2013 in Pictures: October

After doing September in black and white, I thought I’d go to the opposite extreme and try to capture all the colour of Melbourne. Enjoy!

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: July

This month, I’ve deviated from my usual photographic crutch of architecture, street art and landscapes and focussed on taking pictures of people and faces. (Ok, there’s still a little bit of street art in there – old habits die hard!)

Due to a lack of willing and available subjects (and my fear of approaching random strangers and asking to take their photo) the result is pretty much a month of selfies! It feels a bit narcissistic, hahaha.

Next month theme is “A Collection of Things” – I promise you won’t see one picture of me!
