This collection has been another slow accumulation over the past month. A pathetic excuse it may be, but with the colder weather I’ve felt less inclined to prowl about the streets taking photographs. I say pathetic for the weather has been excellent lately – a typical Sydney winter of cool, crisp, clear days, interspersed with the occasional keen downpour. Perhaps I should blame the shorter days, and a lack of time in the afternoons and evenings.
I’m still carrying the camera with me everywhere I go – usually armed with the 18-55 mm lens. Not having been so inclined, however, to whip it out and stalk the city’s many and varied denizens, I’ve done my photography in more deliberate bursts – taking the long lens on outings to capture things with the finer glass. The switch to long-range shooting has suited me better, as lately I’ve felt more self conscious about photographing people at closer range. I’m not sure why this is, though perhaps it is a lack of vulturous practice. The “sniping” or “perving” lens allows sufficient distance and anonymity and it also takes better photographs. And on that note, here is some recent work, which I hope you will enjoy.
