Push Pin Boutique on Compton St Adelaide

A vintage style store that sells vintage fashion in Adelaide.

I think that good urban photography should have a timeless style to it. So you cannot really tell when the photo was taken. That is what I really like about this part of Adelaide for street photography.

Capturing candid, unmediated chance encounters: That is what street photography is about. I think that is what is captured here. That, and an unusual perspective.

Sometimes to make a photo seem more interesting, it is worth trying to find an unusual perspective, to make the scale of different aspects seem different, unrealistic.

Street photography is about sometimes capturing the unusual moments to tell a story. I captured this one on a hot day, it was around 45°C in Adelaide, and I was out walking. I wasn’t too interested in photos of people sweating.

The “Mall’s Balls” at night. There is something surreal about streetscapes at night, especially when they are areas that during the day are generally filled with people going about their business.

I shot this on a photowalk (by myself) in Adelaide one night just to use up some film.
