Old City, Modern Lights by BrandonDonnelly1

This is a pretty well known shot in the Bavarian town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This is a fairly quiet street however busy enough to make it difficult to get a long exposure shot without a car driving past. At first I wasn’t a fan of the light trails in this shot, but I think it works. It shows something modern in what otherwise is a very old town.

Mirror of a Star by Bingdun

Victoria Harbour, Melbourne.

Am I unhappy when bad weather spoils my shooting plans? No. This was where I planned to do a sunrise shoot, hoping for a good sky and still water. As it turned out, it was raining non-stop since leaving Port Campbell, even till now, and I’m in Kiama now.

I reflect, not in the sense of looking at ourselves in the mirror, on my purpose of traveling. I suppose I take away experiences from my travels and retain some pictures to help with my memory, should I one day lose all of my memory and can no longer recognize anyone or recall any part of my past. I don’t do photography with the aim to get likes and increase my self-worth. I do it to remember what I once passionately loved and places I’ve been to and scenes which I love.

By the way, moments after photographing this, it started to pour heavier (it was already drizzling when I was completing the frames), and this was late at night somewhere before or after 10pm. The reflection is real and I did not process much. It was supper at MacDonalds after this.
