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.

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)

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.

20/52 – “Bus”

The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round.

An easy one this week. The magical random word generator produced “Bus” for me. Since I do take the bus to commute to work and the CBD I already have had plenty of opportunities to get something.

On other news, I have joined another photography competition through lens culture. It is a Magnum competition so the entries will be insanely good. I at least get a review of my photos by an editor as I submitted 5+ images. Coincidentally the photo above was one of them. Fingers crossed!

Week 17/52 “Home Bound” – Selections

A week of shooting after I got back from overseas. I do feel recharged but I wish I was traveling and shooting again! I’ll post Week 18 theme tomorrow. I swear I am shooting daily lol.

Week 13/52 “Window” – Selection

Sargent Peppers signage along with a man saluting a window wins this week.  B-sides below. I haven’t really been shooting or should I say looking intently for my images. Mostly doing my errands and shooting when I see something. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing.

The project is making me shoot weekly which is always good I guess. Other shots the fit the theme below.

Week 09/52 “Soft” – Selection

Top pick for my 09/52 last week for the theme soft. I really like the driver and passenger’s annoyed/angry expression in contrast to the soft afternoon light. Other explorations and images below. Amazing what “soft” light can do to an image. It gets addictive shooting in soft light. I am going to miss it once winter comes and the days get shorter.

Week 09 – Soft

Dropped the ball this week! One day to go. I thought I posted the theme of this week. I used a random word generator once again and got “Soft”.

I have been playing with shooting wide open and ofcourse shooting in “soft” morning and afternoon light.

Last chance tomorrow to get something. I am hoping a comic con event might give some interesting images.
