Street: Week 52…

Week 52

and so the year ends… along with it my year long journey photographing street scenes comes to a close (well at least this formal 52/2011 project) – I hope you’ve enjoyed my exploration throughout the year…

I’ve even put together a book to be printed (with the help of my eldest daughter) of the images I’ve posted each week throughout the year – I’ll put the order in and will hopefully see the fruits of the labour in a couple weeks time.

and here to end off the year are a couple of images I took with my daughter in the city and on the north side of the harbour in the days leading up to the end of the year…

There are these fantastic pieces in the store windows of the new Louis Vuitton store in the CBD – many sculptures of animals made from leather bags. In this case however I was interested in the reflections in their window along with the art behind the window

Equine Layer

Literary Nebula – a great display outside the Kinokuniya bookstore in the Galleries Victoria

I saw this elegant looking young woman with flowing long hair and bright red skirt standing alone waiting above the ferry terminal at Luna Park and knew there was a shot somewhere (although I’m still in two minds whether I like this shot or one I took 30 seconds earlier where she’s staring off to the left)


NIKON D7000 + 70.0-200.0 mm f/2.8 @ 200 mm, 1/2500 sec at f/2.8, ISO 100

I’d been meaning to take this composition for some time (with the harbour bridge looming large in the foreground and the opera house in the middle ground) – In my mind I actually wanted to be a little higher for this shot but I’m still happy with this result. Interested to see what people think of the processing on this
