005 | Stick-men detail, NGV International Foyer, St Kilda Rd

July 30, 2010

This shot combines two of my favourite features of the NGV International; the stick-men sculptures in the foyer, and the water wall.

004 | Chain-gang

Chain-gang, Stewart St, Richmond

I loved the balance of this composition.  The scrappiness of the many old paint jobs, throw-ups, and tags contrasted with the crisp outline of the… I don’t know, faces I guess.  Also the colours on the wall form a pleasing gradient from rusty red through to black.

Unfortunately the peons of the hackneyed City of Yarra have since sand-blasted this wall so that all might know the wonder of a life undecorated.

003 | Rickshaws

Richshaws Outside the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, George Town

A (not actually particularly) recent holiday to Malaysia presented a wealth of photo-ops.  This mansion, owned by ‘the Rockefeller of the East’, was amazingly restored and appointed.  The rickshaws were a great example of when you find a scene that is already a photo, just waiting for a frame.

Refracted

A crap photo of something becomes a cool picture of nothing.  I love texture-orientated shots, and water is a very accommodating medium when it comes to catching some cool, abstract images.

Daisuke Jigen Greets the Sun

In the beginning there was Daisuke Jigen, and he paused for a smoke as the sun rose.
