Sydney Tower sun reflection


On one of my recent walks I went through a short cut created by a shopping arcade at the corner of King and Pitt Street. There was nothing remarkable there. Same shops as always and few people having lunch break at the tables in the middle. As I was about to exist the shopping arcade a few people were going in the opposite direction in rather a big group and I have stepped aside to let them through. I turned around only to be blinded by strong sun reflection of something “up there”. I moved a little to the side to position the transparent roof’s supporting structure in the middle of that reflection so I could have a look without being blinded. The sun was reflecting of the Sydney Tower in quite an unusual way. It almost looked like a white, intense flame, which you can see in the above photograph.

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.
