Offices Deserted

Offices Deserted

Randomly chosen by fellow photographer Russel Harris from my Blue collection.

Before 1Fox – The Sheds was hip and filled with good food there was just the derelict abandoned buildings of 14 Alexander Street.
Today, it has been recycled and houses a food market, a micro brewery and much more.

Sunday at the train station

Randomly chosen by fellow UK photographer Kim Brown from my Blue collection.

Sunrises and sunset alike are funny things, one day they will be the most beautiful thing on earth, the next plain as can be.
On this day it was just a vaguely interesting sunrise behind a lot of clouds.

Joburg sunset

Joburg Sunset

Johannesburg’s air is always crisp after a good rain, that Saturday I was on the 50th floor of the Carlton Centre Tower and, unexpectedly, it rained.
Johannesburg suddenly came alive as the sunset shown across web roads and roofs, a sight I had never had the pleasure of noticing before, one I will need to experience again.

The rain cometh

It is Saturday evening and a few photographers have come together on the 50th floor of the Carlton Center and the weather is not playing nice.
Once a renowned and hip tourist attraction the “Top of Africa” is now a desert of derelict shops and restaurants.
It still holds one unique aspect, it is the highest publicly accessible point of Johannesburg City Center, that makes it attractive to any photographers.
This was the west view as we arrived.

Voortrekker Monument at Sunset

Voortrekker Monument at Sunset

Photo 9 the 2016 Collection

With the coming Pretoria wide-angle photowalkI thought it would be wise to scout the area and make sure everything was accessible, that there is enough subject matter to shoot and that we can get the sunset!

It would have been nice to have clouds as clouds make for better sunsets but this image of the monument speaks for itself, I think we are going to have loads of fun.
I am also practicing my Photoshop skills with a tablet, it is so much easier that a mouse.
Layering 6 images manually is not the easiest thing in the world though.

Johannesburg City Hall

Photo 78 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

Do I love a good dark sky…
I am not going to bore you with the history of the Johannesburg City Hall, for that click this link.
I am still learning to use digital blending, very counter intuitive but I like the results.
The alignment is not perfect but I am relatively happy with the results.
