There is always someone, normally a student or a backpacker holding a sign pointing down an alley to where you can buy Ugg boots in Pitt St Mall. Only their fingers move as they tightly clutch their smartphones surfing the net.
The lack of movement provided an opportunity to photograph him, albeit without his knowledge.
This lady stood in the middle of Pitt St Mall and talked on her phone oblivious to everyone else around here. What caught not just me eye but also the eye of the other photographer was that she was different, different to everyone else.
Lady in Leather
Wandering around the city I stumbled across these blokes playing over size chess. At one point I actually thought they were playing for more than fun.
Noticing this gent who was well out of place in the city was not hard. So I waited for him on the other side of the intersection for him to cross and come to me. When he crossed I asked him if he wouldn’t if I took a photo, he didn’t mind and his female friend kept asking me if I knew who it was. It was pretty tempting to come up with some smart remark about him being someone else like Paul Hogan.
As I snapped a few shots off he kept telling me to hurry up all the while he rolled his cigarette. Either way he’s not the real Crocodile Dundee !
Everyday he sits in the park catching the warm rays of the sun whilst reading the (only what I can assume) is the Chinese News Paper.
