I'm not a coffee person but I can surely appreciate the art of it and if there's one thing Melbourne is known for, quality coffee would be high up on the list. The CBD is filled with cafes at every corner competing to be the best of the best. I was at FilmNeverDie Cafe when I really should have been completing assignments but spending time somewhere that has been built up upon a community of not only coffee lovers but photography enthusiasts and hobbyists was so much more appealing. Gary started FilmNeverDie as a small shop in the back of his garage, alluring different photographers and newbies to a small but varied world of film photography with a wide range of 35mm, medium and large format cameras. Since then, he's opened up his own cafe on Bourke street as a collaboration with Magnet gallery (formally Photonet) and Hunter Studio as a space for all sorts of creatives.
It seems like the weather is all anyone can talk about since we are transitioning with Spring vibes and I have to say, it felt lovely to be out in the sun with the weekend exceeding the 20s. Hello warmth, it's been a while.
I don't think I've ever introduced the first day of a month or of a season on this blog before and yet, I'm not sure why. I've been looking forward to warmer weather which is so unlike myself and I feel very much surprised by admitting so.
