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?
Am I getting old and tired?
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. 🙂
It is very disappointing that there is no more Weekly Photo Challenge open because it has been a great opportunity and community for me to keep up my motivation and see great posts contributed by other participants.
I live in Sydney and I do love the view of Sydney particularly at sunrise and sunset. Well, every cities must be beautiful in these hours, but to me, Sydney is one of most picturesque cities in the world.
I appreciate my lucky to live in here also because it is close to nature. They have beaches and many bushes and mountains to walk and hike. There are many Australian unique wild creatures and vegetation seen in there.
And on top, my lovely two fellas; Bleu and Shiraz. The pair have been great companions / family who ‘talk’ a lot, sleep a lot, and bring me and mate laugh a lot.
Thank you very much for Daily Post community for all your time and works giving us these great motivation every day and week. I hope one day this will open again to get this community back.
When I found the theme for this week, I recalled some images on my head and went to pick up some photos out of my stocks.
Then, I started puzzling in looking at the photos as to which one it will be the best to respond the theme, and further I made myself confused a bit in terms of the way how interpret the condition ‘weather’.
Eventually I decided to post the two shots together although I had meant to post just one. The both buildings are weathered on the surface, the mural and signage are bleached or came off.
The both were taken in Sydney city while ago (but the condition of the subjects existing in city still remain unchanged ;-)).
