Early morning photographic adventure in Canberra’s Haig Park. Do not believe anyone that says this park is boring. Creepy: yes. Boring: no.
I was always planning to get up early … but not quite this early. The alarm clock was still set from the previous person in my room … for 5am … on a sunday. Ouch.
Quick cup of tea before we get on the way
Sunny park bench in the northern (aka ‘creepy’) end of Haig Park. I’ve never seen anyone sit on these, but they make for great photos)
Salute to the sun, Canberra-style.
Comforting to see that the tradition of cracking the goon in Canberra’s parks is alive and well.
This is Andrew. You wont be surprised Andrew could hardly stand (have a look at his bloodshot eyes). Through slurred words, Andrew introduced himself to me and asked me if I wanted to take his photo! Of course I said yes. I am constantly surprised at the experiences I have when I have my camera in hand.
Dappled light through the trees
Looking up through the pine trees – this is with the little 50mm lens at f1.8, and some sun flare
As I was taking this photo (lying flat on the ground) a very kind lady asked me if I was sick. I think that says a lot about who hangs out in this park on a Sunday morning
