Melbourne is the sort of city that people find themselves wanting to return to again and again, with many deciding to settle here and call it home.
I’ve lived here my entire life yet love nothing more than heading into the city with a mate and my camera and just wandering around for hours, chatting and exploring. It’s easy to find yourself drawn to the charming red-brick allies you didn’t know existed or seated inside a cosy cafe sipping on a hot chai latte to escape the cold.
There’s just something about this place…
Shona recently bought a nearly 50-year-old Olympus Trip 35 film camera, so we took it out for a spin to a) make sure it worked and b) figure out the old school settings!
I’m normally the one behind the camera taking photos of others, but roles were reversed today. We did a shoot for the Unleashed Women initiative, which I was so happy I could help with.
The purchase of just a single $35 t-shirt will educate 13 amazing mothers about locally available nutritious food that they can feed their bubbies to prevent malnutrition in 3rd world regions.
If you have a few more smackeroonies to spare, getting 15 t-shirts to dole out to your mates or colleagues will train one elected woman in India to be an effective local council member and ban child marriage in her village. Getting 60 t-shirts could provide 16 women with a Microfinance loan and financial literacy training so they can start a small business, earn an income and support their families.
We were pretty tuckered out after alley-hunting so headed over to Brother Baba Budan on Little Bourke for a caffeine pick me up.
