GLEN

THIS PORTRAIT OF GLEN AND HIS DOG REMINDS ME OF SOMETHING YOU’D SEE ON HUMANS OF NEW YORK. I’D IMAGINE THE CONVERSATION GOING SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF…

ME: WHAT’S YOUR DOG’S NAME?

GLEN: COURAGE

ME: AND WHY’S THAT?

GLEN: BECAUSE HE SAVED ME FROM A FIRE… TWICE. AND HE HAS CANCER.

RACHEL

IT SORT OF GOES WITHOUT SAYING, BUT I’VE REALISED THE LONGER THE GAP BETWEEN WHEN I TAKE A PHOTO, TO TIME I UPLOAD AND CAPTION IT, THE HARDER IT IS TO ARTICULATE HOW I ACTUALLY FELT ABOUT THE WHOLE THING. I GUESS THAT’S WHY GUYS LIKE THE SARTORIALIST AND HUMANS OF NEW YORK USE SHORT CUTS LIKE ‘ON THE STREETS…’ OR ‘SEEN ON…’ ETC. SMART MOVE. MAYBE I SHOULD DEVELOP MY OWN LITTLE “I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING TO SAY” SCHTICK, TO HELP ME ALLEVIATE SOME OF THE PRESSURE OF TRYING TO THINK UP SOMETHING QUIRKY AND ORIGINAL TO SAY ABOUT EACH SUBJECT. MAYBE SOMETHING LIKE ‘SNAPPED THIS SHIT ON…’? OR I COULD TRY SOME SUBLIMINAL SELF-PROMOTION/BRAND REINFORCEMENT WITH ‘COLLECTED AT…’ AND SO ON. I’LL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT. ANYWAYS, NOT TO DEVIATE FURTHER, RACHEL WAS A GOOD SPORT, I REMEMBER THAT! MORE SHOTS ON THE MELBOURNE CENTRAL FACEBOOK PAGE.

ILIHAN

I’VE BEEN SPENDING A FAIR BIT OF TIME AROUND MELBOURNE CENTRAL RECENTLY, TAKING PHOTOS FOR A LITTLE SIDE PROJECT (MORE ON THAT LATER). I GOT THIS SHOT OF ILIHAN, WHOSE JACKET AND SCARF COMBO REMINDED ME OF SOME OF THE SOPHISTICATED OLD ITALIAN DUDES FROM THE SARTORIALIST. A $30 OP-SHOP PURCHASE FROM OVER A DECADE AGO. WELL PLAYED MY FRIEND.

ANDY & JASON

A FEW MONTHS AFTER FIRST MOVING TO MELBOURNE, I PUT UP A PHOTO OF JASON WITH A CAPTION THAT SAID SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF HOW CREATIVE-MINDED GUYS LIKE HIM WERE THE REASON I WAS SO PSYCHED TO BE HERE. FAST FORWARD 2 YEARS AND NOW JASON AND HIS GOOD FRIEND ANDY ARE RUNNING HILLVALE, A SUPER SLICK PHOTO LAB LOCATED OFF SYDNEY ROAD IN BRUNSWICK. THANKS TO THESE GUYS, ANALOGUE PHOTOGRAPHERS ACROSS THE CITY NO LONGER NEED TO PAY EXORBITANT FEES TO MICHAEL’S, NOR SHOULD THEY WORRY ABOUT BIG W FUCKING UP THEIR SCANS ANYMORE. CHECK OUT MY FILM BLOG FILM AS PHUCK TO SEE THE CRISPY RESULTS OF THEIR HIGHLY EFFICIENT SERVICE.

ACCIDENTALLY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE PHOTOS I’VE EVER TAKEN. I’LL LOOK AT IT AGAIN TOMORROW JUST TO CHECK IT’S NOT SOME TIREDNESS BASED DELUSION, BUT YEAH, I THINK I LIKE IT.

SOME OF THE COOLEST PEOPLE AT SEOUL FASHION WEEK WERE THE ONES WHO DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT. I’M TELLING YOU, YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT STREET STYLE IS UNTIL YOU SEE SOME OLD KOREAN FOLK. THOSE GUYS SIMPLY JUST DON’T GIVE A FUCK.

SO JUST OVER 2 MONTHS AGO I POSTED THIS PHOTO WITH A CAPTION THAT 1) PRAISED MY GOOD FORTUNE AT HAVING ARRIVED IN SOUTH KOREA JUST IN TIME FOR THE CIRCUS THAT WAS SEOUL FASHION WEEK AND 2) MENTIONED THAT OYSTER MAGAZINE HAD FEATURED SOME OF MY SHOTS ON THEIR WEBSITE. NOW, SEEING AS THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE NICEST PHOTOS I’VE EVER TAKEN, I WAS HOPING FOR SOME RELATIVELY GOOD FEEDBACK ON THIS PLATFORM. ALAS, NO ONE SEEMED TO GIVE A SHIT. I’VE DECIDED THEREFORE TO TRY POSTING THIS IMAGE AGAIN, IN THE HOPE THAT IT MIGHT GAIN A LITTLE BIT MORE LOVE THAN THE LAST TIME. IF THE RECEPTION IS STILL POOR, I’LL JUST SWALLOW MY PRIDE AND ACCEPT THAT THE GODS OF TUMBLR HAVE SPOKEN.

WHEN EDITING, I END UP STARING AT MY PHOTOS FOR SO LONG THAT BY THE TIME I’M DONE I CAN’T EVEN TELL IF THE SUBJECT IS STANDING UP STRAIGHT ANYMORE. PROBABLY NOT A GOOD SIGN. SHIT LIKE HEAD TILTING DOESN’T MAKE THIS JUDGING PROCESS ANY EASIER.
