radiant EMBRACE  by Maria  Moro

  • Canon EOS 50D ~ EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM
  • Manual exposure ~ 1/3200sec ~ f5.6 ~ ISO100 ~ AWB
  • Shooting Date: 11th SEP 2010

was recently in Sydney and just like a little child I was so excited to take Andrew around our beautiful City.
I was concerned that Andrew would think this opportunity for shooting the Opera House would be so Cliché.

On a bright sunny Saturday morning, we rocked up to the Sydney Opera House (not the perfect conditions for photographing this iconic building…..lol)

I’m not one to photograph human subjects, but there we stood patiently at the bottom of the stairs, waiting for mother and son to walk way. I then thought, what if we just go with what we’ve been given.

Have a look at Andrew’s awesome version
Human Significance

I tend to throw myself into many creative crafts and many of which I don’t always complete., but I always come back to my first love …. photography.
