Wordless Wednesday: More of Melbourne

Melbourne is a curious mix of funky street colour, European alleyways and classy boutiques.  It’s happening. Melbourne’s streets hold a broad range of people: some in converse sneakers, others in heels; some walk fast, others simply stand.  There are paper shopping bags, cigarettes and mobile phones.  Sunglasses everywhere. Coffee, pizza, chocolate. The racket of busking lurks around the corner. Some alleyways are dim, even during the day, with bright paint lighting the way. The sound of feet. Chatter. Laughter. More coffee.  Things that may not be considered beautiful, can be. Are. Like a dusty wall, or peeling paint. Like clashes of colour and the blend of noise.

Hello Melbourne.

Armed with iPhones and a camera, my friend and I explored Melbourne city.

    We love Melbourne – before my kids were born… or at least the boys – we’d venture in at least once a month…. My big girl is so excited to start some more mummy time in the city! Glad you loved it! xx

    I love that city! So much personality and an endless choice of adventures to be had. Great memories of catching trams into the city with the kids and playing in the many gardens scattered around the city.

    I love Melbourne so much! I can’t wait until the little man is a bit older and we can go back again. I loved exploring it again through your photos, thanks for sharing x

    Oh I’m so envious, I just went straight between airport and conf and didn’t wander at all. Too quick! Good to see some of the real Melbourne through your eyes and lens.

    I lived in Melbourne for a year and I do miss it dreadfully although at least it is comparable to some of my favorite cities in Europe!

    I’ll say it again Kell, I love the way you look at the world! We went into Brisbane last weekend, and I had such fun capturing all the different things there were to see. Love the shoe photo! x
