Flag poles and shadows


This photograph of poles and shadows was taken at George Street, Sydney in an early afternoon. Winter sun comes under low angle creating very long shadows. It is also a source of many challenges for the photographer, blinding you on one side or if you walk with direction of light the people working towards you either squint or close their eye – neither situation is desirable scenario for street photography. However, as shown on this photograph it makes for an interesting shadow play and silhouettes.

Silhouettes and shadows


Typically in my street photography I try to capture people and their behaviours. This photograph is different in this regard as it focuses on light situation rather then the people in it. Strong midday sun reflected of construction boards in the Pitt Street Mall generated interesting situation where the sun threw strong shadows on the construction boards and reflected from them light generated people’s silhouettes.
