Street Photography: Sydney

Street Photography in Sydney Sydney – The Harbour City. The Emerald City. Doing street photography in Sydney it would be easy to fall into the trap of capturing the iconic emblems. Sydney Harbour.

Film Photography – #52PicsProject

Rediscovering Film Photography – #52PicsProject A few weeks ago in a spur-of-the-moment purge of crap we have stored around our place I came across my old Minolta X-700 SLR film camera.
