A few snaps taken from my mobile phone of ‘old Fitzroy’. Although they are current photos of Fitzroy I took only shots that reminded me of ‘old Fitzroy’ during the 1960s, my old stomping ground. A difficult job as every where you look now, modern Fitzroy has covered old Fitzroy with new shops and buildings, renovations and graffitti.
I had an afternoon off from work so I trekked into Fitzroy with my mobile phone and Olympus omd-5 camera to take a few photos. Surprisingly, I mainly used my mobile phone, with very little editing and only took a couple shots with the Olympus (no photos displayed). I just wanted to take a few quick snaps, which I did.
I’ve done these sort of trips into Fitzroy over the years during a Friday afternoon off and a few times taken photos for research into the memoir I’m currently writing about growing up in Fitzroy in the 1950s and 1960s.
