop’s theme was storytelling, and the subject was the State Library. The workshop was in June, but to commemorate my current visit to Melbourne I’m posting this now. Below are the rest of the photos and my amateur attempt to convey a story.

Around 9:00am there were only a few people around the grounds. It was a brisk fall morning.

Some people started to walk around the entrance, even though it didn’t open until around 10.

It was almost the end of the semester, so many students started to show up in hope of getting a good spot for a day of study.

People of all ages and backgrounds began to wait.

Around 10:00am, people had already been waiting. Some had takeaway pastries and coffee. (Some, like the man in the photo of the month, had an entire chicken.)

As soon as the doors were unlocked, the people waiting flooded in and secured their best spots, with powerpoints (plugs) and silence. I went inside to see what all the fuss was about.

When I stepped back outside, there were a lot more people. The regular city goers had taken their places in the lawn outside. Skateboarders were doing tricks and even the crepe food truck was setting up.

A live band started playing and I went across the street for some coffee. So Melbourne.
