Last weekend, my photography course went on a field trip to Circular Quay to practice some of the many techniques that we have learnt over the last 6 weeks (side note: I can't believe I'm 6 weeks into my course already - goodness gracious).
I always love venturing into the city. I constantly forget how beautiful this country is and I am always amazed at its extravagance. Unfortunately, I must admit that I am not that amazing at capturing its beauty. I feel like every second person in the quay was taking a photo of either the Harbour Bridge or the Opera House and after a while, I was getting uninspired by the monotony of my images.
Ironically, I fixed this monotony with monochrome. Seeing something so colourful transform into a shaded spectrum is actually quite interesting and mysterious. From street performers, to old locks, to ferries passing through the water - these photos took me into a black and white city that I had never been to before and I look forward to venturing through its streets again.
