Depressed

I did not end up going to any galleries again but instead focused on art/sculptures I encounter while out and about.

Structure

I thought this was clever way to reuse shipping containers by making them a permanent rainbow in Freo.

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.

Busker between Bon Scott

Enjoyed shooting it last Saturday as I managed to take out the bike i recently got and just cycled around Fremantle.

Amazing how much more time you gain by cycling vs walking.

I was pretty sore when I got back home though as I haven’t ridden a bike in years.

Week 23/52 “Portraits” – Selections

For week 23 I decided to continue with my portrait challenge. So there’s no theme per say. Most of the subject I spoke with and asked but some were taken candidly.

Captain America

I find since asking people for their photo and having a mini chat, it has made me more comfortable with approaching people. Knowing how to diffuse a situation and just be comfortable with what street photography is.

Fear in street photography is weird. There is no ill intent after all. It’s our lizard brain who is fearful.

R0015777

The stoic Seneca has a great quote which I like to read before my lunch photo time to help get me out of the fear mindset.

The mind at times fashions for itself false shapes of evil when there are no signs that point to any evil; it twists into the worst construction some word of doubtful meaning; or it fancies some personal grudge to be more serious than it really is, considering not how angry the enemy is, but to what lengths he may go if he is angry. But life is not worth living, and there is no limit to our sorrows, if we indulge our fears to the greatest possible extent; in this matter, let prudence help you, and contemn with a resolute spirit even when it is in plain sight.

Week 22/52 “Crash” – Selections

Small pickings again this week. Damn this short winter light.

Stretching the term too with the selections.

Considered vandalism, within the confines of the AUSSIE letters.

Within the letters

But to me its the glasses of this old man which takes the cake. A party crasher like no other.

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 🙂

 

 

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!
