With A Bang

Posted by Sunburst Street (Sydney, Australia) on 1 January 2017 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

2017 has had a lovely start for me already, when I was given the opportunity to photograph the famous Sydney fireworks from such a great spot without needing to worry about crowds or obstructed views. It's always a tricky business balancing photography and enjoying the moment, but today, I think I got the most out of both. Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog and commenting, I hope you all have a happy new year. Bring on 2017!

Some years ago, I started threesixfive, a daily project that was designed to catalogue my growth as a photographer. However, real life intervened, and after a while, as much as I enjoyed posting, it became something of a burden to post something daily. I've never truly stopped my love of photography, but I'm reminded again of how important it is to continually pursue the perfection of this craft, and share its fruits with others.

And so I return to an old haunt, hopefully a more accomplished photographer, with the best yet still to come. My main interest in is landscapes, but mostly, my photography is about finding the silence in the noise. I hope you enjoy my images and thank you for stopping by.
