Noel Anderson’s Melbourne from my iPhone

Technology is not my thing okay.
I’m one of those dudes that is last to do everything!
Last to get a mobile, last to get a computer and last in line at the supermarket.
But, in the past decade the world around me changed…it went digital. So, I ended up buying an Apple iPhone and in doing so I instantly joined millions of tech savvy snappers around the globe. Since I purchased my iPhone, on an expensive two-year plan I might add, I’ve taken hundreds of pictures…and I’m not afraid to snap a selfie too.
In fact, I have documented the entire last five years of my life in Melbourne with my iPhone.
“One day” I thought to myself a while back…”I’m going to do something with all of these pictures.”
So, here it is…the start of my project, the world around me through the lens of my iPhone!
Life in Australia as I see it, through my eyes only, in the city of Melbourne.
Every image recorded by me with my Apple iPhone…even shameless selfies.
This first set of published photos is about mood, about feelings I had when I first moved to Melbourne. It’s an impression of my yesterday…of a creative city that never fails to inspire.
Welcome to my view of Melbourne from my iPhone.
PS. …maybe you’ll find a laneway you’ve never travelled before…

PART ONE: YESTERDAY

I saw an alley in Melbourne. When I went down it there was no pot of gold. I was disappointed.

Every day my life forces mt to add another person to the list of people who can kiss my fucking ass...

Everybody must have a fantasy

Everybody must have a fantasy…but why isn’t his fantasy fish and chips?


To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.

I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey but then I turned myself around


Let it go! Let it Go!
