Pink Stockings


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.

Old fashioned letter


I write a lot of letters. Having friends all over the world means e-mail is an easy way for us to communicate. I guess most people have almost forgotten what it is like to use old fashioned postal letters. You know the one hand written on white paper, in nice envelope and a colourful stamp. The one the other person will wait for a week or two to receive if they live somewhere in Europe or USA. And yet some people still do write letter like that. This older lady is one of them. She was sitting on a bench in Sydney’s Martin place and was writing a letter.

When was the last time you wrote a letter with a pen?
