hello.melb

 

i like so many things about melbourne- the art, culture, food... but one of the best things about it is the intersection of beautiful public spaces and small intimate alleyways. both seem to coexist side by side and only by walking around the city does one get a sense of the shifting scale. at one moment you are sitting in an alleyway packed with cafes. around the corner the moving image museum offers expansive views of a public park. and in between there are throngs of people. i already want to go back...

 

ottowa via la

 

i took this photo while out with the la lightChasers some time ago from the rooftop of a parking lot in downtown. when we got there, there was already a group of people on the far side of the roof shooting what appeared to be some sort of promo spot. the actors were dressed in fur boots and parkas in the middle of summer! as it turns out, they were shooting for something that was supposed to appear to be in ottowa against the backdrop of this building. i never thought about a resemblance between ottowa and los angeles, but i guess that's the magic of the movies...
