Yep, it’s a rainy Saturday in Sydney. The click.walk.learn tour of The Rocks that was scheduled for today has been postponed due to the unpredictability of this weather!

So are you looking for something to do today that still fits in around ‘photography?’

There are a few awesome photography exhibitions on in Sydney at the moment..

Head to the Stanley Street Gallery in Darlinghurst to view a thought provoking and emotional exhibition by 702 ABC Sydney multi-media journalist John Donegan.

‘Fighting Fire with Fire’ documents the 2013 Blue Mountains bushfires. John spent a week with the crews defending the Faulconbridge area and recorded this portrait of the volunteers fighting these devastating and ravaging fires.

The exhibition runs from 26th Feb – 15th March. The Gallery hours are 11-6pm Wed to Saturday.

The other exhibition I’ll be checking out today is at the Justice & Police MuseumCnr Albert & Phillip Sts, Circular Quay.

‘Suburban Noir’ is an exhibition highlighting crime scenes in Sydney during the 1950’s and 60’s. Watch the video below, it’s a definite ‘not to miss’ exhibition. The museum is open today from 10am to 5pm and this exhibition runs through to April (weekends only.)

The museum is also holding two other exhibitions: don’t miss ‘City of Shadows’ and ‘Collision:misadventure by motorcar’ – these two fabulous exhibitions highlight crime and misconduct on the streets of Sydney from days gone bye.

Have a wonderful day

Happy clicking

  1. Oh Christine Whilst I am sorry you have been rained out I am selfishly glad for my garden which has so disliked the past long, hot summer! I would truly have loved to have seen both of these photographic exhibitions, perhaps ‘Fighting Fire with Fire’ above all – now that our ground is wet and the weather cooling the images would not be as frightening as they were in October. Rain, rain . . . actually it looks as if another long awaited and iconic event may be marred in the Oxford Street region tonight . . . .
