Contrast

This photo was one of my favourites because of the architectural contrast and colour contrast. The old building style of the church as well as the crosses amidst the shadows helped balance out the image. The angle at which I took the image also helped accentuate the churches presence in the photo. Churches always make for great photography and this one contrasted against the city skyline was no different.

“Built”

Or perhaps not so much? This photo of Flinders street station which is currently under construction was one of my favourites because of its simplicity and composition. The way all the construction framework lines up perfectly makes it all the more satisfying to look at.

“24/7”

A 24/7 gym once again showcasing some rustic old Melbourne architecture. With the black and white filter its hard to distinguish this from a photo of Melbourne in the 50s- a testament to how its architecture has stood the test of time. The passerby also helped balance out the elements in this photo.

“Suspended”

I was browsing some more alleyways to gather more laneway photos when I came across these shoes suspended on a bridging power line. The picture looks like it would be taken in the middle of ghetto housing projects somewhere but in reality it was in the middle of the central business district of Melbourne. I do wonder what the story is behind this one…

“Courts”

The street section of the RMIT basketball courts in Melbourne is one of the coolest places to skate filled with small smooth ledges of varying heights and an even smooth tiled surface, until of course construction began. It’s now surrounded by a cage which made for a pretty cool black and white flick of a basketball game mid-action complimented by a backdrop of modern architecture and a wall surface splattered in paint.

“Mustard”

This photography was one I snapped in probably my favourite suburb in Melbourne- Prahran. The photo itself is largely a celebration of not only one of my favourite colours, but also architecture. As you can see in my previous posts- weathered, old style buildings make for some of my favourite photos. The symmetry in this one (however unintentional) helped complete the photo for me.
