The Street Art of Fitzroy

One of my favourite things to do in Melbourne is wander the back streets of Fitzroy (coffee in hand) and marvel at all the amazing street art. Following on from my most popular blog post of all time The Street Art of Montreal, I bring you The Street Art of Fitzroy – a collection of my most-loved images from the past year.

2013 in Pictures: August

This month’s challenge was all about “collections of things”.

Like the last two months I’ve had a theme, it’s forced me to be a bit more creative in what I snap, rather than just life-caching. I’ve tried to mix it up and capture collections of things that are natural, man-made, old, new, everyday and unusual.

I’ve also been playing around with with the contrast and color of my photos (instead of just cheating and clicking “auto correct”). I think the photos this month are much more vivid as a result.

I hope you enjoy “Melbourne in Multiple”!

2013 in Pictures: June

In photography, the smallest thing can become a great subject. The little, human detail can become a Leitmotiv.

– Henri Cartier-Bresson (French photographer)

A couple of years ago I was travelling with my good friend and photographer Bethany Edwards (check out her blog) and I was amazed at how she would capture these stunning images of things I hadn’t even noticed. Now I see: photography changes your perception of the world.

I’m now halfway though my Photo-A-Day Challenge and I’m astounded at how much more detail I take in than I did at the start of the year. In celebration of this, June’s photo challenge is devoted to The Close Up Shot. (Well, mostly.)

I actually had so much fun this month that I decided to focus on a monthly theme for the rest of the year, inspired by a great article I stumbled across: 10 Photography Assignments to Stimulate Your Creativity.

Stay tuned next month for People & Faces.

PS. I’ve done away with the captions because I found them distracting. If you want to know anything about any of the shots, just ask!
