Cute girl in purple beret, orange stockings, one black and one white shoe.


Most of my street photography is presented in black and white but from time to time there are photographs that need to be presented in colour. Take for example the photo of this cute girl in purple beret. She is wearing bright orange stockings and just to make sure she draws enough attention one of her shoes is white and the other one is black. She was standing in front of Sydney Town Hall and talked to her friends. This is a busy place with many people passing by. Yet, in few minutes I was there no one even looked at her once. I guess it takes a lot to be noticed in the crowd.

Beautiful Couple


Today was a rainy day and I contemplated not going for my daily walk. Cameras and rain do not mix unless you are lucky enough to own one of the weather sealed top of the range Canons. In the end I did go for a brief walk and was rewarded with a number of interesting photos including this one of the beautiful couple. The gorgeous girl was wearing current fashion attire – dark stockings and a short white dress. Her partner wore a more traditional business outfit. They’ve looked great together obviously enjoying each other’s company.

The overcast sky provided better lighting than the usual harsh midday sun. The wet pavement tiles also reflected some of this light up providing additional “fill-in” light.
