“The genius thing…”
Melbourne September 2016 – Sydney August 2014 (4 photos)
Wandering around Melbourne recently, I was walking up this street when I happened to look back and see the quote painted on the wall. I instantly knew I had to stop and wait for a couple to come walking up the street. Ten minutes later I got this shot. I would have preferred an elderly couple to come walking by instead, but no luck. I gave up and walked away. Such is life.
Over at the Weekly Photo Challenge, this week’s theme is Nostalgia.
So for my post-break post, how about a nostalgic look back at a few previous photos that individually suit this theme?
“I’m a Barbie girl in a Barbie world.”
Nostalgia for some. A nightmare for others.
“This is my home.”
The urban developers have been busy since I took this photo. If there were a sign today, it would say “this used to be my home”.
“Memories, of the way we were.”
The work represents the artist Kathleen Berney, a child of refugee boat people, on a slippery dip in this exact location in 1953. Childhood memories slide in and out of consciousness.
