Look the other way


This is a peculiar photograph for me as it lacks a definite focus on one person, which I typically do. Here there are multiple interactions. There seem to be a serious conversation between he man with his back to the viewer and the woman on the right. The woman on the left seems to be a bit impatient and she looks away from the other two as if to say it is time to go. And then there is unassociated man in the background walking away from the scene. All of this set at the end of business day wrapped in the strong evening light and thus long shadows all around.

Looking towards the sun


There was something theatrical in this woman’s pose as she was looking towards the evening sun with her had trying to obscure the blinding light. Who or what was she looking for on the horizon? She seemed elegantly overdressed in a short black dress designed for an evening. Her hair all done up.

So, did I find out what it was that she was looking for? Yes, she was looking at a pleasure cruise for a company event on Sydney Harbour.
