NASA cosmonaut in Sydney


Couple of photographers and a man dressed in a NASA cosmonaut suit were shooting near the town hall. They have created a lot of interest from all the people. After all it is not often you see a cosmonaut in the middle of pedestrian crossing.

The photographers took quite a number of takes on the theme. Last two I have observed were taken with what looked like Canon EF 70-200 lens. The cosmonaut crossing the road together with all the pedestrians, jumping up and down in an obvious attempt of creating low gravity illusion.

While the photographer was taking these shots from well over 20m I decided on close shot using wide angle and capturing not only his semi levitation but also the the people in the crowd watching his efforts.
