Archive finds ~ edition 1

From my archive i found these street photography shots and I’ve edited them to block and white. I think it gives them a more timeless, classic look. I also have color edits, o you have an opinion as to which works better in your opinion?

These were taken in Nicè France, hope you enjoy them. I like the children’s joy in them.

in my twenties

Many of us enthusiast photographers are now at home and trying to think of what to photograph. Still life, food photos are the first things that come to mind. I decided not to do that. I am going to start scanning old photos, make a project of it. I have hundred of photos that are fading in albums and boxes. Now is the time to scan the best ones. I might even share some of my finds.

There has been a challenge going on to post a picture of your self when you were young. This is one of me in my twenties. Even then I loved the sea and beaches, somethings remain the same. So do not be surprised if you end up seeing photos from the past decades.

The Inn at Spanish Bay

The Inn at Spanish Bay at sunset. I have to say it was a truly memorable experience to relax by the warm fire pits with some hors d’oeuvres and cocktails to wait for the sunset and hear and enjoy the sounds of the bagpiper as he puts the golf course to sleep in Scottish tradition. Once in a life time for me that’s for sure!

Firefighters

I saw these firefighters practice in full gear, running up stairs, climbing ladders, ans carrying the victim those stairs. It looked exhausting in the +35 Celsius heat. And the situation in real situation…

I had it easier I took a photos. I edited them all slightly differently, any thoughts?

I have been following the fires in Australia as two of my cousins have been effected by them very closely. So these are relevant in that sense that you have to be prepared at all time.Keep up the skills and fitness.

Why do I do this

Lazy, or something else, Haven’t been editing my Australia photos as quickly as I would have liked to. Have not even touched the ones I took in Hong Kong. I think, no, I know, I have not taken my camera out but only once since January. I think I am slightly depressed as I am not able to create anything new, I plan, I plan again, but then I don’t get anything done. My head is in a mist.

Have you been at this kind of a slump in your photography. You know, why do this, there are so many better, more creative and talented people out there. Who cares. Point being, I have always done this for me, never had any real ambition to be something. Just to share, the world as I see it. Come spring, hopefully, I will get back on the track.

Misty Beach

Victoria, Brighton Beach

Brighton Beach

Here you have 82 distinctive bathing boxes, a row of uniformly proportioned wooden structures lining the foreshore at Brighton Beach.

Built well over a century ago in response to very Victorian ideas of morality and seaside bathing, the bathing boxes remain almost unchanged. All retain classic Victorian architectural features with timber framing, weatherboards and corrugated iron roofs, though they also bear the hallmarks of individual licencees’ artistic and colourful embellishments.

Just try to resist pulling out your camera and snapping away, I for sure was not able to do that! Text from https://www.visitvictoria.com/

Sydney ~2

We were rather tired the first day so we walked a bit, some street shots of Sydney few days before Xmas. Our first day and it was raining.

Sydney ~1

We were greeted in Sydney with this happy dude called Doug and  kids of Leo entertaining the crowd by singing. So here are few street photos from George street. I was sitting on a bench as this little kid slept in his dads arms while mom was doing Xmas shopping. The pretty lady across the street just caught my eye.

 

How to survive November~28

I have to admit, I have been busy at work, so the idea of sitting down and opening the computer again has been rather hard, so here I am catching up. I have taken photos daily, most of them crappy. That is why I am not going to post them,  I will cheat a bit. I will post some more from the circus as it was inspiring and it certainly helped the survival of this month.

 

How to Survive November 2017 -11

I am surviving it’s grey outside, but i have a new hair color so all is good! Is this not one of the most annoying questions, what should I do with my hair? This time I solved it this way. Blonder, shorter.  The other question is, what should we make for dinner?

 

Do you agree with these very important questions or do you have better annoying and hard and more important questions?
