A walk with AK- Nov 2014

Having a photographer as a date/partner or friend, is never easy. You can never just go for a walk, as the camera usually comes along and a 30 minute walk becomes an hour.  Here are some photos from a couple of walks I took with AK last November. A few images of AK waiting for me are thrown in, to show his states of exasperation as I became excited about things to take photographs of.

"AK, look at the patterns these powerlines are making!"

"AK, hold up, you are too fast, look at this cool stuff to photograph!"

"AK, I am almost done, just a few more shots..oh wow, have you seen this??!!!

"AK!, Look at the moon through the power poles and lines! Wow, I have to get a shot of this!"

"AK, Look at the moon and the clouds!, I have to get a photo of this!"

"Hey AK, how interesting is this cracked and painted Footpath?!!!  I have to take some photos of it!":

A quiet day on the bay

AK and I went for a walk around the bay (Port Phillip), one Saturday. We took a train to one station, then walked for hours and hours, to another station on another line. I think we stopped for coffee twice. At one point, the water was so, so calm, I just had to take some photos. I was particularly captivated by the yellow poles sitting out there on their own, amidst the  silver blue seas and sky. In some parts, you couldn't tell where the horizon line was, as the sky and seas melded into one. Here are some of the my photographs from that walk:
