Crack of dawn wake up and some snaps :)

So…due to a change of hours at work, I now have the unenviable task of walking up between 5:30AM and 6:00AM every day for the next 2 weeks 😦 But it did allow me to see the city in a different light as I usually see it when she’s already alive and bustling and it felt different to see her waking up to greet everyone πŸ™‚ But first some previous pics that I haven’t posted yet.

Ichi and CubaIchi the cat and Cuba the Staffy dog sharing a cuddle on the couch…they really are best friends πŸ™‚

Ichi and Cuba 2Just chillin’

Next just 2 random shots walking down Bourke St. one day after work.

Not the best quality I know but I’m putting that down to the iPhone :p Next we have once sworn enemies and now slowly getting used to each other. Ichi’s really friendly and wants to be friends but Mia, the grey tortoise shell, has no desire to be friends at all 😦 But at least she lets him sleep next to her now so it’s a step in the right direction.

Ok…so that finally brings us to today and specifically, the aforementioned, before the crack of dawn wake up call 😦

Melbourne AM 1That’s right…the clock doesn’t lie 😦

Melbourne AM 2Very lonely and quiet…nothing stirring 😦

GPO 1Historic moment!


Mall 1Bourke St. Mall

GPO 3The paths getting washed for another day of pedestrian abuse

GPO 4Spikes on the camera and overhang to prevent the birds from perching on there and pooping on everything and everyone!

Mall 2Another shot of Bourke St. Mall facing the other way

GPO 5And lastly a shot of a busy street cleaner, working in short sleeves in freezing conditions!!

And lastly, on the way back down the Mall in the afternoon after work, I noticed this little guy busking and dancing up a storm to Michael Jackson! He actually wasn’t half bad despite how little he moves in the video, I just started filming too late and missed the best of it 😦
