(Tassie Trip) Day 7 – City of Launceston

September 30, 2015

I didn’t take too many photo’s with my camera on the day we explored the city of Launceston.  Sometimes, you just want to look, feel and enjoy!  However, I did take a few plus some phone snaps.  Launceston has beautiful old buildings.  Next time I visit, I’d like to do a Heritage Walk.

As a Brisbane girl, of course I had to get a photo of this. By the way, this arcade is on Brisbane Street!

    I am enjoying your travels through Tassie as I’m doing a similar trip in November. Launceston certainly looks like it should be on my itinerary! Lovely photos. 🙂

      That’s good to know Kathy – thank you! I’m envious of your upcoming trip in November. You’ll love it over there. Keep watch for my next Tassie Trip post for photographs of Cataract Gorge – absolutely stunning place and a must see when in Launceston! 🙂

      It was the perfect time of year to be in Tassie Malinda – Autumn! 🙂

    Min, these are great photos you are far too hard on yourself and your work. I really like the second photo because the red bricks are a good contrast and draw the eye. The one of the Brisbane Arcade is really good as well. That one is really good and a poster quality shot if you crop everything else out and focus on the actual window itself. The brown, the cream and the magnolia colours are perfectly complimentary and the turn work on the wood draws the eyes up and across and you have managed to get the frosted glass perfectly with no “light bounce” great work indeed.

      Thank you Patrick! Yes I can be hard on myself with regards to my photos and I’m not particularly happy with this lot. I was tired after a very fast paced few days and my heart wasn’t really in it. I wanted to soak up the atmosphere more than anything. I do like the second photo because the colours are lovely and it’s an interesting match of colours between the orange/red bricks and the lovely red autumn leaves on the trees. I agree with your crop idea for the Brisbane Arcade shot. I left it as it was for this post though so as to capture the ‘Brisbane Arcade’ words. I’ll crop to focus on just the window and see how it looks! It’s much easier to avoid light bounce on windows over in Tassie than here in Queensland! 🙂

    Nice post. I just love everything about Tassie and Launceston has some very special places – I think you have captured it really well.

    • Reply Min October 2, 2015 at 5:00 pm

      Thanks Julie. I absolutely loved Tassie and Launceston was a really pretty town. 🙂

  • Reply Trish October 2, 2015 at 1:18 pm

    Lovely Launceston – so colourful and calm.
    I hope I get there when I travel to Tassie to paddle.

    • Reply Min October 2, 2015 at 5:03 pm

      Hope you get there Trish. It’s lovely and Cataract Gorge is nature at its best! 🙂

    Some beautiful photos of Tassie. I love all the colours in trees that you have captured.

      Thank you Sally! 🙂

    I spent 10 days in Tassie last year – just long enough to work out that 10 days wasn’t nearly long enough! Would have loved to spend more time in Launceston – and pretty much everywhere else! Looks like you had a great time!!

    • Reply Min October 21, 2015 at 9:00 pm

      We left on the 13th day and there was still so much more I wanted to see and places I’d seen that I would have liked longer at. Still – it was an awesome trip! 🙂
