Brunswick St in Fitzroy has lots of old buildings many of which are in various stages of restoration or disrepair. In most cases they still have there original awnings and support posts intact. This group of buildings is one a several that make very attractive corner features.
But.... one of the challenges of taking architectural photos in the old parts of Melbourne is the clutter of power and tram wires. I decided to ignore them and accept them as a part of the landscape - beside which it would be too much tedious work to photoshop them all out

A great photo of this vintage architecture and technically very well done! Some great lines and perspective here, including the wires! I often take wires out too....and for sure it's lots of work. But I think in this case they actually add to the photo by somehow increasing the three-dimensionality and reinforcing these apposing angles in a very lovely and symmetrical way! Warm regards,

We see clear the influence of the British time.
All the threads, are this tram lines!
We get real colors with a high quality.
Perfect depth and perspective.
Nice captured, nice composed too.
Very well done, TFS.

Nice feeling of Melbourne here!
And,yes, tram wires are definitely part of the cityscape, as trams too!
