What to do on a miserable day?
The more I learn the more I am getting better at previsualising my photos before I take them. This shot was taken on an overcast drab looking day here in Canberra and I always knew that this was going to be a black and white image with a slow shutter speed to try and capture the movement in the clouds.
The hardest thing about taking this image apart from the torrid wind and the threat of rain was that it is Reconciliation Place in Canberra and during lunch time (when the shot was taken) Public Servants and tourists make there way down this alley as a natural progression from Parliament House (Pictured top of image) to Lake Burley Griffin right behind me. I love the interesting shades and textures of this little structure and many a wedding photo has been taken at this location during summer and spring.
Back at work now and I must say that I would rather be at home playing with little Mia, but I guess the bills have to be paid somehow.
