Old Toronto Station

I’ve been wanting to shoot the old Toronto railway station for a while now and I finally got the chance a couple of weeks ago. The station is an interesting piece of Lake Macquarie history – it originally opened in 1891 and was active right up until 1990. It’s now been repurposed as the Lake Macquarie Heritage Centre and the line and station are still mostly intact. Wandering around you can really feel the history and it’s a great area to photograph.

I hope you like the photos. I’ll have to go back at some stage to shoot a sunrise.

Float Your Boat 2018

Last weekend was the second edition of Lake Macquarie’s Float Your Boat event. It was a lot of fun and seems to be getting bigger and better each year!

For the first night I went along with my photo group to Marmong Point Marina for the start of the event and then on to the Toronto foreshore to capture the boats in action, and then on the second night I caught them near where I live in Belmont.

The photos were challenging as shooting moving objects at night is quite difficult but they came out well overall. I think I learnt a lot from shooting the event last year and it really helped me this time. I’m very happy with them.

Both nights were a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to next year’s event. I hope you enjoy the photos!
