Today is random day

I have been reading the second edition of Bryan Peterson's book: Learning to see creatively. It is indeed a very good book to expand the photographic eye, and not so much on the technicalities of photography itself.


Bryan prescribes some seeing exercises that when done once a week for 3 months, will guarantee you a vision that is shared by fewer than 10% of all photographers, and it will be a vision that gets noticed.

He also states that "It is my belief and strong conviction that any creative endeavour - including learning to see creatively - cannot begin as long as you are feeling anxious and lost".

Anyways, back to the random photos of the day


the new melbourne university accounting building




bean sprout specialists


looks like this place has been abandoned for sometime, judging from the number of phonebooks on the floor.




I originally planned to head down to Docklands for a landscape shot I was inspired from a magazine, but decided for something much nearer instead.


I used the 5 exposure autobracketing option at 1eV apart. The HDR is now much smoother in tone. I like it! :)


St Mary's Star of the Sea Cathedral


You can see the millions of tax payers money used to restore the stonework of the church. At last count, repair works were estimated at AUD 10 million.

The Catholic Boys School next to it.

Laters.
