OMG he shot street photography in portrait, what is going to happen…the sky is falling. I’ve done it again and broken the rules of street photography, or was there even such a rule.  I saw this photo, it was down an alley and a taller photo suited the shot, it was even interesting when I saw it though not sure I really captured the moment but here goes anyways.phone break

A shot from a while back, but not posted…why…no idea it is awesome, if I don’t say so myself and been in the mix a bit lately for various reasons that you shall see soon enough.Kid Play

I don’t ever post family photos to my street photography blog, they are definitely not “street” type photographs…or should I say they normally aren’t street style of photograph.

We were at Sculptures by the Sea down at Cottesloe Beach today, and I was photographing a little  bit of the sculptures, a little street and generally just having a look as it was that sort of day.  I turn around and they are doing a selfie well worthy of any street shot I would normally take and here it is…bless them hahafamily photo

Many would argue what is street photography and what it is not and to be honest I don’t care, it is what I want it to be especially on my own blog.  What I have liked in the recent times with street photography, is simplicity.  Street life, shadows, simple paths being crossed, or chance shots.  Not limiting to myself on this for sure, but it is what I am looking for more of lately.

I was asked by my good mate Seng Man from Venture Photography Workshops to join him on a photowalk for the Nikon Centennial, there was about 20 peoples and we wandered the streets of Perth capturing some special moments.

Seng offered his take on Street Photography and how he shoots, very similar to myself only different and that is the beautiful thing with Street Photography we can all shoot our own way, whatever it takes to capture that illusive moment in time.

I was able to share some of my methods and ideas, and shooting a couple of stranger portraits which is always fun as it is the time you interact and have a proper conversation with your subject but that’s for another post.

Took the girls to the Hyde Park Fair today.  It was another amazingly bloody hot day here in Perth, the Fair is on this time of year every year and there is still packed with thousands of peoples enjoying the day.

The youngens were on some super bounce bungee jumping trampoline thing, and while they were there I went to have a gander at the vintage car display.  Plenty of amazing old cars, lots of history but what did I spy in the back seat of one of the cars…this older gent flaked out fast asleep in the back.

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!
