My latest retro clothing purchase was a pair of vintage adidas tracksuit pants. They caught my attention during my retro shopping spree, particularly because I’m a huge fan of the colour red because aesthetically it makes for a great because it makes for a fantastic complimentary accent. They paired very nicely with my Reebok classics and the scattered rose petals topped it all off in a photo worthy moment of colour coordination.
A nice niche vintage clothing store I found tucked away down a large set of stairs. Even though it was hidden, I couldn’t miss the explosion of psychedelic colours and ‘beatnik’ clothing which was displayed on the walls. The ever so familiar smell of vintage clothing wafted through the air as well. As I entered the store to browse, I was met with a vide variety of vintage tracksuits, an assortment of stone washed Levi’s jeans and of course an assortment of grandpa sweaters and Hawaiian shirts. Overall it was a great find.
A stroll down Melbourne’s famous Swanston street had me encountering a wide variety of street art and niche clothing stalls. Perhaps the most eye catching was this fully customised, spray-painted collection of vinyls featuring tribute art for all kinds of pop culture references- everything from Mickey mouse to a personal favourite of mine- pulp fiction, made the cut.
I’m not an avid fan of the beach but this photo from last summer is a simplistic embodiment of this blog: ‘People X Places’. The black and white filter make this picture really stand out to me when scrolling through my older photos and given the upcoming season change it was even more fitting. The chipped black nail polish making a cameo also paired well aesthetically with the cigarette.
In my eventful photo hunting day in Brunswick, I came across some architectural gems showcasing the nostalgic ambience a stroll through the inner suburbs often incites. The Railway hotel located adjacent to Brunswick station embodies this with its Rustic appearance courtesy of its aged architecture.
I was strolling past the ever so familiar strip of asian grocers,convenience stores and cafes which make up one of my favourite Melbourne suburbs when I caught glimpse of the vintage architecture so synonymous with Brunswick. I love how each building is a different colour and how they line up alongside each other so seamlessly.
I was strolling through Brunswick when I came across this cute dog looking sullen and withdrawn, as he was tied to a pole outside a local cafe waiting for its owner. His eyes glowed with curiousity I pointed my camera at him. I wonder what he was thinking? nevertheless, I thought it made for a great photo in the moment to capture.
