merry christmas and all the best for 2012!

Merry Christmas to all!
It's a very busy and sometimes very stressful time of the year, however there's also plenty of time for fun and games. Apart from the occasional hectic thunder storm the weather has been pretty good. Meaning for a lot of people minimal little light clothes and plenty of eye candy for the style hungry. We shot this post on Friday, it was a beautiful day. However due to christmas shopping it was so busy in the city, making it much more difficult to find the select identities we search for.
I'm flying to Tokyo on wednesday so I will bring you some photos of some very inspiration individuals.
See you in Tokyo and have a happy new year!

Happy Birthday Jesus/Merry Christmas!
What a year we've had! Starting the blog has been a great experience and we've been so lucky to meet so many lovely people on the streets. Even though we were nervous starting out, we've persisted and created what we set out to.
Thankyou for all your comments, follows and support, it's much appreciated!
As Michael flies out to Japan, I head to Sydney. It's great how the summer holidays encourage many of us to travel and get away.
I wish you all a safe and relaxing few weeks, see you in the New Year.

This was our first ever interaction with a flash mob. We had only ever heard of them on youtube. Although this one was pretty small it was still really impressive. They had a good sing and dance and then faded back into the crowd. Good on them!
M.
How good are beards at the moment. Every man and his dog seems to be working a large beard these days, and I have to say I love it. This guys entire look worked well for me, he had a bit of Bon Iver about him and maybe a little Nick Cave, and even perhaps a little I don't know who I am. But fuck it, I like those contradictions. 
M.

I think our new favorite place to shoot is Flinders Lane. It has really nice light and a really cultured feel about it. I saw this guy jump out of a nice car and asked if I could take his photo. He said yes pretty quickly before his agent ran up to find out what was going on. He was at ease when I assured him I was absolutely nobody! 
Nice shirt, well fitted and nice hair.
M.

As on every nice day out shooting we constantly fight the urge to start drinking beers out in the sun. However I always feel guilty if I have not taken enough photos and we go for a drink. We were having a tough time on Friday though when my friend Bertie wanted an early afternoon drink the temptation was simply to much to resist. I took these photos of her outside the Carlton Club, I like them. they're very comfortable and summery.
M.

We were just about to call it a day and go home when we decided to blog for a bit longer and enjoy the evening sun. I noticed this very striking girl around the city during the day collecting money for charity. Right before going home I saw her again and thought she was worth a snap. She turned out to be a German backpacker and had a nice smile. I wanted to take her photo away from the crowds and in the shade, so she made me carry her bag for her which I thought was very cute. Good luck in Australia!
M. 

While sitting at the GPO building we saw these guys walking by. They were asking fo gold coing donations for their cause. It was a great idea to dress in this way because it drew everyone's attention towards them. I overheard them saying it was to represent the black and white population.
B.
I found this lane way off Flinders Lane the other week and knew it was the perfect spot for a photo. When this guy walked past I just knew i had to stop him. He was modest and said 'i'm only in my work uniform' but it wasn't only his clothes rather that, his hair, and attitude that really stood out. I wish I could look as individual as this at my work!
B.

We'd spied this guy earlier in the day on the streets and finally decided to stop him in Flinders Lane. So glad we did because he was so lovely and understanding about what we do. He actually has thought about starting a blog like ours, FaceHunter's and The Satorialist's. Do it was all I could say. Not only has this blog provided me with much enjoyment, i've learnt so much about my camera and approaching others. Looking forward to seeing what this guy creates in the future!
B.
For me this is a great summer look. High waisted pants, a chiffon top and lovely sandals not only look good but are comfy too. For this reason there were no questions about photographing this girl, it had to be done!
B.
When I saw this girl what first struck me was her hat. All up it was such a classic look that we don't see that often. It immediately makes me think of a summer's day in the garden or a high tea at the Windsor!

  24. The flash mob is so cool! I've never seen one either, but at the mall in my hometown, there was one, and they had to call the fire department because i guess all the people on the second floor was putting too much stress on the building. Scary! I really love these photos! Especially the girl with the high waisted pants and sheer cropped top. So cute. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog! <3

    and agreed, those two men in the monochromatic black and white are dramatic and eye-catching, good strategy!
