Never work with children or animals they say, and here I am photographing a kid playing wiht birds.  Brilliant I thought, he will scare the crap out of the birds and they all fly all over the place filling the frame while he runs frantically to his parents…the perfect shot!

Nope…didn’t happen, but I liked how the layers fill the frame, and the way that kid is just standing there just looking at his new friends.birds

W.A. Day here is not so sunny Perth, on the Monday public holiday and I went strolling the streets with my good friends Jessie-n-Rob (they are married I can join their names haha). I snapped a bunch of photos as I usually do and for me, I am trying out posting a lot more in colour now days and I had a series around the donut van that was very bright but I couldn’t decide what I liked.  Posting all three shots up, they all have their pros-n-cons and I will let you all decide…

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.

2018 man these years are coming around faster and faster, yet I don’t think I am getting any faster.  My first post for the year, as I picked up a roll of film from the lab today which was shot on my TANK of a camera Nikon F3 on Agfa Vista 400 film.

Realistically this was shot between Christmas and New Years, though I count it as when it is developed which enables me to use it in 2018 posts of course as I think it is brilliant…cough, see you around the streets of Perth.
