Happy 2007!!!


Well, maybe not my best photo, but the most exciting photo for me, because it reflected MY Sydney, and was the result of me meeting an interesting person with a fascinating story to tell. As well, I have been trying to take better portraits and "people shots" throughout the year, and to me, this photo captured so much of the character and work of Kevin, including the hands, and concentration of the artist.
You can read all about Kevin here.
I have collected some of my personal favourites, and all my 2006 "people" photos at Sydney Daily Photol Extra.

Many of the Daily Photo family are celebrating their "Best of 2006" today. Follow the links to see the Best of City Daily Photos in the eyes of the creators.
Happy New Year, everyone!

  5. Hey Sally! One of the things I've been curious about seeing is how people would chose their favorite photo. I like that you went with your heart, with what the photo meant in the larger scheme of things. Still the afternoon of Dec. 31 so here I am saying to you in the "future", Happy New Year!

  8. Happy New Year, Sally! I'm glad you chose this photo - it was decidedly one of the most memorable from your Sydney last year. I hope you're off to a fabulous start of your photo (and otherwise) year. I hope it rains or at least gets a bit misty or something!!! I hope all is well with Kevin and his family, too.

  20. I like the picture even more after reading the story behind it. I think I might make that a goal...to get "people shots" and the stories behind them. Nicely done and quite inspiring.

    Have a wonderful 2007

  25. A very significant photo from "your" Sydney. We all remember this posting so well because you made it come alive for us through your excitement for his work and this wonderful image. People around the globe are now familiar with the work of his hands, and the image of his experienced hands themselves.
    Sally, wishing you all the best in 2007, and looking forward to visiting your Sidney often this year,
    -Kim
