Weekly Photo Challenge: Rise/Set

Urban sunset.

I want to see sun rise/set at somewhere open space, but that is made possible mostly  when you ‘plan’ to do, a kind of.  Or you will have to satisfy yourself to view them in a limited sky or space framed by buildings and architectures.  You may be blocked by something moving objects.

These were photographed at Harbour Bridge, Sydney.

Busy traffic with many cars, busy public transports carry massive amount of passengers packed in their carriage.  On the side, another number of cyclists crossing each other on the cycle path along with main road on the bridge.   On the other side of the path, another group of health conscious people running / jogging / walking as having earphones put on their ears.

All was busy in that afternoon likewise, but behind all that scenes, the sun was making the subtle but gorgeous set-in show for closing the day.

Good bye for today and I will look forward seeing you again in tomorrow morning.


Thank you for stopping by.

Secret Meeting

Two boys walked away from a group of people and started talking quietly at a backdoor…

This snapshot was taken at a farmland in Kingston, Otago, New Zealand.  The farmland was open for a 5-days long motor cycle rally when I was there.  The land opened one of barns to the public for ‘Food and rest’ space, where many volunteers grilled BBQs at the front of it and prepared sandwiches and drinks, for the cyclists and event staff, security workers, and audience.  Adults, kids, boys, and girls were crossing, stopping by the only ‘under-roof’ rest area for snacks and chat.

I was on the backside of the barn that was shearing space for sheep.  The boys moved in from the main compartment of the busy rest area.

I thought this candid shot went good and made this my submission to  this week’s ‘Monochrome Madness’ hosted by Leanne Cole.

Monochrome Madness is the community she opens for other photographers and audiences who love monochrome / black and white photos.  Here gives me a great opportunity and challenges about monochrome images.  As it is open community, everyone can participate.
