INTRODUCTION

This was an unexpected, unplanned photography adventure.  We had just finished watching the Australian Boomers playing the USA Basketball team at Marvel Stadium when on our way from the Stadium to the Southern Cross Railway Station, I decided to take some photographs on my iPhone.  Only had my iPhone as no cameras were allowed in the Stadium with the exception of our mobile phone cameras.  Some of the 52,000 people who attended the game were now heading along a pathway to the station to catch a train back home.  I have to admit, I do love street photography but it can be a little intimidating for both me as the photographer and for some of those who find themselves within the shot.  What I liked most about this experience was the ease of being able to take a photograph on my iPhone, even though the quality of said isn’t the same as my Sony Camera and lens, it just makes the whole process much easier to do.  Featured within these photographs are people from all walks of life who came together to watch a game of basketball; and the wonderful architecture that can be found within this region of the city of Melbourne, Victoria – Australia.  Its got me thinking and wanting to do more street photography in the future for sure!

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this photography adventure –  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone handheld for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

 

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom Classic.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing then I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find above only, the best of what I took during this photography adventure!

 

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

Being out-and-about experiencing the wonders of the world and the creatures (that being us humans) it inhabits – really does rejuvenate the body and soul.  Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!

INTRODUCTION

Early one Sunday morning, and due to the weather forecast indicating the day to be perfect for photography, hubby and I decided to head into the Docklands Waterfront (Victoria – Australia). It is just a short car journey via the freeway towards the City of Melbourne for us and a short distance from where we live.  The Docklands Waterfront holds lots of memories for me, as it is where my sister used to live, and we spent many an hour at the local restaurants and coffee shops, enjoying each other’s company.  It’s an interesting area to photograph as it features many intriguingly designed building shapes, sizes, textures and colours; all set along side of the Yarra River Harbour water’s edge at Docklands.  Being early Sunday morning there were not many people out-and-about which made it easy to set up shots throughout our limited time there.

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this cityscape photography exercise – I used a compact system camera, a Sony A7 Mark II – Full Frame with a Sony A FE24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Lens. For all these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

 

 

 

MY FAVOURITE PHOTO OF THE DAY!

This photograph below is my favourite!  I managed to capture a young man walking along holding his skate-broad, heading towards the Coffee Van.  Just love the different shapes, textures, colours and angles of the Apartment Building and the way it stretches up into the sky above…

 

 

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom 6.  I developed a small selection of photographs During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find both above and below the best of what I took during this photography adventure!

CONCLUSION

Being out and about experiencing the natural wonders of the world really does rejuvenate the body and soul.  Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!  It definitely works for me and once more we finished up our time in high spirits.  NB:  Please click here to visit my ‘Photography – About’ page where you will be able to find blog links and photographs about other photographic adventures…
