Triptych – Forgive Me!…

by on Feb.09, 2011, under Life, Photography, Street

The following is my first ever Triptych which I’ve titled “Forgive Me!”.

It was taken at The Rocks on Australia Day 2011 – my daughter and I were just having a rest in the park next to the MCA and listening to one of the concerts when we noticed this couple near us and the moments unfolding.

The images were taken about one to two minutes apart. This (the centre image) is probably my own favourite candid street image from the day.

Sydney Twilight Postcard…

My second daughter and I took a trip down to Blues Point and McMahons Point on Sydney Harbour – whilst we were there we captured this ‘postcard’ twilight shot of the coathanger.

Australia Day Street Visions…

by on Feb.03, 2011, under Life, Photography, Street

In keeping with my project to practice in the art of street photography this year I made sure I took a few whilst in the city with my daughters on Australia Day 2011. We had a very long and busy day and wandered around the various events – Hyde Park, Macquarie St, Circular Quay, Opera House, The Rocks and finally Darling Harbour (for dinner and the 9PM fireworks).

Here are some of the images I took ‘on the streets’ whilst we wandered through the city. The first two I processed in monochrome (because I thought that suited the image) and the last two in colour (again because I thought they looked better that way) – YMMV 🙂

This fascinating lady was having some very animated conversations sitting on one of the benches along the central promenade in Hyde Park around lunchtime:

One of the hundreds of cars on display adorned with it’s numerous ‘badges of rank’:
