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!!!

Anyone who ventures to the Freo markets will recognise this guy, he is always there selling his boomerangs that actually work and flying them over everyones head in demonstrations.  I was quietly waiting for him to make eye contact while a rang was mid air, I waited for ages while the crowd was gathered and watching but he never looked my way til the end when the crowds had moved on and there were no rangs in flight but his smile makes the photo.big smiles

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!!!

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!
