It’s a funny thing how most of us choose to go to other cities and other countries and tour about and look and see and photograph all that catches our eye and yet we don’t do the same in the place in which we live.
Of course I have photographed and shared on my social media pages and with my friends and family the view of the Sydney harbour bridge, the opera house and Bondi beach to name a few of the most photographed sights in Sydney.
Last weekend I was in the city with a friend casually strolling around and enjoying the lovely autumn weather.
Of course when you are not rushing about, one notices and sees things through different eyes and that is how I became a tourist.
I am by no means a good photographer but I think that generally I have a good “eye” and I find that with a camera I tend to look at things differently.
Some tips that I have learned along the way is that one should firstly “Look” and secondly “Look Up” and thirdly “Notice” and not in that order necessarily.
We have some magnificent architecture that could rival anywhere in the world!
So look up, look and notice the interesting detailing on our own buildings.
