Sydney July 2015 (2 photos)
“Hey Thelma! Look at what I can do with my new phone. It’s got a camera in it. They call this a selfie. It’s what the young people do all the time. I feel so crazy. Isn’t technology wonderful?”
“That’s priceless, Louise. You’ve always been crazy. This is just the first chance you’ve had to express yourself.”
Busfare into the city: $3
Lunch for 2: $32
New phone: $780
Taking your first selfie and sharing some fun with your best friend: Priceless.
I’m guessing that was a good day for those two ladies, meeting up in the city for some lunch and some laughs. It definitely was a good day for me, getting these shots. Actually, I don’t usually double back and shoot the same people twice, but I’m glad I did it this time. The photos aren’t perfectly focussed, but I still like the story these two photos tell as a set.
Both photos taken whilst I was walking. Manual focus set at a daringly short 1.5 metres with a 40mm focal length prime lens. A bit too close I think, but another exercise in being a Secret Agent Man, as I mentioned in my previous post.
