I cant say where this was taken, but it is heritage listed.
I was asked recently about vertical panoramas. I don’t have many, but here is one from a trip to China.
I was in Perth on Friday so I took advantage of the opportunity and joined the photoshoot Mark Stothard arranged. Afterwards the get together at Camera Solutions was very enjoyable. I had a mixture of shots, but had fun playing with some of the images. We caught this rather colorful group in the Hay St Mall, and they cooperated by posing for us! I knew this shot of a doorway I took earlier would be useful!
This image made the shortlist in Team Digital’s recent Golden Shopping Trolley Awards, and I was pretty happy with that. The subject was “Landscapes altered by man” and this image was shot in the Dunsborough landfill site, so I think it definitely qualified. There was a special award for the best image with a shopping trolley in it. While we were at the local tip emptying the trailer, my wife spotted this trolley, so I shot it and entered it. I like the image and the judges did, but not enough to make the final 10.
The judges reviewed the finalists and I am pleased to say that they picked up on most of the elements I sought to portray. They did say however that whoever took this photo had a twisted mind!
My sister told me about this place – she thought I might find it interesting to photograph. As I was in Perth today I went to check it out. She was right – however I think just after sunset would be the right time – I was there about 12 noon as I had to come back to Dunsborough this afternoon.
For anyone who is interested, this is opposite Ascot race course. And there is a convenient hole in the fence which isn’t very hard to find if you want to go inside!
Last time I was in the Perth CBD I spotted this interesting alley. I liked the contrast between the fashion on the right and the modern building of glass and steel compared to the empty sherry bottle and graffiti and old brick wall on the left. The locked gate is also very strong visual element.
