Australia, Melbourne

Photography tour of Fitzroy

Just a short tram ride from Melbourne’s CBD you’ll find a gem of an area filled with the artistic, music-loving types, the students, poets, foodies and bohemians. They have all found a place to belong in the leafy suburbs of Brunswick and Fitzroy where street art is plentiful and you can get completely lost wandering the hidden alleyways that weave their way around town. There are plenty of good restaurants, grungy clothing boutiques, funky music stores, quaint corner pubs and hip design markets to keep you entertained for hours. If you dig a little deeper you’ll soon discover that Fitzroy is easy to fall in love with and there’s certainly a lot to love about it.

While exploring this part of Melbourne on a typical spring day with beautiful sunshine and a lazy Sunday feel, here is what I saw…

Life & Photography

Life’s been crazy busy this past month, I can’t believe we’re already in June! Thankfully the Melbourne winter hasn’t been too cold and even though there have been lots of rainy days we’ve also had a lot of really warm sunshine come through.

I recently attended a spectacular theatre show of Don Quixote performed by The Imperial Russian Ballet Company. It was absolutely wonderful with the highest quality of ballet we’ve all come to expect of Russian dancers. Their precision and energy was so beautiful to watch, as was their ability to light up the stage with their expressive faces and graceful movement. 10/10!

Then there were the beautiful sunsets! It was actually on the night of the performance that I walked to St. Kilda beach and saw the calmest water, smooth as silk and completely still in the distance. All the people there were silent, not a single voice came to mind and there we all were admiring that beautiful and serene moment when the sun crossed over the horizon. I loved the spiritual feeling within my soul that evening.

On other days there were picnics in the backyard alongside my gorgeous black cat, who was uncharacteristically thirsty and drank straight from the tap! Then the arrival of some wonderful snail mail from new international pen-pals, days spent wrapping our Mishka Collection greeting cards/sending promo postcards, more visits to the beach, dinners with friends at funky restaurants, rediscovering local parks and the beauty in nature, and not to mention dreaming of my dream home!

Life is going at full speed and I feel like I’m barely keeping up! I’m still reminiscing about my European travel adventures, my beautiful shop and the simple days of life in Watford, but I’m grateful for all the memories created in Australia so far as well. Enjoy your week!
