Photographer's Note

Federation Square in Melbourne has been photographed before for Trek Earth, but it's a good subject so I thought I would submit my version. The buildings in the complex, sited on the Yarra River, are full of peculiarities. Most are not quite square, with very few exactly vertical walls, and random patterns on them. Like most contemporary architecture, it is divisive: people either hate it or like it. I like it. The odd angles of the building compete with the distortion of perspective because of the wide angle lens, so it's difficult to tell which lines are truly vertical. This view looks down Flinders Street, with the old Flinders Street railway station in the background for contrast.
