While this is not actually out on the street, this cafe (The Commons) was lovely, and coffee was accompanied by a Portuguese Custard Tart each. We always try to track down these little tarts in Australia. They are delicious and if you can get them super fresh with the pastry still crispy then they are even better. There is a big Portuguese population in Sydney, so they are easily found there, but we found them in Melbourne within an hour of arriving! Apparently, the way the pastry is made and placed into the tins is a closely guarded secret.
Street photography is not one of my favourite genres. It somehow feels a bit furtive and underhand to me, which is probably why I changed the original capture to silhouette the lady and eliminate her friend altogether. I enjoy looking at other people’s street photography, but it is doesn’t sit comfortably with me. Is it time to get over myself? The words are the names of various tram and train stations around Melbourne and are painted on a white tile partition wall part way down the cafe. We used the trams a lot, even though we walked miles. They are convenient, frequent and free within the CBD.
