Melbourne, the city of street photography.

I travel a lot and I take photos wherever I go. The 65000 photos on my desk top are testament to that and I am checking each one as I put the files into a larger data base.

As I do that I come across trips that were significant both emotionally and photography wise.

This trip was to attend a quilting event, but I am sharing the way I look at things through the lens – always with an eye to create textile art.

I love to capture the light, the textures of a place, the spontaneous images of street photography and the urban wildlife if I can. It certainly makes for an all round expose of the place I visited. The images remain for ever.

There is always the old

And then there is the new and the textures are just as exciting.

It’s really exciting to explore the city visually. Loo up, look up.
