The Lines in the Light

I was struck by this scene, as we walked beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The sky was completely grey and this beautiful fence stretched out along the path. I deliberately took the photo with the aperture wide open, so that the shot was slightly overexposed. Then, when editing in Lightroom, I bumped the exposure up…

Gritty / Pretty

I took these two photos in the same street, just a few meters apart, in Sydney, not far from the base of the Sydney Harbour Bridge which I photographed recently. Such a contrast between the dark and the light, the gritty and the pretty. We often see what we want to see.  Shot with my…

Curves Of Sydney

This prompt came out while I was in Sydney, so how could I resist the stunning and statuesque curves of the Sydney Harbour Bridge? It seems to appear out of nowhere when you’re driving through the city. You catch glimpses of it all the time. I’m always excited to drive over it, as usually I…

Welcome again to Image Reboot, a joint feature between Lucile (bridging lacunas) and myself (musings of a frequent flying scientist). Lucile asked me if I would write a monthly feature outlining what I’ve learnt about editing my photographs which I was honoured to do. I use LightRoom 5, I need to upgrade to version 6…

After the sun had set, I left that location andΒ decided to try another spot thatΒ my friend at work had suggested – Milson’s Point. On the way there, I drove past a stunning view so I pulled into a serendipitous carpark…

Sunset in Sydney

When I go to Sydney, I usually catch the last flight home. Mostly because it’s quite a cheap flight and saves the company some money and I also want to stick with my preferred airline. It works out nicely that Sydney city is on my way to the airport so I can stop off and…

Sydneyside

I was in Sydney for work last week and one night, it was almost 7 before I got back from work, so did some googling and found a great spot to see the city, the bridge and even the Opera House. The light was fading and a storm was rolling in, so it was quite…

Despair

As the day draws to a close and the light begins to disappear, he climbs his rock and waits just near the edge. He shakes his head. What is he waiting for? His love has gone. Not coming back. No chance. But he can’t stop. This is their spot. This is where they found each…
