Good morning Perth.....!


There are so many technical errors in this shot I should be embarrassed to put it up :) It was just after sun up and the sky was so fabulous that I went against all the rules and shot straight into the sun, although I did wait until it was hiding behind the Brookfield Place Tower. Perth is experiencing it's first rail closures for the sinking of the city railway lines as the major part of the City Link Project rejoining Northbridge with the CBD. Trains coming in from all areas ceased at the last stop before the city station where Transperth buses were lined up waiting to continue the last part of the journey. It all seemed to go pretty smoothly, the Freeway on the other hand was crazy! Hope your week has started well, looks like the much need rain has come at last with a week of showers ahead, nice! Take care and stay safe.....

  1. Nice morning shot! I can just imagine how crowded the roads were if the normal buses were shut down. We don't have any public transportation to speak of so our roads are always jammed with cars and trucks and other unspeakable things.

  3. I quit not one, but two photography classes because of stupid, elitist, traditional rules. In high school a semester final test was to produce our "BEST" photo for grade. Even though the teacher admitted to me that my photo was among the best in the class, he gave me a resounding "F" (for fail) as a grade. He did it because I took the photo into the sun.

    If a person has a good eye and can "see" what will look good in a photo, then that is pretty much all they need. You my friend, have a great eye!
    I love this photo! It has a very surreal feel to it and that sky is AMAZING!

  4. Fascinating! A major civic project. We are to get rail so my ears pricked up. By the by, your wonderful photo sees my Monday post, and raises the ante. Breaking rules to a higher end = Art:-) Trees Bon, Mon Ami

  6. What a gorgeous shot -- into the sun or not!!! I love it and it did take my breath away!! By all means, break the rules and it does depend more on a persons "good eye" more than "rules"! Have a wonderful weekend, Grace!! And break the rules again next week!!

  11. Who cares about technical excellence? - the mood is the thing. This gives me a wonderful glimpse into a moment in the life of your city.

    Hope we don´t get traffic jam!

  13. Quel ciel incroyable !!!!

    Okay how's this for comparison: last Thursday the traffic was so bad that it took me 1 1/2 hours to drive (make that crawl) 3 miles...

  16. Rules were made to be broken Grace. That cloud formation is terrific. I'm so glad that you shared it with us. Enjoy your showery weather. I know how important and welcome rain is in an arid climate.

  19. Well as for me, I'm loving those clouds. So happy you shared!

  20. How could you ignore those clouds? I like the shot, despite the whited-out section in the middle. I am not enough of a techie to figure out how to take that shot and avoid the white-out.

  21. That first shot is wonderful.

  22. It looks neat! Never say errors, say "special effects."

  23. Rules are made to be broken. The shot does give a sense of how bright the morning was

  24. Don't worry about breaking the rules, Grace, it's a great shot.

  25. It could be in Amsterdam, they closed the subway for the fourth year in summer and long queues of busses have to transport the people through the city.

  26. I'm envious of your rain. We had lots of clouds building up yesterday and I waited and waited for a thunderstorm and nothing. On the late news last night, I hear that it poured down rain in the extreme south of Phoenix and they had high winds. Crazy, not a drop where I am.

    I love your photo into the sun. What a sky!

  27. I assume the burying of the railway lines will be a benefit that makes the temporary inconvenience quite worthwhile.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think it's a fabulous shot Grace. I'm glad I don't have to go into the city during this period of the railway line sinking.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Always good to break rules every now and then.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't know about any technical errors in that first shot Grace. It's a beauty. A persian carpet in the sky.

  31. Technical errors or not, I love it!
