Medium: Digital Photograph/ Photoshop
Location: Melbourne, Australia
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Melbourne Australia. I will always have a solid place in my heart for this city for multiply reasons. Melbourne is where I was reunited with my childhood best friend who had moved there years prior. This is the city where I was given the opportunity to study with great scholars at the Uni of Melbourne. However, what I loved most about Melbourne was its bohemian feel. This is definitely a city that embraces and thrives on art.
These photographs which I took are of a local beach about 10 minutes from the city named St. Kilda's Beach. I manipulated the photograph to make it look more dramatic and dark. I added additional photographs of underwater creatures that I took at the Melbourne Aquarium. Australia is known for the deadliest jellyfish.
As the weather begins to get colder and the days short, I am reminded of my life when I lived in Australia... 10 minutes from a beach... Though I do not live there now, this city will always be a part of me.
