Man and an anchor


There is an anchor sculpture next to the Sydney Town Hall building. This man stood in front of it for a considerable amount of time studding it very carefully. The sculpture is quite simple and rather “ordinary” and yet he took quite an interest in it. After few minutes of looking at it he took a camera out and took what seemed to be a single photograph. Perhaps he was an art student on an assignment.

While he was studying the sculpture I had to be patient to get a clear photograph of him as this is rather busy place with many pedestrians. I was rather lucky as this was a cloudy, overcast day and the light conditions were less then favourable for photography but then in time some light got through the cloud cover and illuminated his face and the tip of the anchor.
