And just like that Autumn has arrived. Back in Poland, I usually freaked out at that point, my mind already racing to dark, cold, short winter days. And even though that’s not the case in Australia, the reflex remains.
I struggle with photography these days. I’d like to do more if it, but can’t seem to find worthy subjects. Photographing the everyday things feels boring. I love to travel and take photos, but there’s not much opportunity for that these days, and pretty soon it’s going to go down to zero for a while. But I read recently something that deeply resonated with me – your everyday life, no matter where you live, is foreign or even exotic to someone else.
I live in Sydney – a dream travel destination for many. While living here isn’t all sunshine and surf — I spend most of the time within a few miles radius of my house, in my non-beach suburb — it’s still pretty good. There’s beautiful greenery and my beloved palm trees, the weather is fabulous most of the year, and I do get to go the beach, often every week. So I’m going to try to get over the fact that I’m photographing the same things a lot, and focus on photographing my everyday with purpose.
Lately we’ve been blessed with amazing sunsets, full of warm light, and incredible colors. This was one of those days, when I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and snapping a few pictures in my backyard. All it took to find inspiration, was to look up.
And after a few minutes sky turned orange during this glorious sunset.
Another couple of images taken with the iPhone X, and edited with mobile Lightroom App. These two are shaping up to be a powerful combo for photography on the go.
