I had a little time today, the trouble-n-strife was off doing something for herself (well, that’s not quite true but I had the time right…right!).  Previosuly i had done a few shots in a motion series, but used a camera that more suited this.  So of course I had to prove that the theory of the camera being better suited was just an excuse, so I used the current camera and it worked fine of course.

the chase is on

It is that time of year again and this amazing festival has hit Perth, where artist from across the country put on some amazing shows under the big tops, little tops and out in the open stars for all to enjoy.  What other place can you go to see Mermaids and Mermans, then on to some amazing Acrobats, Comedy, Music and even erotic Burlesque.

Enjoy a few snaps of my night in the Pleasure Garden!

I took the family to the Vintage Collector Markets at the old Midland Railway Workshops on the weekend and I have to say what an awesome location, I hope there is many more events there in the future.  Unfortunately I wasn’t there long enough, and having the family with me means that not much street photography but I shot a bunch of photos which I shared on my personal Facebook page. I did snap this one I will share with you guys here, was a cool scene of a couple of guys talking toys…reminded me of my mate and I, you are never to old for toys.

Toys Wanted!

A good day, met up with a fellow streettog Wing Chung and after noodles at the favourite place in the city “Newton Circle” we headed out to the streets to shoot people.  I meant photograph people of course, and you can’t half tell it’s under a week before Christmas, there were peoples everywhere shopping….at the shop….wait for it, check out this shot of the day.

Horatio, the man behind the art behind the wall.  Anyone from Freo, or anyone who has visited Freo has probably seen this wall and possibly with the man creating this amazing art piece.

Horatio’s Wall

 

You know it’s summer in Perth when the Christmas lights are up, the giant tree is set up in Forrest Place and of course the City Night Markets on Friday night.  I walked through there on the way to my car tonight, peoples everywhere which of course is great for street photographers.

Summer in Perth

It was the last night of Arcadia, the giant fire breathing, DJ pounding, raving music event in Perth…the under 18s night non-alcohol event for families.  I had plenty of good shots of the spider, some of them are in this ALBUM.  But, me with my street photography hat on, not that i actually had a hat on that night but on the way out I captured one of my favourite street photos of the year.  Why you may ask, I haven’t decided that yet but I just feel it had plenty going for it with framing, layering and excitement, if only you could hear the sound in this picture as well.
