The Skyline of Melbourne from Across the River

iPad Mini (and QatQi)

I lost my bigger iPad on a QANTAS flight from Melbourne, which was kind of a bummer. So I decided to try the iPad mini. I didn’t think I would like it as much as I do! I was worried that my photos would feel small and not as impressive… but I don’t find that to be the case yet. I’m really enjoying the form-factor, and reading books on the Kindle app is very nice… Oh, and here’s a fun word-game app recommendation for you: QatQi. Tell me if you make it all the way to the Sunday puzzle and can finish it ! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Skyline of Melbourne from Across the River

Melbourne has one of the most “walkable” skylines I’ve seen. It runs all up and down the river and looks pretty from both sides. It also works out well because there is very little to obstruct your view. It’s the complete opposite, of, say, Bangkok, where getting a view across the river is next to impossible.

I look forward to going back to Melbourne to walk along this river many more times!

    Not sure if it was a typoTrey, but Qantas does not have a “U” in it. Great pic BTW

  • Trey: Great shot! How did you get the light effect heading up into the night sky? Russ

  • We went to Alaska on a Holland America cruise. I highly recommend going on any cruise by them. Trey, I had an ipad mini. They are great. Mine is made by Apple. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photo!! Have a wonderful Tuesday!!

  • I lost my iPad on an American Eagle flight and they called me to let me know they had it at the airport! Hopefully someone with Qantas will find your device.

  • yes — “Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Service” => QANTAS.
    Aussie kids are taught the spelling lesson that a “u” always follows the “q”, with the exception of QANTAS.

  • Thanks for the heads up – fixed!

  • Yup… we are rated as the most liveable city in the world for a very good reason! 🙂
