Sepia Saturday: Melbourne tram

Melbourne tram, a photo by boobook48 on Flickr.
Several times a month I volunteer at the Genealogical Society of Victoria's library. To get there I travel on a tram in Collins St, Melbourne and I really enjoy it. I love people-watching and it's a relaxing way to travel. Tourists love the Melbourne trams - I often see them standing with cameras at the ready. 

I took this photo several years ago, played around with colour and focus,  and uploaded it to my Flickr online albums. Now I'm adding it here for Sepia Saturday's last theme for the year. Unfortunately Santa is not on this tram and I don't have any old sepia Christmas photos so this is it.

Happy Christmas everyone.

  3. You just have to imagine the decorations hanging from the passenger handles, that's all.

    Hope you had a good Christmas.

  6. That's an excellent photograph. I must say I often feel embarrassed to take photos in those situations, and try to do it surreptitiously or pretend I'm photographing scenery, in case the subjects take offense.
