Green Check Shirt and Chinos at Art Month Sydney.

I do love this gentleman's outfit spotted last night at Roslyn Oxley Gallery which was also host to the Art Month after party for Paddington. There is a lovely large scale photo silkscreen show on by David Noonan. But back to this outfit pictured, perfect for a relaxed and casual night out looking at art, Green Check Shirt, Chinos and brown loafers, a great men's look.

Good News Story - At Central..

Although I did not post anything about this on Street Fashion Sydney, and I probably should have.. I did put up the shot below on my Instagram and Facebook pages. A couple of weeks ago walking through the Devonshire Street (Sydney Rail Pedestrain (Train)) tunnel at Central which normally has a few buskers doing their thing; I found these notices instead!

Begging, Busking; Blah Blah Blah.. Not permitted.. By order Sydney Trains...
Well that was a real WTF moment for me. Like them or not they certainly add something to your walk down this long pedestrian tunnel and I for one think it's something good; even if I don't like the songs or pieces they are playing; I am glad they are there.


However a Good News Story I promised and a Good News Story you shall have. Tonight on my way to a show at X88 gallery by train and a short walk through the 'tunnel' while seeing no buskers I saw none of the (no) Begging Busking signs, they were ALL gone! I did however see this post-it note which I don't think I would have seen if I was not looking for the nasty no-no signs. #CHOOSEHOPESYDNEY

And then after seeing POSTAL by Stuart Silcox at X88. On my way back through the 'Tunnel' I saw this dude, Marc White playing guitar in the tunnel! All I can say is I was very pleased. And after a small contribution I was able to get this shot. Closer to Devonshire Street exit there was a flautist playing classical pieces. Perfect!

Bling it on - Mardi Gras Ready Shorts that Sparkle!

Well while these shorts may not be 'Just for Mardi Gras' as they were spotted yesterday over in Chippendale Sydney; I do love this outfit, perfect summer shorts (perfect tan) with a clubbing bling sparkle to them in a great green with flower motif, white halter-neck top and a denim jacket just in case the weather turns. Love those oversize sunnies too. Ready or nor? Definitely Mardi Gras ready!

Fitness; Is the new Fashion.

OK so summer is officially over here in Australia although it should remain comfortably not-cold for a while yet. Plenty of time for outdoor activities. Of course if you are an outdoors activity, fitness type you probably don't care much about the weather anyway (cause you are just going to do it); and maybe not so much about fashion... or do you? I have been thinking for quite a long while now that Fitness, all that stuff around going to the gym, running, working out, you know, fitness.. well that is the new fashion. Fashion has a long long history of shaping our bodies and since the 90s and porn as fashion culture which is still going on, thanks Terry Richardson.. (irony and sarcasm) the clothes are almost all gone anyway. Fashion without clothes does not really leave a lot of options; and if you have nothing on.. you probably still want to look great! So its all mega gyms and skins 2XU sort of stuff; or Chanel tracky dacks, Karl how could you!!! You said ".." oh never mind.

Pool Collective Blows Ron Jeremy in New book by Ingvar Kenne..

"The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing"..

It is exceedingly rare for photographers to publicly admit that the client didn't like their work. But that said it must be virtually unheard of for the photographer and his agency to decide to turn their rejected work into an exhibition, a book, a bloody good launch party and some great 9 1/2 inch hot dogs, the 'Ron Jeremy'. Is that the sound of someone saying 'F*#K You' without moving their lips; I do think it is so.  Congratulations guys, more solidarity on the photography front is a great thing in these interesting times we call professional photography!

Art Sniffers - The New Trend?

I can't say exactly why but while I was out at this exhibition opening at the 'new' Chalk Horse Gallery, William Street Darlinghurst, for some reason I was suddenly possessed by the urge to start a whole new blog called Art Sniffers! Was it the ear-wax aroma of the fresh white paint that had set me off? Was it the artworks themselves? Well I do like this show.. Was it the windowless underground, basement location? I am not really sure but; if you look closely at the pictures it almost looks like the art patrons bending forward for a closer look.. well they could almost be sniffing the art! And if you have ever painted in big smears of oil paint; you will know that art sniffing is pretty heady stuff.
