People of Sydney


I love to get out and about and photograph people in the street.  Just ordinary folk going about their everyday lives.  The thing I probably love most about it is that I capture them as they are at that precise moment.  No pretences, no special makeup or lighting, no fake smile for the camera; totally natural.  Another thing I love about getting out on the street is the recording of how a place looked at that particular time.  In another 100-200 years, people may look back on my street photography and remark about the fashion or how much that street has changed; street photography has a historical record aspect to it as well.

These photos were taken in Sydney as we wandered between places from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour, Pitt Street and places in between.  A big day of walking!
