Stolen moments – Snapshot of Perth City, Friday 19/10/2012

I’ve spent the last two weeks in Perth’s CBD undertaking training for my new part time job. On Friday, I took my camera into town to photograph some of the gorgeous facades along Murray and Barrack streets during my break.

I ended up turning my attention to the people around me instead.

These photographs were taken over two sections of the day – lunchtime, and early evening. I just pulled out my camera with trusty 50mm lens, and played tourist, taking pics as quickly as possible before moving on. Some are fuzzy, but all capture a snapshot of the interactions, fashion, and quirkiness of Perth on one given day.

None of these photos were posed, and I didn’t speak to anyone being photographed. All of them were taken with a 50mm fixed lens (with the crop factor).

Enjoy! If you’d like to see other examples of my street photography, please do a keyword search or explore the portraiture category.

By this time it was getting chilly and I was pretty hungry, so I headed home. I thought it was a pretty interesting day, and was surprised how many pictures I could take in what added up to maybe 15-30 minutes.

One thing that prompted me to take these was discovering I didn’t have enough photos of the places and spaces I spent so much time growing up. Perth is changing quicker than ever and I want to make sure I capture the little things.
