Street Style at Central Station - Winter Begins Layering Wins..

Well it was a few hours to go before Winter officially began down-under when I took this picture last night. Problem is; it was more like a balmy spring night but as you can see from this picture no-one in Sydney is trusting it to stay warm and so at the moment, when heading out at night layering is the way to go - the Duffel Coat on our man and the all black ensemble topped with a leather jacket and  large and colourful scarf on our lady. Winter begins, layering wins. Photographed  at Central Station Platform 25, Sydney.

Nude Nails on the Train & other style shots from Autumn Nights..

There are always pictures that I take that for one reason or another didn't quite make it into a blog post even though I wish they had. And I do think these pictures deserve a run on Street Fashion Sydney; even if they did not quite fit with the stories on or about the time they were taken. So here they are, from painting your nails on the train, and who doesn't.. to Korean guys with their grocery shopping at Town Hall Woolies to a couple of 'No Publicity' type shots, some blurry shoes and a Camo jacket over a very nice black frock. All night shots too which is rather nice!

As we Head-On into Winter - Photography and Colour Win..

Lets face it, Summer was not that hot this year in more ways than one; so it's nice to see the colours of Summer 'working-it' for a visually more interesting Winter. And if my post-show late-night walk home last night was anything to go by Winter is pretty much upon us. Yes there will still be basics in black, wear them with style of course and you can't go wrong. But add a little colour and you will brighten more than just your own day you will be brightening other peoples worlds as well!

Green Duffel coat, mustard cable knit jumper, jeans and canvas shoes - South American weave jacket and bag with black jeans - colours of Winter.

Colourful print scarf, black tee shirt, purple and blue Adidas backpack.

Vibrant coloursed jacket, black skirt light green tights and dark green suede low cut boots - winter colours.
And while winter is nearly here, the Head On Photo Festival has certainly arrived, it's on right NOW and is going gang busters already. I started my art-week at Danks Street on Wednesday night for the Head-On Add-On show and Michael Cook's 'Hear no.. see no.. speak no..' exhibitions.

Thursday night was a look in at James Powditch at Australian Galleries, I do yes I really do love a good bit of industrial constructivism in salvaged Masonite and other industrial timber bits and pieces and colours - Painting and  a Video & some great winter fashion colour crowd at Sarah Cottier - then Floral Portraits by Hugh Stewart at Mick (the gallery), part of the Head on photo festival. And tonight is the festival launch and the Portrait prize, where it all began - see you there!
