One Tree, Three Ways

I have been doing a fair bit of shooting down on the Manly foreshore lately, some of it on film and some on digital.
I am still to get the film developed but I have processed the digital shots. This set was shot a couple of days ago.
Its nice to be able to keep going back to the same spot and get different photos each time.

Manly-Wynnum Walk

I have been shooting film more than digital lately so today I decided to go out with my D7000 w/Sigma 35mm Art. (As much as I wanted to shoot my Electro 35!)

I ended up going to Manly and walking from the Manly Boat Harbor up to the Wynnum Wading Pool and back again.

Here’s some of the photos, I’ll post more later in the week.

Lyrical Equations

Last week walking around Brisbane I met Ben from Lyrical Equations, he was out hustling & promoting Brisbane Hip-Hop.
Super down to earth guy doing his bit to help the youth of Brisbane and get them motivated & into doing something positive with their time.

A quote from the Lyrical Equations Facebook page.
“Lyrical Equations is one of many re-engagement programs under the “YATF” Youth Are the Future banner. We are an organisation that covers every profession within the Creative Industries.
Over the past 4 years we have been working in numerous Schools and Community Organisations across Queensland delivering tailor made programs for disenfranchised, disadvantaged and disengaged youth of all ages and backgrounds. The workshops can cover a whole range of components from learning how to write rhymes “Lyrical Poetry”, learning about different styles of Hip Hop Dance, learning about music production and Beat Making, Painting and Drawing and or Theater and Performance.

Big props go out to the Lyrical Equations team for their efforts!

Brisbane Protest

This afternoon I was walking around Brisbane (I have just moved here!) shooting some street and just getting to know Brisbane a little better when I came across a peaceful protest.

The protest centered around West Australian Premier Colin Barnett’s push to close isolated Aboriginal communities in Western Australia.
When I arrived there was already an Aboriginal Elder speaking so I took some time to listen to what he had to say until the urge to take some photos took over, after a while the protest moved from King George Square onto Adelaide St, blocking traffic in both directions in the middle of peak hour, from there the crowd walked down Adelaide St to William St stopping again at the William St & Victoria Bridge intersection (It’s around here that I get a bit lost as to where the Protest walk went, being new to Brisbane and all) from William St/Victoria Bridge the protest made its way back to King George Square for the finish.

I’ll leave you with some photos from the protest.

Some Street Shots

Early Monday morning (6am) I met up with another photog to have a walk around Perth and do some street and urban shooting.
Its been a long time since I have shot street and it took me a little while to find my rhythm, but in the end I got a fair few shots that I’m happy with.
While my mind was mainly focused of street shooting I was also thinking about the urban landscape and architectural side of things but struggruled with it, although I think it does show in some of the shots.
So far I have only edited the street shots and not the urban/architectural as I am drawing a blank on where to start.

Anyway here are a few street shots.
