Falling Apart

While on a lunchbreak at work i thought i’d take a leisurely walk around the local area with the camera and see if i could spot anything interesting worth shooting.  I’m trying to expand my skills and process into architecture and after being inspired by some of Alex Wise’s, Balck and Whites (free plug!! you can find his blog on the sidebar over there >>>)

I saw some relatively interesting stuff, but the older buildings usually have a lot more character, and lend themselves to black and white a little more, due to the natural contrasts produced by their varying colours and textures.  None moreso than Hobarts, Holy Trinity Church, which has recently fallen into disrepair with the sandstone begining to deteriorate, and evensome of the small spires falling to the ground below.

My Hometown

I was born in Hobart and have lived here all my life,

so it seems fitting that i should share some of my photography from the local area.

I hope you enjoy viewing them.

Hobarts Bowen Bridge and its reflections across the Derwent River at sunset

Another angle of the bridge from the same day, looking south towards Hobart City.

Hobarts Bowen Bridge, reflecting the orange sunset glow. Driving home from work I was presented with the great colours and reflections, and as always, the camera was “riding shotgun”
