Current Outing: Converging Lines, Architectural – Tue 5th March 2024 (1st Tue)

Our first outing for March on Tue 5th March, will be something new.

We are going to have a themed outing: Converging Lines – Architectural

Normally we are encouraged to ‘fix’ converging lines. But for this outing, be bold!

A lens in the 10mm – 35mm range (FF equivalent) is useful to accentuate the converging lines.

Have a look on our Themes webpage for inspiration: MWG Themes
We will meet at 10:30am at Sir Osborn café at 1 Nicholson St, East Melbourne, on the corner with Albert St.
We will then explore the north-east corner of the CBD. 
We’ll have lunch at 12:30 at the Elephant & Wheelbarrow on the corner of Bourke and Exhibition Sts.
Our booking is on the first floor.
You are free to explore other themes as well.

‘The Future Is Shaped by Those Who Can See It’

Our fourth outing of the year will be a little different.

This week we’ll be going to PHOTO 2024, an International Festival of Photography (1st to 24th March 2024).

The award-winning biennale features free exhibitions and outdoor art installations to explore across seven Festival Precincts in Melbourne.

We’ll be exploring the Arts Precinct, starting off at Federation Square. Below is a map from the program and a list of exhibits for quick reference. I suggest you click on the links and decide what you’d like to see. You may also want to explore other sites around Melbourne over the duration of the festival.

Addressing the theme ‘The Future Is Shaped by Those Who Can See It’, PHOTO 2024’s expansive program invites audiences to discover the possible and parallel futures that lie ahead, and how current actions are shaping future realities.

PHOTO 2024’s events have tours, talks, film screenings and workshops concentrated on four weekends from 1st to 24th March 2024. The events allow photography lovers at all levels to participate.

We start at 10:30am at the NGV café in the Atrium at Federation Square.
We’ll return for lunch to Beer Deluxe at Federation Square at 12:30pm
