Providore at the Adelaide Central Market is a bit of a favourite of mine. Fair warning this share is meant to be a street photo taken on Kodak Portra 160 but could turn into a review telling you how great Providore is.
I wasn’t sure how to name this shot. I snapped it at Darling Harbour a month ago. Taken with the 35mm Summilux which is my go to favourite lens. Let the image tell the story. For me, 35mm is an ideal focal length.
As said by the citation in the Pritzker Architecture Prize, “There is no doubt that the Sydney Opera House is his masterpiece. It is one of the great iconic buildings of the 20th century, an image of great beauty that has become known throughout the world – a symbol for not only a city but a whole country and continent.
Is this guy having a daydream? There certainly is something daydream-like in the photo. The surreal store. The style of the architecture and eclectic mix of items the store is selling. The combination of man made and the tree. The mixture of vibrant colours.
I saw this photo coming. I was out taking photos of the lighting at Victoria Square in Adelaide and saw this picture just about to happen with the lighting, the shadows and the father and son walking together in frame. I wonder what the story is?
