Photo of the day….The Big Issue

I love black and white photography. Its ageless.

I love the tones, the contrast and the way the ‘story’ of the photograph isn’t always immediately obvious.

This shot was taken on the streets of Tokyo, Japan.

I’m a huge John Lennon fan, so was quick to notice his face on the front of the magazine.

The ‘Big Issue’ was commemorating the 30th anniversary of Lennons death.

It really is one of my favourite photos…I hope you like it too… 🙂

So, tell me, what do you love about black and white photography?

Photo of the day…..Trees – in all their glory…

Its Autumn in Sydney, Australia at the moment  – my favourite time of the year  – and its beautiful. 🙂

As I drive around our city, all I’ve been doing is ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ over the colours of the trees during the change of seasons.

So it got me thinking about trees and how much I love them…their grandness, the way they ‘change’ through the seasons, the way they nourish the earth….

The photo on the left was taken in Sydney’s Botanical Gardens.

This tree is truly fantastic…you can get an idea of how big it is by looking at the two people laying under it. I wonder how long its been there, overlooking Farm Cove?

The pic on the right was taken in Tokyo, Japan during the autumn. The colours of the leaves on this tree were so intense –  so full of rich, vibrant colour.

Whats your favourite season?
