Story behind the photograph
Martin place was very busy today as it was hosting the annual corporate event. Although very colourful and possibly interesting to a photographer, the even was effectively fenced off from the very public it meant to attract. I think some public event organisers need their heads examined for basic logic.
I turned into Castlereagh Street and walked into the scene you see on the photograph. A man and a woman embracing each other. There was some genuine warm feeling about this scene emphasized by woman’s closed eye and a big smile on her face. This is a peculiar location for photography as this stretch of Castlereagh Street’s pedestrian strip is under semi transparent awning, which diffuses light very nicely.
