    Me and the missus booked a hotel in the CBD (Central Business District) this boxing day so she can take advantage of the 24 hour sales as well as to take our mind off things from the problems we had lately, so while she was busy hitting the shops looking for a good bargain I decided to do some street shooting.

    Mostly it's shoppers, buskers, entertainers and families who just want to enjoy the festive environment, its a bit crowded but the CBD truly comes to life with the festive atmosphere.

    It's nice to be able to get away to the city. Looks warm there but I forgot it's summer. Here we are going into Winter. Hope you had a Merry Christmas

    It would be fun to go for a photo walk and have a coffee or beer and swap some photo stories.

    Thanks for sharing some of the street scene photos. Funny how one almost never sees a video shared.
