Central Street Revisited

Central Street Revisited

Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just trying to get by
Just a boy, just an ordinary boy
But he was looking to the sky
~ Ordinary Day, Vanessa Carlton

I took this photo about a year ago during a day trip to Sydney. It’s of one of my favourite spots for street photography in the Sydney CBD, Central Street, a little avenue opposite the Event cinemas on George Street.

I’ve taken several photos there over the years, including this one which is one of my favourites. It’s a great little spot to go back to as the scene is always changing and there’s always something new and interesting to photograph.

I was quite happy with how this one turned out. It’s very simple but captures a slice of ordinary life that I find really interesting and I like the tones and textures as well.

The area looked very different the last time I was down as well with all the construction going on at the moment. I’ll have to get a couple of photos of that too.

Tai Chi by the Lake

It was a lovely day today and I went for a walk along the lakefront this afternoon to take a few photos of the sun setting over the water.

While there I spotted this man practicing Tai Chi. He was very graceful and a lot of people stopped to watch him as they passed by.

I watched him for a while too before snapping a couple of photos. It’s not something you often see around Belmont so it was interesting to shoot.

I like how the photos came out, particularly the black and white one. I was trying to capture some of the energy and grace of his movements and I think they convey that quite well.
