As we drove down to Mandurah to visit relatives for a belated Easter lunch we spotted a purple Ford Falcon with an interesting custom license plate.



I assume his passenger seat was filled with mobile phone credit vouchers and Justin Bieber posters to attract teenagers to his awesome ride. I’ve seen some interesting license plates in the past, some funny while others a mix of stupidity and the letter ‘U’, but I’ve never seen a plate that clearly is not cool. Imagine being a father of a teenage daughter and ‘R U 6TEEN’ turns up on your door step?

Ding dong.
“Hey old man, I’m here to pick up your sixteen year old daughter in my awesome car of awesomeness.”
“OMGZ! Isn’t his car, like, sooooo coooool, Dad?”
Loads shotgun.

What’s the most offensive, funniest, stupidest or tackiest license plate you’ve seen?

One Movement 2010

kitta tahlia one movement

I managed to score a ticket to the One Movement festival in October, thanks to @lukecaporn and @KatBellaVanilla. Punters flocked to the music festival to dance like hipsters, drink sippy wine attached to lanyards, eat gourmet donuts and watch various bands perform over three days and nights. Sunday had a mellow feel, mainly due to the ‘sandwiches’ everyone was consuming, but also because it was a cold rainy day and everyone was too cold to be a douche bag. I spent my time hanging out with friends and taking photos with my bashed around pink bits (P&S Canon IXUS80 IS) while at the festival.

Wheels & Dollbaby

I attended the Wheels & Dollbaby show during Perth Fashion Festival 2010, excited to see the latest collection from local designer Melanie Greensmith. The Wheels & Dollbaby fashion parade is one of the most popular events on the Perth Fashion Festival calendar and is always an instant sell-out. I wasn’t on media, so I decided to leave the 7D at home and take the G10 instead, but my inner photographer couldn’t resist taking a few quick shots while enjoying the sexy show.

The section I was seated in was close to the band, we were given earplugs for protection, which gave the area a music-pit feeling. “Free earplugs?! That’s the strangest thing I’ve seen in the goodie bag so far!” remarked one confused lady seated a row behind me.

Highlights include the gorgeous Tiah Delaney opening and closing the show in leopard print ensembles, the models wearing cute pink robes that everyone instantly wanted to sell a kidney for, girly gingham dresses, dastardly denim, hot leather shorts and the guest appearance of Leah Wood, the daughter of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie, performing ‘Call Me’ with Mark McEntee. It was a perfect mix of fashion and rock and roll.

I’ll have one of everything, please.

Popsicle Launch

I was invited to the Popsicle launch party on a very cold night at PICA during the Perth Fashion Festival 2010, I took some social shots of the fashionable crowd and designers while sipping on champagne and meeting photographers and bloggers.

Last year Popsicle popped up on a bus, this year it could be found OnWilliam in a duo of shipping containers packed with emerging fashion, jewellery, art & other goodies. The event featured work of various Western Australian designers – such as Lonely 8-Bit Heroes, Bad Hair Mountain, Peppermint Milk, Little Gracie, Kiss Me Quick, Prufrock, Leah Tarlo, Bo Ra, White Square, Lovers and Dreamers, Heart City Design, Ping Pong Diplomacy and Love is my Velocity – it reminded me of a very funky looking pastel tea party.

I wonder how Popsicle will pop-up next year? I vote for bouncy castle.
