365:2010 – June Highlights and the big 200

In Uncategorized by pauldwade / July 21, 2010 / 0 Comments

The 365:2010 project hit the big 200 milestone on Monday 19th July. Unfortunately the event completely passed me by as it was a working day and I didn’t even notice! The next biggie is 300 which falls on October 27th, I’ll try and remember that one.

So here are my highlights from all the images taken in June. Remember if you want to see more of 365:2010 you can visit the set on Flickr, if you have a Facebook account you can become a fan and get the latest photo posted daily to your news feed.

White sinks, chrome taps, mirrors, black and white = good combination.

Under the Clocks

UNDER THE CLOCKS
I couldn’t visit Melbourne without including an image of the famous entrance to Flinder’s Street Station. Many locals and visitors meet under the clocks.

Mystery Lift

MYSTERY LIFT
Where exactly am I going to get off in this lift? Into a spaceship? Into infinity (and beyond)? Into a Star Wars Tie Fighter?? Or perhaps I just exceeded the weight limit.

EOS Festival of Photography

Over the weekend I visited a couple of exhibitions which are part of Canon’s EOS Festival of Photography currently running in Sydney. Firstly, ‘Photos 1440‘ is an exhibition of images taken by Sydney Morning Herald photographers. 1440 represents the number of minutes in a day, though I’m pretty certain there aren’t that many images on display. A slideshow with a selection of images can be seen on the SMH site. Here’s one of my favourite images, taken by Dominic Postiglione:

Secondly was the ‘World Press Photo 2010‘, an exhibition I visit every year. It celebrates the best in photojournalism from around the world and features an amazing selection of images, some confronting. If you can’t make it to a city holding the exhibition you can view all the winners on the WPP site. Both exhibitions are on at the State Library of NSW with Photos1440 running until August 1st, and WPP10 finishing on July 25th. Here’s one of my favourites from the WPP, an amazing capture of a Stealth Bomber doing a flyover at the 95th Rose Bowl game, by Mark Holtzman:
