Como Bridge

boy2-1

Como Baths. This was taken the same day the man fell/ slipped or jumped from the Como train Bridge (not pictured) and badly hurt his face, head, and abdomen. I had left when the incident occurred but i have seen an image of the man, still in the water, awaiting for paramedics to remove him safely. He has people in the water holding him up, a rather disturbing sight….non the less, people will still climb and jump from that bridge. Some have become paraplegic, and being in the Georges there could be anything floating down stream, anyway lets hope we don’t see any fatalities here.

:Flash as fill, 6 images that tell a story. Establishing, close, and medium shots. The trip was to Towra, with my family…here are some more pics, equally as important, but didn’t make the final cut. We had no good bites in the shallows of Towra, whilst sheltering from the winds. Actually we didnt have much fishing luck all day, but great to get out, all the same.

Such a shame to see so much rubbish on the shore of Towra, but as this part of the beach can only really be entered by boat, it doesnt seem to really get looked after. I suppose most of the rubbish comes from careless boat people and littering from people on the other side of the bay.

Micah, Botany Bay

shoot11-4shoot11-2Micah_in_red-2 Micah_in_red-3

Shooting Micah on Botany Bay, a little bit of location portraiture for those people looking at my blog. I do take your standard images too. For this shoot I bought 25m of rope to hang from the beautiful trees at Ramsgate. I must of looked strange carrying a ladder, and climbing it, to throw the rope over it, with my shoe attached. Thank-you to the man who stopped to help. I was trying to explain to him, that I wasn’t planning on doing something stupid, but he couldn’t speak English. He worked it out and was a great help.

Willow Versions

I’m not really sure if this is a Willow tree, but it does remind me of the Willow plates that I used to eat off as a child. I think the ones from those days have become collectable in their sets. Anyway the tree is in the wetland area, not far from my house. The area is constantly under threat for road construction. While I know growth is a necessity, it may  be sad to see the area go. In the mean time the houses are reasonably cheap around the wetland due to the RTA restrictions. I say reasonably, this is Sydney after all.

The above is photographed on my 5D, and processed in LR and photoshop. The first image is the colours of the eve, pretty much as they were.
