Up, up, up…!

I trained my iPhone up on me in the lift like a fish tank.

Giddy, giddy, giddy…!!

My colleague stood apart from the glass to make sure himself safe and healthy.

This is a shot inside one of the most modern commercial buildings in Sydney CBD, taken from the lift of glass box in the building.

Snapshots of Sydney CBD

…with my new iPhoneXR.

I have upgraded my phone first time in four years.  I quite enjoyed my iPhone 6 but it was getting harder and harder to keep up the software upgrades.

It’s time to farewell.

Thank you iPhone 6 for being my always buddy supporting my everyday life.  You made me easy to connect to the world, and you made me addict sometime too.

Now, here are the random test shots I caught with XR…, I like the outcomes and I will look forward my life with this guy as long as it stands.

Out of my recent night photography

I don’t know why, but I can not kick my bum to get up early for morning photography.

Here Sydney is in the middle of winter season, it is perfect to do sunrise photography as it comes up rather late, right?

I don’t know why, but I can not take extra half hour for evening photography after work or weekends.

Here Sydney is in the middle of winter season, so it is perfect to do sunset photography as it sets down rather early, right?

Am I facing motivation issue?

Maybe….

Am I getting old and tired?

Well perhaps…..

So I tried to hitch myself up for it no matter what, and I did some night photography at Darling Harbour, Sydney, after work.

It was good choice because I do not like Darling Harbour and I hence do not head over usually, which means, I rarely took shots of it and there are plenty of challenges to take or try things.

A little confession here, that eventually I took three consecutive nights in a row to photograph at the same spots at Darling Harbour.

Why, because I was shocked at the quality of those I had photographed on my first evening, then I went back on the next evening.  The shots on second night were slightly better than first night, but still some were not good.

The third time’s the charm.  The photos taken at third night was somehow satisfiable.  Same time, I was feeling comfortable at myself having some focused time with photography.  And, I found myself that I have never had motivation issue (but I still don’t know what made me sluggish then).

Anyway, please let me share some of them out of the struggled three nights in shooting.  🙂

Mumble in the evening

I don’t know why time passes so quickly, even much quicker, these days.

So I came home from Japan on Friday morning finished one week trip.

I stayed in Tokyo in all my itinerary and kept myself flat out with planned works to complete, and they have been completed. I was happy to accomplish all my commitments were finished successfully.

The slight down-side of the trip was that I rarely got chances to take time for photography, even though I brought my DSLR camera and light-weight tripod for Japan.

Did I carry them with me all the time on my stay in Tokyo?  Unfortunately not.

I did not carry them with me all the time just because I was carrying other stuff which were bulky and I could not leave decent space available on my shoulders to carry my Nikon.

So I was keen to go out for taking photographs once I was back to Sydney.

Okay, then did I…?

I was afraid not, because my immediate weekend after the trip was vanished gone in one brink, while I exercised all the scheduled stuff to do which I had scheduled before I went to japan.

Yes, I know I planned them all to do after the trip, and its managed it, but I was being somewhat unstable as watching beautiful sunset sky by the window of the house I was at on the weekend.

Soon, soon, or soonish, I will definitely get out of under roof to do photography.

Well, in the meantime, I would like to share some of street scape I had photographed last month in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Active lane with after-party vibe

This was photographed Sydney city the other night.

I first passed in front of of the lane but took my steps back to peek in and took a couple of shots because of the cheerful loud voice overheard from inside it.
