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.
The times shown refer to the photo above.
The following photos were taken in the evening, after work, and with the shops open for late night trading.
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.
