No, they’re not real nudes. Seriously.
It’s nothing more than advertising artwork on public transport. Look at the black and blue sign and it’ll give you a clue as to what I’ve shot here!
This shot of an advertising hoarding on the side of a Melbourne tram was taken in 2007. I drove past the tram, did a double-take at the artwork on its side, then continued to drive ahead to make up ground before I parked on a side street.
I then sprinted down Dandenong Road to a nearby tram stop and shot about eight or nine frames as the tram slowed down. This was an ad for Deep Spring mineral water and the campaign was “Back to Nature”. I guess these trams must have turned a few heads throughout the duration of the campaign!
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K10D, using an 18-70mm lens. F7.1, 1/160 sec, ISO 400, focal length 26mm.
