This week for Monochrome Madness I thought I would hit the archive and find some photos that I have used before, but not for a long time.
These images were taken early in 2015 one evening when I went in the Royal Exhibition Building and Melbourne Museum with a friend. I have to admit I don’t remember much about the trip. I certainly don’t remember the reason for the first two photos, but I do remember the last one.
Can I tell you a story?
I know some of you have probably heard it before, but you may have forgotten.
So we were taking photos of the fountain and looking at what we could do. As we were taking photos this guy came past and immediately I was on alert as the guy looked like bit roughI always am, he seemed like he was drunk or on something. I have to admit I am always a bit scared of people who drink, probably from having an abusive alcoholic father. I held back, but he talked a little and then started walking off.
He got a few steps then turned around to tell us how he got a really good shot there one night with his phone. So he got out his phone and showed us the photo. It was a good shot and he said he took it with the light behind the fountain. I knew I had to get that shot, so I went for it.
He was so right, it was a good place to take a photo. What do you think? Did he give us some good advice?
