Melbourne 365: Day 5

I have found myself snagged on the world of green.

I left a small thread of me there, caught on the edge of the wilderness,

Somewhere between the mountains and the forest.

And now I can still feel it

Every now and then I catch myself on a memory

And the thread, stretched tight to where I am now, 

Hums and sings, and the sound calls me away to the other place

Where I belong.

Melbourne 365: Day 4

We stitch our lines across the sky, dividing it into tiny patches, blocking out the blue with our glass and concrete. 

We draw the buildings tight, firming the sutures. 

And just like that, it all disappears. Day and night. Light and dark. Sun and rain. And still we pull the threads tighter and tighter. 

Waiting for our wounds to heal.

Melbourne 365: Day 1

Hello. As you may be aware, a while ago now I undertook a 365 project, and made it through the year. I enjoyed it immensely – I learnt a great deal more about photography, post-processing, writing, and myself as a photographer and artist. I was sure, coming off the end of that project, that I had established something – momentum, possibly – that would carry me through continued art making.

And for a while, it did.

And then I stopped.

Oh sure, I moved to another state, began a new (demanding) job, and found myself in an entirely different landscape to the one I knew how to see. But really, that’s just life, and I can’t blame a lack of artistic drive on life…

So now, I want to start moving again (photographically speaking!). I figure I could wait until I feel comfortable enough in my location, familiar enough with a way of seeing this new environment, and then start photographing again. Or, I could use photography to become familiar with my new location. So let’s give that a go – let’s return to the 365 project. Version 2. This time, rather than constraints of equipment, I’m going to go for constraints of location.

For the next 365 days, I’ll show you what I see of my new city. 365 views of this wonderful, welcoming, intriguing city of Melbourne.

Let’s start here, and now, with day 1. Hope you’ll stick around for the next 364…



Here’s to new beginnings…
