Woah… Being home in the country has been so good but boy, does time fly. However, when you realise that you have made about 6 cakes in under two weeks…. it sort of doesn’t sound like there has been much time at all really. Hehe. I always know that when I go home, I put on the home-3. The home-3 are the 3kgs of weight I put on in the first week or two of coming home and well, you can see why. I love baking cakes! I love sweets! Cooking normal food is fun to but I’m addicted to sweetness and fluffy rich mouthfuls of ecstasy.
Anyway, a post of all my bakings will be up around the end of my visit to the beautiful country but today I felt to share with you some of my street photography. During my first year in Melbourne, I could not be inside for any longer than an hour. I mean, I get that way when I’m at home as well. I get so depressed sitting idle indoors, especially when the sun is shining. I could not stop exploring all the beautiful architecture and robust, full streets of Melbourne city and surrounding suburbs.
My camera, Nico (Nikon Nikkormat FT from Washington Pennsylvania) came with me everywhere I went and it was so much fun! Of course, most of it was on my own. I’m an introvert so I do prefer to be by myself when it comes to my process of photography and spending long periods of time adventuring.
Traveling to and from home in the first year was a little all over the place but it was fun seeing the stunning landscapes of Australia via coach, plane and train. I do love catching the train except it takes 24 hours from Melbourne to home, and I always get sick from all the bodies in air tight tin cans. Anywho, everyone would have to change over at Sydney Central Station and I would have 3-4 hours until my train came to go up the coast. So, I’d explore the surrounding streets and cafes and chase the light with my trusty camera.
Here are some of the images I captured during Easter 2016 at Sydney Central Station. The light is beautiful and the culture and conversation changes into a form of the English language that I actually understand. All images are shot on 35 mm, Fujifilm Superia x-tra 400 film and none of the images are edited (I hate editing, you could say I’m a raw naturalist).
God Bless you All! You are all Lights of the world!
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:14-16
