Melbourne’s annual Open House weekend – Victoria’s State Library

Written by Gary on July 30th, 2013

I went into the city to photograph Melbourne’s very popular annual weekend – Open House Melbourne – where major buildings in Melbourne are open to the public and their cameras – a great time for photographers to find new material – if they can put up with the queues.

Unfortunately, this year I ran out of time to view the buildings apart from the wonderful State Library, so here are a few of the library which is well worth a visit.

These are all taken with the Micro Four Thirds kit using the wonderful Olympus E-M5 camera.
