Absolutely stunning pictures taken by photographer Jim Zapsalis, on walks in and around Melbourne, portraying all seasons and all times of day and night.  Jim decided he needed to walk more for health reasons and whilst doing so, rekindled his passion for photography and finds beauty in ‘the most unexpected places’.


A great page with amazing old photographs of Melbourne, curated by Melbourne based artist Chris Macheras.  I particularly love the ‘’Then and Now’ collections.  If you’re interested in the history of Melbourne then this is one for you.
