When my friends arrived from the US I spent one day with Anne around the city. I asked what she wanted to see and she said a bridge that I photograph a lot. I can’t remember exactly how she said it, but it turned out she was talking about the Webb Bridge.
It is an incredible bridge and indeed, I have photographed it a lot. It is nice in a way because you can walk around it quite a bit and get it from lots of different angles.
It is one of those bridges that stands out again a blue sky, but that isn’t what we got. Unfortunately, it was overcast and rain threatened us nearly the whole time. It did catch us eventually.
We didn’t only photograph this bridge and found ourselves walking all along the river to Princes Bridge. We then headed into the city and looked at some of the buildings.
In the end, we stopped because her friends were ready to join us and it seemed time to go and find somewhere for a late lunch.
I used my Fujifilm X-S10 with the Tamron 18-300mm lens on it. I am finding that lens a great one for this type of photography. You can walk around with it and not worry about changing lenses because you want to get wider or closer to a subject. I love the camera too, it is lighter than my X-T3 and a great camera to walk around with. It is becoming my number one pick for a lot of my photography. I think the in body image stabilisation (IBIS) really helps with that as well.
I decided for Monochrome Madness that perhaps picking one of my images taken of that bridge would be a good choice for today. I have converted it and done more work on it. I hope you like it. I hope Anne likes it and that she had a great time as I showed her my city.
Participating in Monochrome Madness
If you would like to participate in this challenge please post photos on your blog and use the tag Monochrome-Madness, as then I can use the reader to see what you post. Also, use the tag mid-week monochrome to catch Bren’s as well.
I’m afraid I don’t use Social Media much anymore, but maybe tag it #monochromemadness for Instagram and I will try and look. That would be brilliant.
