Causeway Lane

Causeway Lane (also known as The Causeway) is a street in Melbourne, Victoria. It is a short, quiet and narrow openlaneway, running between Bourke Street Mall and Little Collins Street between Elizabeth Street and Swanston Street in the central business district of Melbourne.

Located in the heart of the shopping precinct, the Causeway is currently flanked by some small boutique shops, indoor and outdoor cafes and sushi bars.

The lane is notable for the heritage listed former Union Bank a tall curved palazzo styled building constructed in the 1920s which has a mezzanine entrance at the corner of the lane. The building is now occupied by Laurent, an upmarket French patisserie.

It really looks like a great place for a stroll or people watch.

Luis Gomez, yes it is because so many restaurants in this lane way. Even myself, I love Hainanese Chicken in one asian shop here. Beautiful food : )

Nobu, thank you. actually I have two shots for this lane way but I love the expression of the couple in this shot even they was almost out of the frame.

Louis la Vache,
Your shot is great so I can't resist to visit : )
And thank you for invited me to join Sunday Bridges.

What a great shot! The couple really make it--I like the fact that they're at the edge of the frame, allowing me to see the lane and still enjoy their happiness.

Thanks for your visit to Pasadena Daily Photo Today.

I like these pedestrian-only streets! We have too few of them in this country. You composed this nicely, too. Looks like one couple is enjoying the day a lot!

Thanks for stopping by our blogs and commenting. Much appreciated!

Nice angle, it's not easy to realize such shot in a narrow street.
