Old Fave, New Take

by Tim Rogers March. 13, 2019 611 views

I had a little break back in Australia over Christmas. I spent time with family, hung out at my old gym, had coffee at my favourite lakeside cafe, got free entertainment from the dog and a bunch of other things I need to do to keep sane. The great thing about my globetrotting ways the last few years has been the new experiences. The problem has been doing those things that keep me grounded hasn’t been as frequent as I’d like. So when the chance comes along, I’m on it.

One of those things is I have to get some photo time around the CBD. I’ve done the classic photos like the harbour bridge, the opera house and the harbour. Coming up with something new is the challenge. I will always be bias towards Sydney. It was home for a decade and it will be home again one day. I just wanted some photos I hadn’t got before.

I used to drive over the Anzac Bridge to work every day. It’s a great looking suspension bridge that brings you into the city from the west. It’s beautiful lit up. But I did those pics last time I was here. So I headed up to the walk way across the bridge and found a spot that looked along the bridge. I set up my camera on the edge of the road and got to work. I couldn’t help but notice as I snapped away cars were noticeably slowing down as they got close. It took me a few minutes to work out why. A burly looking guy on the side of the road wit a camera on a tripod! They thought it was a police speed trap, and my camera was a speed gun. My day was made and I got some new shots as well.

Beautiful series of images. At first I thought that this was a bridge here in Charleston, South Carolina . For a good 2 or 3 min I was trying to figure out how you got that skyline in the background then I read the post and realized I was quite a few miles off lol.

Would have looked better with a wider lens but this was the widest I could get with this alignment.

Still fun seeing people slow down though 🤣
