Photographers are often reminded to diversify their camera angles by looking upwards to capture imposing perspectives of buildings or majestic canopies of trees. Whilst this is essentially a terrific suggestion especially in Melbourne, where we have many architecturally beautiful and interesting buildings and gardens; (the remnants of a late 19th century ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ that managed to escape modern developers wrecking balls), I’m going to suggest doing the opposite for a change.
Look what happens when you look down on a sunny day in Melbourne, more specifically in the northern suburb of Northcote, where there seems to be a proliferation of picket fences and small iron gates.
Shadow is king! Often taken for granted, we more often than not, just don’t see them when we’re out and about.
