I’ve been doing quite a bit of architectural photography lately (pick up the latest edition of Melbourne Kitchen & Bathroom design, my shots are all through it, woohoo!)
A shoot I did recently has made me think a lot about spaces we live in. I guess I’m getting older and liking the idea of moving out to the country and having space around me. I was told the other day that Australians occupy more space per person in their homes that any other country in the world (I haven’t checked the stats on this so don’t hold me to it!) and with that space, means power has to travel further & public transport & cycling to destinations becomes more difficult. So although I would be able to have a big vegie patch, compost and clean air in the country, is it worse off for the environment in other ways?
While I ponder the pros and cons, check out a couple of shots from this city apartment. The owner bought the staircase (yes, the staircase) in a building and turned it into an apartment! Such a great use of space – and all those stairs between the bedroom, lounge/kitchen & entry wouldn’t do the legs & butt any harm either!
