Passion, Protest and Riots
I am a strong believer in standing strong in what you believe in. So when the Black Lives Matter march was given the go ahead on Saturday, we had a massive influx of people come into the city of Sydney, to protest for human rights. Again I am all for this and I want to see change in society to make sure that we all get treated fairly regardless what colour or sex you are.
But I do think it is really selfish and unfair on the millions of people that have worked really hard and for some people have lost there jobs and businesses. To see a possible spike in the curve that we have sacrificed so much for. There are so many other ways to stage a protest that will make more noise and make you the general public stand up and by counted. We could of started a petition on social media or petitions that could of gathered some momentum so we can then forward it on to the right people who would then try and make sure that we don’t have any prejudiced towards anyone our society that we live in.
I would also like to add that not all the police around the world are like Derek Chauvin.
For anyone that decides to join the police force they do it because they want to help people and that is helping keep law and order in your community, so you can walk around at any time during the day and night, and feel safe and if for what-ever reason you do need them they will be there to help.
On a side note the following images were taken down at Coogee Beach on Saturday the 6th of June on what was a beautiful Winters afternoon, and if these images can lighten up someone’s day and make you feel more motived to enjoy the outdoors in some shape or form then I think I have done my job.
So what is the one thing you cannot live without? Your partner, favourite food, going to the movies, or is people. Stop and have a think about it for a second.
When you take away what you enjoy the most then your life tends to stop for a bit before you can kick start it again. So with Covid-19 killing a lot of our things that we use to enjoy. We then need that reality check. What I am saying here is that when we all went into lock down and started worrying about how we were going to pay the rent, bills and everything else that we need to survive. I think that we didn’t think about what we needed the most that will get us out of this lock down without losing your bearings or another way of putting it would be your mind. And for me it’s people, yep that’s right people.
I know that without people I am nothing, without people my photography doesn’t exist because a photo is not a photo till someone looks at it just like a book is not a book till someone reads it or a dresses is not a dresses till someone wears it.
So how important are people? That’s a really weird question, everyone needs someone without a doubt. People can be a real pain in the butt, but if the world ended tomorrow and you were the only person left on this earth. What would you be lacking the most? For me it’s people.
These images were taken about 2 weeks ago on a Sunday. Most of the places would of normally be humming with people. But the day I was there, there was hardly anyone. Making it feel very eerie and somewhat lonely. One of the results of the lock down in Sydney.
Here’s to me and everyone else hoping that this virus will be stomped out and never seen again.
