When shooting the streets I am looking for something interesting, be that a person or group of people doing something odd or just being themselves.  Often I see many things happening that may be somewhat ordinary, but combined and layered in a photograph they make the scene look very cool and worthy of a capture.  These are normal people, going about their business and they all made me happy creating art.layers

I was walking around taking a few photos here and there and was reasonably happy with my street shooting, then I walked past a particular place where the contrast between the background and people was just perfect.  I found a great place to plonk myself on my rear end and waited for right time, the right peoples that made it interesting and I think I got a bunch of great shots….check them out!!!

When you are in the city talking to your mates and you think it’s a private conversation, then think again.  There’s eyes and ears everywhere, listening and watching…just look around!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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!

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.

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
