Dust represents danger for photographers and their equipment


The recent dust storms have drown countless people to photograph this unusual for Sydney weather phenomenon. It has to be said the dust represents not only danger to the health of the photographers but it also represents real danger to their equipment. The dust is reported to be finer than talcum powder and thus has the capacity to enter your camera and lens. It would be very difficult if not impossible to remove. If you are photographing the dust storm scenes cover your camera as much as possible, including the lens, and reduce the duration of exposure to the weather.

Girl running into traffic


As I mentioned often before many people in Sydney utilise the lunch break to maintain their fitness level. Some go to health clubs and some simply go for a run. There are many places where the runners have plenty of space for their exercise. Hyde Park and the Domain are perfect examples as they offer wide paths away from automotive traffic and they are quite big. However, some runners simply run on the pedestrian lines in city streets and thus have to cross the road very frequently. It is unnecessary risk, especially if they do it on red lights as the girl running into the traffic on the photograph demonstrates.
