Sculpture by the Sea event returned to my local beach after a long break due to, well you know why it got cancelled/delayed, and the crowds returned as well. The crowds can be frustrating at times as people will inadvertently be in your frame, and I found to achieve the best results by focusing on a particular area of the sculpture or angling the camera up away from the crowds. This technique sort of worked most of the time however there we occasions that it was unavoidable.
It was enjoyable experience getting out and photographing my local area as the sun set on another sweltering day and I was reminded I needed to photograph more of my local area in the future.

We are all different in many ways, and some of us express it a little differently, which is something these two young people had decided to do. I’m not sure how many times they had been approached for a photo but they were extremely happy to oblige.
Wandering through the mall I spotted this fella enjoying himself in the virtual reality world but what attracted to me was the amount of reflections that were in the window. So I positioned myself to take a photo of people looking at me taking the photo while trying not to get my reflection in the image. Not an easy feat.
The glow worm tunnels near Lithgow are certainly worthy of a visit however if you look closely on the side of walking track you’ll see small entrances to other caves that people don’t normally venture into. If you aren’t afraid of the dark and getting a little dirty they will offer a view rarely seen into another world. As we walked toward what we thought would be an exit we realised that our exit strategy would require us to climb out and get a little dirtier than usual but it was well worth the venture into the unknown and the the darkness beyond.
I’m never exactly sure as to what is allowed with photography in airports, so like nearly everyone else, the DSLR camera has in the past stayed in the bag. Up until recently I decided that the only way of really discovering what the rules in airports actually are was by asking someone but they all looked terribly busy to me so I decided to just pull the camera out and take some photos and see what happens……
Much to my surprise, I wasn’t jumped on by the fun police and whisked away to some nondescript interrogation room but rather managed to get some shots with this one being the photo that I was happiest with overall. Its pretty hard to overcome camera shake when the person holding the camera is the one shaking.
Decided to risk it and pull the old camera out at the Airport today to get some silhouettes. No one bothered me at all which is pretty good because I always thought that if you pulled a DSLR out someone from the fun police would immediately turn up and speak nastily to you.
