Sydney Harbour Is an Amazing Place!

There are many things to see and do in Sydney and one of the best places I think to hang out is in and around the Sydney Harbour and circular quay.

The sights and sounds and the people bringing unique feeling to this area and while it is all hustle and bustle during the day in the evening it settles down and is filled with people enjoying this open area.

Of course there are many things to see and photograph in this area but one is the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I captured this photo from the intercontinental club Lounge which is situated on the 31st floor of the intercontinental hotel, and I must say if you ever want to stay in Sydney that is the place.

As I work my way through the photos or post them up for you guys to see and I love to see your photos of Sydney Harbour and circular quay, feel free to send them to me and I’ll put them in a blog post for everyone to see.

Hey Look at All the Toy Cars!!!

Photography is a unique type of visual art, it allows you to capture things in front of you and change them in such a way that you can create art and in some cases deceive the viewer of what they are actually seeing.

One of these deceptive techniques is the use of a tilt and shift lens, where it sets the focus on a plane across the image instead of a circular focal point like a normal lens. The cool thing about this is it messes with the way we think and the way we perceive images. Generally when we see this in real life and with their own eyes it’s because we’re looking at miniature objects and the focus is blurred at the front and behind the image any unique way.

So in my recent trip to Sydney I decided capture couple images from up in my hotel room to have a play this technique as it is something that I have never really played with before.

Have a look at this image and tell me what you think?
