I recently met Takie at a Soul of Sydney Block Party in the Library Hotel, Chippendale where she and a several other artists including Baf Cat, The Dirt and Sid Tapia were doing live painting.

What better way to kick off this new idea than focussing on a passion of mine… photography. A couple of weeks ago I was photographing street...
