Window and a wheel


Here is an interesting sight I came across in the Power House Museum. We visit the museum probably twice a year and always find something eye opening. This year I think the nuclear medicine exhibit was such exhibit.

As usual I take my camera and hope to find something unique, interesting and most of all photogenic. Photographing museum pieces by themselves is not really that interesting to me. Never the less from time to time I do find a rewarding view. This time as we were exiting more modern part of the museum and entering old vehicles I noticed a window in the wall exposing part of a big timber wheel on on old horse cart. The light was good and the composition appeared by itself. Horizontal and vertical lines of a flat window open to timber textures of radial lines of the wheel spokes.

Spiral fountain at Darling Harbour


I think almost every visitor to Sydney spends some time at Darling Harbour and they have kids they always stop by the spiral fountain. Kids just love playing there and getting a bit wet, especially on hot summer day.

For me as a photographer this is an endless supply of abstracts. Different light conditions expose various patterns in watter of the little steps, or you can concentrate of water surfaces. Today I have noticed wind was creating lines in water at an angle to the steps of the fountain.
