February’s Street Chair
Taking it all in, Newcastle, Australia
Taking it all in. It is not just seeing what’s around you but truly absorbing the experiences, and the feelings these experiences trigger. Because being conscious at all times is not tiring, it’s enlivening. These images are some of shiftazine’s summer moments at the Roller Door Cafe in Islington, Newcastle Australia.

Detail, detail, detail
This image is a perfect example of how many details are waiting for us on the street. These funny little metal stools with their quirky leg design. The odd wooden table / cupboard that compliments the stools. And then there is the divine colour scheme of the blues, blue greys, browns, biscuits tones, and warm greys that is out of this world. It’s all there.
The street is full of wonderful markings of all kinds which can be found on the tarmac. Strange little drawings of faces or stick figures, odd graphics and symbols related to some road works in the area. A piece of poetry of a kind, which brings an instant smile to one’s lips. This piece was found in a back lane in Surry Hills Sydney.

Raise the pink lantern
A block of flats at dusk. Nothing remarkable unless you look at the rhythm of the elements, then it’s a painting, a modernist image. It’s an Edward Hopper. Its beautiful. But you have to look past the surface. It’s all there.
