I've been volunteering at Hutt Street Centre in Adelaide. Teaching photography to some of their willing clients. And I'm loving it. It's the first time I have taught photography to a group, and found it more comfortable than scary.
Arriving early one day, I went for a wander. Down one of the streets in the south eastern part of the city I come across these sofas. Nothing else around them, just the two sofas against a garden wall. Interesting. Click.
Walking back, I meet a client heading in to show me what he has done. He also saw the sofas - a number of days ago. He laughed when I said I took a photo of them. I am really appreciating teaching these people at Hutt Street about photography, and getting to see their view of our world. There are a few that could be great photographers, with 'an eye' for composition, interest and angle. One thing that does run popular is the subject of nature. Everyone loves to photograph plants, animals, sky or some other natural form. Things that I quite often take for granted. Dogs running. Ants scattering. Bark fallen. Trees in the night darkness. Flowers. The simple things in life. Did they before?
