color me melb

 

 

naturally every space has a color theme of it's own. some cities jump out in this regard more than others. when i first came to the southern hemisphere i was struck by the difference in the quality of light. in los angeles we have so much smog which diffuses the air and makes for spectacular sunsets. in new zealand [when it's not overcast] the light in contrast seems so stark and strong. in melbourne the weather was quite warm and the light was again different. the color palette that emerged surprised me- bright greens and soft pastels. though it was late summer, to me the feeling was distinctly spring.

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...
