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.

The sky was stunning that day.



Look the other direction and art appears.



In the street.












Capture the essence.






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.


Look at, Look at,

    Thank you Pam. I grew up in Melbourne and wrote all my high school exams in the Exhibition Building. I now live in Alberta, Canada and miss Melbourne. I don’t get to visit ofter so I really enjoyed your pictures.
    I took a class from you in Houston in 2010.
