Short photography time at Bondi

These were taken on rock platforms laid along the path for Bondi Tamarama Coastal Walk (please refer to here for the coastal walk).  I had had an appointment in the morning at Bondi Junction and I extended to the beach after the appointment.

I rarely visit this Sydney’s most famous beach, simply because it is a little far from my local, but therefore I got to put my camera in my bag first in the morning of the day even I knew that I did not have much time for ‘excursion’ to do after the appointment.

It was just nice day.  As it was a weekday, beach was not packed, and people were relaxed.  I quickly found a quiet spot on the platform and did some long exposure shots.  I had to quickly pack up and head back to city, but it was nice and fun short photography time.

If you are visiting my page from somewhere in winter or cold country, I hope I could share this warm and relaxed tone by the photos below.  🙂

Calmness: What Long Exposure magic brings on – 長時間露光がもたらす平穏

This was taken on one Saturday a couple of months ago.  I like the effect of what long exposure brings on, and I would like to improve my skills of long exposure because it makes photograph more dramatic.

Anyway, what I would have intended to achieve in these photos were simply calmness and some sort of beauty brought by the calmness.  I am not sure what you find from them, but it will be great if you enjoy somewhat.

Thank you for stopping by.

技術的な面ではまだまだ入門レベルですが、それでも長時間露光撮影は機会を見つけてちょこちょこ撮っています。この写真もその一つで、二、三ヶ月前の冬のある週末に散歩しながら撮ったものです。シャッター開放はやっぱり写真にいろんな効果を与えていると思うのです。結果、一枚の写真が持つドラマ性がより強く表される気がします。

この写真で、私が目指したのは平穏と、その平穏が織り成す美しさでした。私のブログに立ち寄ってこれをご覧になっている方はどう感じているのかな。何れにしてもちょっとでも何かを感じていただけたら嬉しいです。立ち寄ってくださりありがとうございました。

Chilling at Freshwater beach – 或る休日のビーチショット

This Monday was Labor Day in NSW and planned to head up for sunrise photography and dip in the water.

Well, sunrise was missed, but still had some good time for beach photography (and good coffee of course) so I would like to share some of them…

今週の月曜日はレイバー・ディ(日本語訳が難しいのでそのままで。。)でお休みだった為、朝から日の出をビーチへ直行するというプランを建てていました。

結局日の出には間に合わなかったものの(はい、意志薄弱です)、朝のビーチ写真を楽しみました。まだ人も少なくて、とても気持ち良かったです。その時撮ったものをシェアしたいと思います。
