Theres just something about roses in the night time which make for such an appealing aesthetic. The chipped white weather board fence also did well to balance out the colours in this photo. Overall I found it fascinating how something as simple as a run- down fence and a plant could make for such a great photo. Had this been taken in the daytime, I doubt it would have worked as effectively.
This photo is a essentially a celebration of my 3 favourite aesthetics: the colour orange, florals and vintage vehicles- in this case, a vespa which I found parked in Melbourne’s most popular laneway food/coffee hotspot: ‘Degraves St’.
A throwback flick I found in my gallery from summer earlier this year taken at Brunswick skatepark. The enormously infamous Brunswick Bowl is reminiscent of early 90’s transition skating and revives that very same thrill being almost vertical. Evidently, It is as fun as it is to skate as it is to graffiti.
Even during the daytime, Chinatown Melbourne is quite the attraction. My eyes were drawn toward the overhead lanterns which, day or night, are always so amazing to look at. Chinatown always seems to be bustling and busy which is why I think its quite an accurate emulation of China itself. The asian style banners which glow neon in the night time, further authenticate the experience
I must have a thing for photos of old vehicles because this one is one of my personal favourites. I got strong 1950’s vibes from this car when as soon as I caught glimpse of the sun glaring off the burgundy bonnet. the colour contrast within this photo was amazing and is one of the main reasons I thought it would be such a great addition. Hopefully one day I have the privilege of owning a car like this.
When I peered through the window of this dollar store, the religiously themed statues instantly captured my attention. They seemed like extremely overzealous items to be advertised in the windows of such a cheap shop. I always find dollar stores to be so fascinating because of the insane variety of trinkets they contain- theres everything from statues of religious figures to bootleg merchandise.
It was a dark winter night and I couldn’t see much except the lights of buildings and the insides of lit up offices. Towering above all however, was this enormous white cross which glowed amidst the darkness. I’ve always enjoyed photos of churches, especially at night- theres just something about their vintage architecture and gothic feel which is so aesthetically appealing.
