Aerial Summertime – Melbourne from Above by Tom Blachford (18 Pictures)


Sobald man im Flugzeug sitzt, sich die ersten paar 100m in der Luft befindet und dann aus dem Fenster schaut, erkennt man jedes Mal auf’s Neue: der Blick von oben, auf Dinge oder die Welt, ist immer ein Anderer. Das weiß auch der aus Melbourne kommende Fotograf Tom Blachford, der den Betrachtern seiner faszinierenden Luftaufnahmen genau dieses einzigartige Gefühl vermittelt. Um diese Bilder zu bekommen setzt Blachford sich in einen Hubschrauber und macht seine Fotos bei offener Tür, ob es sich nun um einzelne Boote handelt, die auf dem offenen Meer umherfahren, ob es parkende Autos an strandnahen Parkplätzen sind oder ob es Menschen sind, die es sich an sommerlichen Tagen an den Promenaden und im Sand ihrer örtlichen Strände gemütlich gemacht haben – in seiner „Aerial Summertime“-Serie gibt es das Alles. Im MB!-Magazin gibt es aktuell ein schönes Interview mit dem Mann, ein paar Auszüge und Bilder haben wir hier unten für Euch:

„I saw another side to everything. Some buildings I would never think of shooting from the ground may have had incredible patterned roofs or arrays of panels that created amazing patterns. Some amazing buildings I love to shoot from the ground were a mess of cables and units from above.“ – Tom Blachford





What do you love about your city?

I love our culture, our laid-back lifestyle and our CBD (central business district) that is teeming with life, bars and galleries amongst the offices. Having 250 km of beaches stretching around the bay also makes for a great way to enjoy the super hot summers. – more





Did you come down from the heli ride with a different view of Melbourne than when you went up?

Seeing the ocean from above gave me an amazing view of the great outdoors lifestyle people lead here. There were kids learning to be lifesavers, a triathlon and countless boats, paddleboards, kayaks and jet skis. All out enjoying the Australian summer as early as 10 am! – more





Insider tips for a weekend in Melbourne:

Start with a coffee and some breakfast at any of Melbourne’s amazing cafés. NSHRY in Albert Park is right on the waterfront and their crispy fried poached eggs are a miraculous creation. Hop on a tram to the South Melbourne Market and enjoy some freshly shucked $1 oysters and a famous dim sim, attracting queues around the block. Browse local up and coming designers in the new SO:ME section nestled among the fruit stalls. – more
