the sham.

petersham, sydney, 2011
I swear I had only been in the area for - oh - about 5 minutes and I had taken 20 shots. 
It was 9am on Monday morning and i was on the train to Petersham to meet up with my mate Mel for the start of our journey to The Nations capital - aka Canberra - when I suddenly noticed a quirky space across the road that begged to be photographed. 

Petersham, or The Sham as the locals affectionately call it, is a brilliant suburb for anyone with a camera and a love of eclectic stores, quirky architecture and graffitied walls, rendered by a multitude of nationalities. 

All the inner west suburbs are like that, and if you ever feel like a stroll of your own, I highly recommend Marrickville or Petersham as a starting point.... with a quick pit-stop at Salon Bim cafe for coffee, and a sit and stare session in their lovely big corner window ...

It's all about the paste up at the moment. Ive seen some fantastic nostalgic ones recently,
like this nifty little number {above}

Ode to the record! Now this feels nostalgic...

Yep records are dead. So is film, just ask Kodak. Cx
