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.

R0015431
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.

 

21/52 – “Rugged”

Theme for this week was suggested by my dad. I have been on the hunt for rugged looking things and people.Used and abused items etc.

I’ve done well this week as I have gone out to the City each lunch time to shoot and eat. I am hopeful the weekend will bring some decent photos to compliment what I havegotten so far.

Stay tuned 🙂

 

 

Week 20/52 “Bus” – Selections

Wow another week done. The year is going light speed. It’s almost June. The sun sets here in Perth around 5pm which severely limits shooting time. I chose the image above because I like the layering of the foreground and background element by the three bald men. Plus the stories a viewer could make between the three characters in the frame.

Yellow Cat and yellow signs

As you can imagine I shot alot around bus stops and took the bus quite abit this week for the brief. (I wasn’t very creative with the whole theme)

Shot of the bus stop from a far with cones in unusual places

I’ve definitely gotten more interesting characters I have taken a photo of in the past but you can only take what the universe dishes out to you in the realms of street photography.
