    Great textures! :-)

  • Hi Linda, the textures didn’t really appear until I made it B+W, but that’s what I was trying to accentuate. Thanks heaps, love to hear from you.

    WOWEEEEE!!! I love the old and new right next to each other……the textures are so great, the composition is phenomenal. Makes me want to know more!

  • Hi Robin, than you. Yes the objects in the window had me fascinated. Notice the stacked-up soda fountains up the top (what the!) and the dipsey light shade – I can’t even remember what the shop (store) was. Probably overpriced second-hand stuff.

    I love that you cropped this into a square. I see most compositions in square format so this is right up my alley ( do you have alleys?) lol Excellent BW image!

  • You like square too! Why do so many people think it has to be 1:1.5 or some other aspect, I don’t understand that. For me a photo has the shape that the subject dictates – the elements determine the proportions. So glad you like square. And yes we have alleys – in fact we drive into our garage via a back alley (mostly called lanes or laneways, here). They are paved in big bluestone (basalt) blocks. Melbournians love their alleys/lanes. Thanks for your comment.

    beautiful and full of appealing elements – this scene says ‘Paris’ to me before it says ‘Melbourne’!

  • Thanks Georgie, it does look like a European city doesn’t. Maybe that’s why I was attracted to the subject. It’s in Brunswick Street Fitzroy, somewhere between Rose and Argyle. Near BSG :—)

    uber cool, love that you processed it in b&w

  • Hi Aart, thank you. There are so many cool things in Brunswick Street, you never know what you’ll find if you look hard enough. Only two days to go, though ;—D

    oh yes, don’t I know it and now we are down to only one day……..grrrrrrrrrrr

  • And then there was…well…a 2nd chance! The eye of a photographer, misses nothing. Provided they are open, of course ;—D)

  • 22 hours to be precise. The consolation prize won’t be too bad.

    excellent work :))

  • Thanks Christine. Isn’t it strange how the simplest things that you pass everyday can make interesting photos in B+W. I just love that. The urban landscape is so interesting.

    J’adore!

  • Merci Jean-Luc. Croyez-vous qu’il ressemble à Paris? Je finirai le voir l’année prochaine pour moi – cela a été 32 ans.
