There is always a part of your city that you live in that is the centre of everything. The part of town that you always walk through, the part of town that you don't mind exercising in front of everyone, and the part of town that you walk through on the way to work. In this case it's Hyde Park, Sydney.. .....I pulled my camera out in the early evening to do this culture editorial as I knew the light would be soft and a little flat. But that's how I like the light when I shoot culture stories. Not to mention all the diverse people walking, exercising and hanging out that allows me to shoot a wide range of subjects. And I am not only talking about the people ..........But the surrounding buildings and structures that make a park. Well in my opinion it's not really a park but more of a surrounding area that is a gathering place for everyone to enjoy at 6pm.
The Over Achiever
A bit of a funny editorial this one.......And yes has you can see it's another Culture post. This time it's on Surry Hills, I lived in the area for around 8 years. And have seen so many changes in this part of Sydney (Yes I will be getting out of Sydney soon to document another part of the world) But I found it so interesting to see how it has changed so much in the time I have lived there and the time I have been away e.g so many cafes and bars have opened up and a lot have closed down too. The people seem to have changed a bit, not as arty as they were once before. But a little bit more refined to say the least.
I spent the afternoon walking around my old stomping ground snapping what I could when I could. Focusing on quality not quantity as most decent photographers would. And walked away feeling pretty happy with my efforts. I would have to say that if I walked around Surry Hills last week or next week I am sure I would get something completely different to what I have here.
Never think you can under Achieve when you can Over Achieve.
