Suzuki Night Market (Queen Victoria), Melbourne

I am now a South Yarra resident.  It’s a gorgeous suburb nestled between Albert Park and the Botanical Gardens.  A few tram stops from St Kilda and a few foot steps from Melbourne CBD.  Locals have told me it’s the Kensington of Melbourne, from what I saw on my stroll to the supermarket today I would have to agree with them.  I felt like I was in a scene of Notting Hill Down Under (someone should make this film).  I feel very lucky to be here.
Today, after a lovely chicken curry cooked by myself, Kayleigh and I went to the night market at the top of Elizabeth Street.  We were very good and didn’t spend a single penny, but we enjoyed wandering around taking snaps nonetheless.  The market was filled with people, food, trinkets, clothes and promise.
I apologise for the appalling quality of some of the pictures, I had two glasses of wine with my dinner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On our way home we stumbled across these two fellows.

 

 

My mind still can’t place Christmas and warm weather in the same mental box, it just feels wrong.

Sophia Wallace

I recently discovered artist Sophia Wallace when someone shared photos of her Cliteracy 100 Natural Laws exhibition on Facebook.  I won’t be able to visit the exhibition with it being overseas but I certainly think it’s inspiring, interesting and well worth sharing – hence this blog post.

 

All images are taken from her Facebook page – here.
The quotes I find most interesting are ‘Imagine if boys were taught only about their testicles without reference to the penis’, ‘Teen pregnancy adds insult to injury, are girls having pleasurable sex at 14? Doubt it’ and finally ‘A man would never be expected to get off through sex acts that ignored his primary sexual organ’.

I love works of art that shock you into thinking about things and encourage you to question your own opinions and perceptions, Sophia Wallace achieves that wonderfully here.

Here is another extract from the series I found via Pinterest:

I will definitely be keeping up with her work in the future.
