Went up to Lancelin for a day of sand boarding with friends who were visiting. It’s about 1 or 2 hours out of Perth. It was sand everywhere. A lot went in my mouth too. Sadistically humorous to see people fall over, but it is harder than it seems.
The curious thing about staying at a place, you never really do the ‘sightseeing tourist’ once you’ve settled down at a place. Like when I lived in Beijing, I actually never went to the Great Wall of China. Oh, regret.
Ferris Wheel 23/52
For some weird unknown reason, I enjoy taking shots of ferris wheels. But I never ride them.
Taken at Fremantle, Western Australia.
I’m so behind with this project that it’s not even funny. Anyways, this was part of the road trip. That was a wind farm we visited while we were in Albany. It was really cold, (‘wind farm’ should have given it away) but I was silly enough to assume shorts and no jacket was fine. I was so wind-swept by the time we returned to the car.
This Little Light 21/52
We celebrated a good friend’s birthday while we were in Albany. Nothing big, just a small cake and some pretty sparkles to end the night with.
The Beach at Albany 20/52
So two weekends ago, I went on a road trip with some friends down south to Albany. It was a four hour drive, and we rented 4WDs and stayed in chalets right beside the beach while we were there. The weather was really choppy, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?
I took this opportunity to try out landscape photography and overall I think I did… a modest ok. I just wished I had even wider lenses. 17mm was not enough.

I went out to the city today to try to something new: Street Photography. And I failed horribly. (That’s why it’s just entitled photography.) I ended up taking more photos indoors than outside of people/streets. It was hard getting used to the concept; to find interesting things out in the street, hold up my camera and shoot. I kept thinking how the person on the other side of the camera would feel and that really made me very hesitant to point the camera directly at people. Blegh.
That is my friend’s film camera which he was shooting with. We were in Boffins getting engrossed in books and I snapped a few shots.
I’ll go for another street photog run next week. And hopefully I actually take photos of streets this time.
