The best picture of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at night. That’s true as far as my roll of a camera film says and no one can disagree with that. Yes, I shoot digital. But film or memory card what was really great to realise (again) is the fact, or a pleasant surprise of a kind: you could not really tell for sure what the end picture will like after the long exposure. That’s the beauty of it, the photography. You walk there with a tripod in a crowd of people thinking “Why am I really going to the Opera House when lights will be projected on to the Opera House? Shouldn’t I be on the other side? To see it?” You set up tripod, remote control, set all for 3 bracketing shots, thinking “Well, I have to do it just because of all the way”. Then goes click-click-cli-i-i-ick and whoa, look on all those rays and coloured water!
Walking with a tripod on the streets at night seems to be quite a popular activity nowadays by the way.
