“Snapshot of inner city terrace living Sydney style”
This week I picked something I’m still not sure about, but that’s the nature of photography I guess, some things you really like, others don’t, there are times when a few people will like something you are not fussed about, its in the eye of the beholder.
Last week found me down in Sydney rather unexpectedly, but I managed to take advantage of the situation and took my camera along. The streets of Sydney never cease to amaze me. The old and the new, the renovated and rundown. So much character and natural beauty abounds there and I came back with about 400 photos…. of course most of which I have discarded but a few that I like.
This photo I took whilst waiting for a bus that never came and we ended up walking down to Surrey Hills, in a round-about way as my usual superpower of map reading failed for a while, but then we were back on track and off again. Wrought iron amongst other things is fascinating to me.. so I played around a little with the perspective, came up with two shots but ended up choosing this one. In inner Sydney there are a myriad of terrace houses, all fairly uniform in shape but colour, tiles and fencing make them more individual. This is a snapshot of inner city dwelling in Sydney – terrace style. See wikipaedia for more on this style of housing.
