Photographer's Note

25 JULY 2004, NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA, MELBOURNE

No, I didn't apply some cheap photoshop effect to this image; it is 100% true from life...

At the National Gallery of Victoria an exhibition is currently held displaying some of the best impressionist artwork from around the world, aptly titled The Impressionists.

Inspired by the artwork hung in this landmark building, I tried to find my own impression of this otherwise chilly Sunday afternoon and came up with this perspective. We're looking out onto St. Kilda Road from the inside of the NGV's famous raining window-- a glass panel that drizzles water. It's a Melbourne icon that a whole new generation of Melburnians can now enjoy after three years of restoration.

This really was a great place for an afternoon's worth of street photography; so many people out and about.

Technical: As I said this is 100% real-- no tacky photoshop filter manipulations, just the usual post processing.
