Recently I had the privilege of photographing some ‘local hangouts’ for TBC Magazine – a Brisbane quarterly street press publication. After a few panic moments about how I didn’t photograph ‘hangouts’ (unless you’re me, and hangout photographing industrial areas?! Somehow I don’t think that counts…) I decided to put my spin on it and photograph local restaurants and coffee shops that had great wall art. You know, since I love a colourful wall, right?! It turned out to be harder than I thought – light was inevitably terrible, or people were sitting in my picture (how DARE they?!), and it also meant I drank a hell of a lot of coffee. The latter may be seen as a positive, but I get the shakes if I drink too much – which isn’t actually all that great when you’re holding a camera. There’s plenty of places on my shortlist that I ran out of time to visit – I’ll be drinking coffee for some time yet so there’s a possibility this series could continue for a while!
If you like your coffee or meal accompanied by a bit of colour, you should sure go and check these places out:
Atticus Finch Cafe, Paddington • facebook
Chno Espresso, Newstead
