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.

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!

 

Week 21/52 “Rugged” – Selections

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

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.

 

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)

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.

Just a typical bus scene

 

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.
