After the workshop, time for a couple of more photos before departure.
Spotting similarities on the street (above photo) are more common than you might think. As a 'street photographer' I'm always scanning the street for interesting things like this. The funniest thing about this is the guy is just innocently standing here, smoking, and doesn't have a clue that he became a visual phenomena for this capture of an 'unscripted' moment on the street. I will show you some more of these moments as we go along.
Workshop with David Alan Harvey - part 3 (final)
Who would have thought that with the 'Underground City' theme there could be so many different options. That was the problem, 'too many options'. The whole idea of building a 'body of work' is to stay focussed on the theme and have consistencies that flow together. You can already see from my previous explorations for these theme, they should all be a 'body of work' on their own.
Workshop with David Alan Harvey - part 1
My initial idea for a 'themed' essay during the workshop was the underground stations in Sydney and with a title 'Underground City'.
The trains and stations are so different to Brisbane and it is incredibly interesting to watch the daily commuters at any time during the day. The trains are also dark with lots of scatches and graffiti inside and out and this also makes for interesting capture.
So with this initial idea in mind, I go out to explore. Spending time in and out of the train system, here are just a few shots to give you an idea of what was going on at the time.
I took off to Sydney to attend a mentoring workshop with David Alan Harvey, a famous Magnum Photographer.
I arrived in Sydney a few days before the workshop started in May, so I could look around and to do a bit of 'street photography'
Here are some 'unscripted moments' from the street as I had a wander around. "Continue the walk with me over the next few days".

I love street photography and capturing the context of our everyday life and then, writing the 'stories' that go with the images.
