Footy is over, office small talk is dwindling, hayfever has been debilitating Melbournians for weeks and we’ve already thought about putting our coats at the back of the closet (twice)… it’s Spring Racing Carnival time!
Boys dust off their suits and girls keep the local milliners, fashion designers and hairdressers (oh and spray tanners) in business. And we all get swept up in a mass of fascinator and filly-fueled wonder.
When it comes to fashion, Derby Day is all about black and white. So I thought I’d dabble with a little black and white photography too.
Despite initial concerns about the weather (waking up to thunderstorms prior to a day outside does not generally fill a person with happiness), it turned out to be a near-perfect day.
