The Barefoot Man


After few postings about important issues such as elections and photographers rights today it is back to basic street photography. I have captured this image few days ago just opposite Sydney Town Hall just in front the Woolworths shop. There was a man standing barefoot at the very busy intersection. He was looking constantly back as if he was waiting for someone. His unkempt appearance may indicate he was one of many Sydney homeless.

Skateboarder having lunch at Town Hall


I was passing Sydney Town Hall when I have noticed a skateboarder sitting on the ornate balustrade and he was having his lunch. Bent almost in half he was looking somewhere as if he was trying to spot someone. At the same time there was considerable group of people at the pedestrian crossing and I have noticed that practically everyone was turned away from the skateboarder. With a semi circular space created between the young man and the rest of the crowd. Town Hall is a busy place at lunchtime and it was rather odd there were no people walking towards me and the skateboarder.
