Enthralling experience

I just wanted to share this photo of friends – both chef and his audience – snapped yesterday toward the end of our epic four hour or so lunch at Ormeggio. Alex being his usual man-mountain self, and the rapt expressions on the upwards tilted faces around him. Had I not been behind the camera myself, …

SAB / 80

Besides (and beside, well, opposite) the bicycle rack, I also found much to behold in the form of RMIT’s Building 80, official name Swanston Academic Building. Another eye-catching facade all geometric, jagged, triangular shapes and not a straight wall in sight. I’d guess that the equally colourful stack of blocks close by was student accommodation. I …

RMIT Design Hub, close/up

I had seen the building from the cab last Friday night as our taxi made its way from the airport to the hotel on Exhibition Street. I resisted the urge to call out “Stop the car!” instead I rubber-necked as we whizzed past, eyes as wide as the round disks comprising the facade of RMIT Design Hub. …

A few from Queen Victoria Market

I don’t really eat doughnuts. Of course I did used to enjoy them when I was younger – I remember it being such a treat whenever my mother brought one or two of those home, and I’d get a quarter or a half. (Siblings are good y’all. They teach you early how to share.) That was back …

Laneway to love

A quiet moment in a non-famous laneway. I don’t know where this one was… We were wandering around after (or was it before) we got to the Queen Victoria Markets, when I spotted the spray paint. The usual “Stop, I’ve got to get this,” and fifteen minutes of waiting around for yours truly. I’m really …

Rack

This bicycle rack, near RMIT’s Building 80. Earlyish last Saturday morning. No bicycles perched here. A giant, rigid slinky. I didn’t crawl through it, but I wanted to. So I took this photo instead.

Lost in the laneways

I didn’t realise it at the time but it seems I gravitated toward faces in those laneways. Some of these shots were taken in Hosier Lane, while the others were not; in fact, I don’t know where I was exactly but I think are two other locations featured here, besides Hosier. Lost in random laneways, but …

Monochrome Melbourne

One of the first places we stopped at on Saturday morning just after 8am was Pellegrini’s on Bourke Street. Because we’d seen it the night before and it looked like one of those places you simply had to visit in order to be able to say, “I went to Melbourne,” and mean it. And when M. …
