Royal Exhibition Building

By Darren Stones

Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia IMG_5010_Royal_Exhibition_Building

Location: Carlton, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

“The Royal Exhibition Building is an imposing sight, and even better at dusk when it’s floodlit. When I was making this photograph, some friendly possums came to check out the action. With large trees located in the Carlton Gardens, in which this building is located, I think it’s great that there’s wildlife in such a location so close to Melbourne’s CBD.

When I arrived at the location, I walked around the building and decided to sit down and look at it for about 20 minutes, as I was rather keen to gain a better sense of the importance of this World Heritage-listed building" - Darren Stones

Why I love Lakes Entrance

By Darren Stones

Lakes Entrance, Victoria, Australia IMG_4939_Lakes_Entrance

Title: Lakes Entrance

Location: Lakes Entrance, Victoria, Australia

“Lakes Entrance evokes a strong sense of fun and the rekindling of memorable experiences for me. As a young boy in the 1970s, my hard-working parents introduced me and my younger brother to this coastal paradise during a family holiday.

As a kid, I remember a severe thunderstorm that struck the town and began to flood the busy fish and chip shop in Myer Street. The staff continued to serve the customers during the storm and we ended up getting our food and a good soaking. But we didn’t mind because we were on holidays and it was all part of the adventure.

When approaching ‘Lakes’ – as it’s affectionately known – I begin to get excited at the thought of seeing the lakes system and picturesque foreshore areas. I feel as if Lakes Entrance has become an integral part of my life. It’s as if the place is flowing through my veins.

Bronwyn and I shared our first holiday together in ‘Lakes’ during late December 1987, where we stayed at the Bamboo Motor Inn, and ever since we have enjoyed revisiting the town which has become an important part of our lives. I introduced her to the town and she has developed a strong attachment to it, too. We recently found a new vantage point that overlooks the town and we embraced this photographic experience together. Another memory now etched in my mind." - Darren Stones
