January 2013 - The Photos

At the beginning of the month, I decided to post a photo for each day in January.

It has been an interesting exercise—I've noticed so many little details that escaped my attention before. For example, my friend and I used to pass the Indian laburnum on our walks and I never saw it. Now we always stop to admire it and we've found another tree on one of our other routes. I took the photo of the commuters' cars because I saw a number of blue cars parked together - each just a slightly different shade from the other.

Although I am no longer photographing everything around me each day I still find myself looking around. Whilst hurrying to a meeting in the city today, I saw another old electricity substation facade and it made me wonder how many of these substations still exist on the edge of our consciousness. And as I crossed over the Pyrmont Bridge at Darling Harbour in the drizzling rain, I paused to watch the mists come into the harbour and assess whether to pull out my phone to take a photo.

I hope that this newly-awakened sight and sense of discovery does not disappear with the routine of everyday life!
