One of the things I love about stepping out in a big city is the fabulous window dressing you see.

When I was in Tokyo this mens shoe store display caught my eye, it’s deceptively simple but carefully and artfully arranged.

The suspended writing (a play on pinstripes?) gives a sense of movement and the nonchalant lean of the umbrella is positioned just so that you can almost sense an imaginary hand resting on the handle.

I photographed a Melbourne window display back in 2014 that also used script in a clever way, appearing in reverse you needed to look at the shadow to read it.

Anyone care to have a go at deciphering what the scribbly man says?!

 

 

The Florist & The Fairy

Back in May when I was doing the market I was approached by Janita – a florist  who was interested in stocking my cards in her shop at Bellerive.

I have had a sweet spot for flower shops ever since I met my friend who worked in and then owned one of her own. They always catch my eye wherever I am and I have photos of florist windows and displays interspersed throughout typical holiday snaps from Melbourne, Paris and beyond.

It will come as no surprise my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe is at home in one and recently I dropped in some more stock and took some photos… so come and have a peek inside Janita Preshaw’s Beautiful Flowers Gifts and Garden.
