As part of my learning strategy for photography (and indeed life) I like to spend time seeking inspiration and aspiration. I like to look at the work of other photographers and think to myself – hmmm, I wonder if I could do that given the right set of circumstances?
A friend of mine Kelsey and I decided to go on a photographic play date and headed to Queenslands’ Gold Coast for some slow moving wave photography. As we drove towards the heart of Surfers Paradise I spotted what I thought was a stunning building and BAM! I had a moment of sheer aspiration. You see, for the last few months I had been looking at minimalist architecture images where stunning buildings were rendered in black and white and just looked simply amazing. When Kelsey asked where we were going exactly (as in which beach) I said “That building, I want to shoot that building!” and so we did, and exactly as I saw it in my minds eye, which is absolutely thrilling and very gratifying.
And last of all….
With the last one I just wish the clouds had been moving a smidgeon faster but I liked the overall effect.
Hope you like my rendition of the Gold Coast skyscrapers 🙂
