Week 36 “Sydney” – Selections

Long weekend this week in Perth means some time for me to catch up on this blog 🙂

.I went back to visit my family in Sydney around two weeks ago so the photos for week 36 & the following week 37 will be from the east coast.

Alot has changed since the last time I visited Sydney two years ago. Lots of development, civil works and a crazy amount of humanity compared to Perth.

I couldn’t help but keep snapping photos from the car on the way home due to the unfamiliarity of the city I use to live in .

The first stop we went to was the Fish market in Pyrmont. Found an awesome butcher called “Vic’s meat market” Amazing quality meat and produce. I tend to experiment on health and nutrition and I am currently doing a zero carb diet, that is, no vegetables or fruit, just meat and the occasional dairy. I even cut out coffee and teas. So going there was like Disneyland to me!  I was mortified seeing the butcher cut so much fat off the beef whilst there because of all the negativity and misinformation on saturated fat and cholesterol.

Anyways enough about nutrition, like i said earlier, what I noticed were the amount of construction happening in Sydney. Roads, buildings, bridges, scaffolding, the city seemed to be in a constant state of growth.

Week 35 “Open Theme” – Selections

Constantly playing catch up with my street photography post. I know I am falling behind quite abit but I am still committed shooting each week and motivated on completing this 2017 project.

As Spring has finally arrived here in Australia, I should be getting out alot more to work on my way of seeing (WOS) Hopefully start getting more gems from the roughage. Fate permitting.

Week 27/52 “Devising” – Selection

Selections for Week 27. The weather has been terrible last week so I didnt shoot as much as I would have liked.  Potentially getting lazy too…

Devil’s not allowed

Luckily managed to get a portrait which fits the brief. Another messenger from God this week using his hat to spread the message. I seem to be targeting lots of religious public folk out and about in my city.

Week 25/52 “Reluctance” – Selections

Week 25 theme for this week was “Reluctance” Sorry for not posting the word before it was due but life happened. Featured image just sums up reluctance for me. Seeing police on horseback causing our bus to wait. One of those strange days whilst out and about.

No Dog Meat

Rest assured i fit in photography during my lunch break for the project hehe.

Building part recycling

I did not shoot as much this week but glad I could find some relevant images for the theme. I wasn’t really searching this week, more just shooting. Luckily post justifcation worked!

 

24/52 – “Bracket”

Random word generated theme again this week.

(BRACKET)

Abit of a strange and tricky one but luckily enough also open to interpretation from my dictionary/synonym search.

Anyways I’ll be looking for groups of people or things, photograph actual mechanical brackets and maybe even use the bracketing in my camera for the hell of it.

22/52 – “Crash”

The theme generated by the handy random word generator for this week 22 is “Crash”

I don’t necessarily want to hunt for car crashes but that was the first thing that popped in my head.

Culture crash/clash perhaps? A juxtaposition but with one element more out of place than the other. So far I have shot one which I think fits in the theme.

Pigeon crash?

A damaged car could count i guess. Lots of ideas flowing, now just need some shooting.

Note: Feature photo above was taken in the Philippines in 2013 after one of the big typhoons hit the country. I doubt I’ll get something like that here in Perth.

Week 21/52 “Rugged” – Selections

This ended up being quite a challenge finding something rugged for the week.

R0015429
Stained

The word is quite utilitarian and rough when applied to objects.

R0015437
Butt out

I searched alleys.

R0015413
Peek

Looked for scruffy subjects.

R0015369
Aged

Objects which I thought showed toughness and abuse.

R0015381
Battered

More construction sites/alley.

R0015438
Flight of the bumblebee

I also looked for urban scenes which I thought portrayed a rough existence.

Night out

But in the end, a memory foam placed on a timber bench somehow wins it for me from the multiple interpretations I read from the image.

  1. The foam acting like a rug on a bench
  2. the idea of a rugged/tough existence sleeping on the streets
  3. the uneven terrain of memory foam.
