City Walking With a New Friend

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, March 15, 2008

Went shopping in the city of Perth with Heather this morning. Wanted to take a few photos to celebrate her birthday [which was on 26th Feb]. Another amazing early autumn day. We must be the most blessed people in the world to live in this city!

Then lo and behold,… she goes strolling off with this rather tall gentleman in a dark brown suit. Managed to get a photo of her as evidence. As you can see she’s step for step with him. Heading right into St Martins Square. What can one do except post a photo 🙂

For those that missed it, these 5 ‘gentlemen’ were set in place in 2004 to celebrate Perth’s 175th foundation anniversary.

Pre-Wed Shoot #2

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, February 27, 2008

Ok couldn’t resist. Couple more favourites that struck a chord with me on Sunday’s urban shoot.  First one was inside the cafe with the architecture from across the street as a “desaturated background” – that’s the tones it was.


Now I decided to drop this one in twice just show how much difference a pic like this can be when it’s in Black and White. People will react in vastly different ways,… but for me the B&W evokes far more from the viewer than the full colour – you get to see into the portrait.

And the second is in front of the window across the street – in front of none other than the snazzy Louis Vuitton shop! Great window.  Brilliant couple. Expensive handbags in the window.  And no, despite being open for business, they didn’t offer a free bag to Melissa 😦
