Soon-to-be Home

About 2 weeks ago I packed my bags and spontaneously flew down to Melbourne to explore the city and shoot with a few like minded people. 
I am looking to move down to Melbourne either in 2 months or next February, I absolutely can't wait to live there. To say that I had a great time would be an understatement, I hope you enjoy these happy snaps of my short but wonderful time in my soon-to-be home town. 

(I also had two photo shoots whilst I was down, which will be uploaded in the coming weeks and when they are I will post a link right here)

The first thing I did was put on a warmer jacket and headed out to the street

I was already in love with the cute café's and local shops

Peeling paint is highly under rated

Alleyways full of surprises

Again, decaying walls and doors of sorts highly, highly under rated for their beauty

Trams blew my mind, why doesn't Brisbane have trams?

The building's were so much, more

The more theatres the better, I say

China town

The city seems more, alive, even more so at night

Kitchen in the wall at Hosier, oh also a Zoe

I love lane ways, I love them

I had my own Melbourne tour guide

I find this image beautiful, even with it's obvious technical flaws, it reminds me of a carousel and I like that

My first few hours of Melbourne left me wanting to explore further the next day

Off to Brighton Beach

The famous beach huts

Finishing up shooting with this gorgeous light

I am quite a big fan of Sofles work, so seeing quite a few of his artworks around the city was lovely!

The suburbs


The mall, well one of them

In the middle of the mall
The abandoned motel's sign

Sneaky sofles

Only mildly terrifying

Melbourne's abandonments walk all over Brisbane, as suspected

Toothless, Dreamworks exhibition at ACMI

Saying a final goodbye to the frequent public transport and brilliant weather as I got dragged back to Brisbane

I'll see you again soon Melbourne!

Down the Rabbit Hole

"Down the Rabbit Hole"

"Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end! `I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?' she said aloud. `I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth. Let me see: that would be four thousand miles down, I think--' (for, you see, Alice had learnt several things of this sort in her lessons in the schoolroom, and though this was not a very good opportunity for showing off her knowledge, as there was no one to listen to her, still it was good practice to say it over) `--yes, that's about the right distance--but then I wonder what Latitude or Longitude I've got to?' (Alice had no idea what Latitude was, or Longitude either, but thought they were nice grand words to say.)" - Lewis Carroll
