Out and about with the Wingman shooting the streets of Perth on a gorgeous sunny day, it’s hard to concentrate on what we are shooting when the day is so nice…gotta love summer in Australia. We start in Forrest place, circumnavigate the city and end up back there for this shot, looking up the corridor and think wow, I need a cool person to walk by and SNAP, I got this shot. You’d think i was happy and took only one shot as it was my first but nope, we stood there for ages waiting for the right shot, the right person. When I got home to check them out, the first one was great, this one!

I had a very short walk through the streets today, testing out the new lens for the E-M1 (cough cough) can you believe it, Sean was using a zoom for street photography, this is something I do not normally do buuuuuuut, to be honest I can shoot the streets with anything, it was fun. What I noticed was birds everywhere, trying to capture them in an interesting fashion is a challenge, I might go out again and try this. Birds are peoples right?

I was walking around the Northbridge area today and came upon a scene that needed to be photographed, everyone in my vision was sitting, or leaning on the benches. Which is a pretty normal thing to do, but what made it funny for me was that I was thinking about watching an up and coming sporting event, thinking about the players who start and the players that sat on the bench half the game…the bench warmers, the scene fell into place and I snapped away!

For everyone that has been to Bangkok and seen the taxis there, they are bright and colourful thats for sure. I was told by the locals to only catch the “nice” taxis, the clean and tidy taxis, the taxis with a meter. I kid you not, there must have been a billion bright pink taxis, another billion green-n-gold taxis and of course a few more billion tuk tuks. I still managed to take a “nice” taxi and he take me to the wrong hotel…just my luck!

I was sent away for work on a training course to Bangkok for 2 weeks, while I had to work and the training was quite intensive I did have the occasion to go out shooting the streets of Bangkok, or should I say the back streets. as I was far from touristy areas. I consciously tried not to take advantage of the lives of Thai peoples less fortunate than myself but I did manage to grab a few special shots will I will share over the coming week. One thing that I noticed was transport, much the same kinds as anywhere but more so how they used it compared to my home town of Perth. The first photo I will share, probably my favourite of the trip and one of many transport shots “The long ride home”

I set my work photo group a challenge and not an easy challenge, it was to shoot 36 exposures of film in a 1 hour lunch break. You may think that it wis easy and of course any idiot could click the shutter 36 times, but the challenge was to come up with some half decent shots at the same time. There were three of us shooting various SLR’s and a Rangefinder (my M6). We also had a couple of guys shooting digital, I opened the challenge to the digital shooters as well so they didn’t feel left out and to boost numbers haha, but they were limited to 36 shots and no deleting.

What I like to look for in the streets is something different, something strange or just out of place. Today, while out on a walk with my good streettog mate Wing we came across this slightly strange man sitting doing his own thing with not a care in the world. When I walked over to shoot him I noticed the sculptures in the background and had to move around til they were all perfectly aligned. I did not want to disturb him, I wanted to capture what drew my attention in the first place.
