Some of the best advice I have ever received was from a dear friend who once told me to pretend that I was a tourist in my own town. This has certainly made me braver and bolder on the streets and opened my eyes wider to scenes I once would have rushed past. So now there is this crazy woman on the loose in Sydney trying to learn the art of photography.
In late 2011 I upgraded my Olympus DSLR E520 to the E-5 which I absolutely love, love, love! Of course I still carry the trusty emergency handbag camera – Panasonic Lumix ZS7 – because when you don’t have it is when you need it the most. I also always wear clean underwear in case I get hit by a bus!
