2013 in Pictures: May

After living the dream of two summers in row, I was a little worried about how I was going to cope with May: the month when it officially Gets Cold.

But I’ve gotta say, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. After four years in Canada, where I basically spent three months of the year hibernating, I forgot how mild the weather is in Australia. (Not that most Melbournians would agree. This week I overheard someone say, “13 degrees out there – freezing!”)

I actually think that Melbourne in May strikes a perfect balance: it’s warm enough that you can still get out and enjoy the best of autumn (leaves changing colour, walks in the brisk air, not dying of heat exhaustion five minutes into a jog etc) but cold enough that you can rightly justify a night in snuggled up with hot tea, red wine, a grilled cheese sandwich and a stack of DVDs. As you’ll see from the pictures, I did my fair share of both this month.

Whether you love autumn or you hate it, I hope you enjoy this month’s photo collection.

2013 in Pictures: April

This month I pay homage to Melbourne Uni.

I spent a lot of April meandering through the leafy Parkville campus and so had plenty of opportunity to gather a good collection of shots. (And as I quickly discovered, photography also doubles as a convenient assignment procrastination tool.)

Melbourne Uni provides a whole host of interesting photographic fodder: beautiful old buildings, ornate detailing, sculptures, art, and students doing what they do best – drinking coffee, sprawling around on South Lawn, and lining up for free food!

But April wasn’t just about study. With the colder weather creeping in, it was the perfect time to start transitioning into winter activities: footy, house parties, comfort food and really cementing that coffee addiction.

Until next month.
