street corners

I have a few different ways I can walk to work and I like to mix it up so I can find different things to catch my eye.

On Wednesday I was walking down Collins Street and I looked up Murray Street as I was waiting for the lights to change to cross the road. It occurred to me that this street corner would only look like this right then. I was inspired to get out my phone and take a picture looking up the street to capture the moment.

Murray & Collins Street | Wednesday 21 February 2018 | 8.48 am

I laughed a bit because people on the other side of the road turned and looked up the street to see what had got my attention . . . and nothing had. I had taken a picture for no reason other than that this was what this corner looked like at 8.48 am on Wednesday 21 February 2018 (bird flying overhead included, not cloned out like I thought I’d do when I thought it was a speck, because it was there too).

I’m going to keep doing this. Taking photos of the most normal everyday scenes with no aim in mind other than to capture what this moment was like.
