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.

Enjoy!

Capturing street portraits posed is not something I do often, but while wandering down the main drag today I was looking at capturing this dudes photo in some funky way and he obviously saw me so posed himself before snapped it, a man and his dog…best friends!dsc_1296

It’s been way long between posts, I have been around and still taking photos but just not as much street photography as I would like.  I’d like to say that I am back shooting the streets daily but that would be a lie, I am a busy lad these days volunteer shooting and will be playing in studios.

Today, took me back to my roots of street photography and back into the heart of Perth City.  There was a dance performance there when I got in, raising money for charity and though I couldn’t see from the back I had an interesting shot which I will share here.

Keep the Flame Alive

I have been very quiet on the streetography front for a while now, not given up of course but have been taking a break and concentrating on my day job and family.  Saying that, I never stop looking and the streets and photographs, I was looking over my old galleries today and found a few film shots that I really liked and thought i’d share.

I haven’t blogged in a very long time, one could say I have been slack and I could make excuses like “work has been tough”, “I’m too busy”.  But, I really have basically been slack and work has been taking my mind away from creativity.

This day, I was out with the boss one lunchtime shooting the last shots on a roll of AGFA Precisa CT100 on my awesomeness Nikon F100 (for all you gear geeks like me who want to know what camera I was using) and this shot presented itself, I loved the shadows and tunnels feel of this walkway.
