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.

Dance time

..until humans are back.

This was caught last month when Night Noodle Markets 2018 was held in Sydney. All tables and chairs set tidy in daytime and the figures made me thought of them dancing in the circles.

Thank you for stopping by.

A form of completed jigsaw puzzle in CBD

This take-and-go shot was made in Sydney CBD when I was walking there at lunch.  I thought it was quite beautiful that reflected architectures fit well in the surface of the building frame on this angle.

I like this building to check what’s displayed on or how the displays look like at the time (because they look differently by the conditions) and I enjoy to take photos of other buildings / architectures displayed by the reflection.  Due to its design of the building, when one of those small squares which are office windows is open to outward, the whole reflected picture is made looking like a incomplete jigsaw puzzle that mismatches one piece (or the number of pieces as the number of windows are open).

Well, as for today, looks like all pieces matches.

This is my first contribution to RAGTAG DAILY PROMPT.  RDP # 54: Reflection

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.  🙂
