The mood of the city (2011)

Challenge #22 in the Out of the ordinary series. Hosted by juanlucas.
Challenge has finished
Ok, very complicated... What we are looking here is the "mood" of a city through its people. Very easy example: do you think New York is a stressing town? Ok, then upload a picture of some one living in NY who - through his/her actions or facial expression - can "demostrate" that NY is actually stressing. Do you think that Paris is a relaxing town? Ok, then get a picture of a (or more) very relaxed person(s) living in Paris. In brief: pictures should be able to transmit the mood/character of a city by looking at the people who's living in it. Being your personal interpretation, everything works: it's your choice to represent a city in a certain way, if you really feel that way. So, to conclude: each picture must have at least 1 person in a clear urban environment (pls, "urban" environment only...). Only pictures taken this year. Pls write anywhere the name of the city.

2nd place
Despite a strong Christian tradition in Melbourne, this image taken opposite the central cathedral in the centre of the city represents the current intrusion of alternative beliefs, and the resistance offered by the mainstream populous and the trend towards secularity pervading Australian society.
