Majority of my street photographs are presented in black and white in order to isolate the subject of the photograph from potentially distracting details of the city. At times however it is the colour that draws my attention. Take this pretty redhead reading text on her mobile, sitting on a bench in Pitt Street. On a cloudy day amongst mostly dully dressed business people her shocking pink stocking were visible like a torch at night.
This photograph of a single man eating his breakfast at a restaurant was take at one of these unexpected moments, and yet it almost looks staged. We came out of a lift in a building and took a wrong turn, which lead us onto a balcony over the restaurant. Symmetrically placed tables, each with different colour table cloth looked interesting by themselves. Having a lonely man eating atone of them was an unexpected, but welcome bonus.
