Waterfront Place

It’s been a long time since a photo was posted up here on Skyscraper Obsession. I think I’ve been too busy working in jQuery, CSS and the various CMS’s where I’ve started to acquire the identity of a techie guy. It’s true! Even though I look … [read more]

Sydney Opera House

Sydney Opera House, Nick KindIt’s not strictly high rise architecture at all. But as a true world class icon the Sydney Opera House certainly deserves a mention on this site. Only 67m tall, it does seems higher when you stand infront of it, but so gracefully designed with such an … [read more]

AMP Building, 33 Alfred Street

Unfortunelty I was swamped with Melbourne Docklands Real Estate websites and haven’t been … [read more]


Lucient, Nick KindJust down the road from Balencea we have another new residential tower called Lucient. With such a varying range of architecture, St Kilda Road is becoming a bit of a hot spot my shoots. I love the way the high contrast has brought out all the … [read more]


Balencea, Nick KindA brand new building for St Kilda Road in Melborune, Balencea boasts a sleek looking glass facade. I took this picture whilst on an urban shoot for Framelines Magazine. It wasn’t part of my brief at all, I simply couldn’t resist the shot.

AXA Building

AXA Building, Nick KindThe Axa Building is no major height breaker here in Melbourne’s CBD. Just around the corner from the Realto Towers it stands at 9om high. But, I just love this shot! It’s so easy to get a sharp and contrasty picture on such a bright day. … [read more]

Melbourne Playtime

Melbourne Playtime, Think SodaHere’s a mixed up graphic of the local Melbourne Skyscrapers. The idea was to create an environmentally friendly road into the city. But we ended up using black and white and thus we lost the message; and our direction! It’s nice to put it out there … [read more]
