Sydney GPO clock tower

This was the only shot I took on February 20th – in fact, I almost missed taking a shot altogether on that day…

My flight landed in Sydney a little before 8AM, I took a taxi to the hotel to check my luggage in and immediately after that I headed straight to the office. Since I don't sleep well (if at all) on flights, by the time afternoon came around, I was falling asleep at my office desk. I packed it in around 17:30, headed back to the hotel, and collapsed on my bed, falling asleep instantly.

I woke up around 9PM since I was sprawled out rather uncomfortably (I hadn't even gotten out of my work clothes!) and realized that I still had to take a photo!

Peeking out the window, I saw that it had started raining and honestly, I was still too tired to even contemplate going outside. I wasn't even hungry, all I wanted to do was sleep.

In the end, I just put my camera to the window, fired off a few shots (you can see the smears of water from the rain on the window), changed out of my work clothes, and went back to bed.

At least I got a shot for my #creative366project album, even if it isn't the most creative (^^;

    Merci pour le temps que tu prends Ă  raconter les details qui nous amĂšnent Ă  te suivre et ressentir ce moment ou tu as prit la photo. Je ne suis pas du TOUT photographe, et peut etre que je ne me rend pas compte de ce que veux dire "ĂȘtre crĂ©atif" chaque jour en tant que photographe.
    Tout ce que je peux dire (ayant vécu dans un tout autre domaine que la photo pendant de longues années) C'est que la créativité est contemporaine et se dit au présent; tu es totalement creatif ! :))

    Merci beaucoup pour vos mots encourageants +PasKale Monnom ! Comme vous l'avez sans doute remarquĂ©, j'ai tendance Ă  Ă©crire un peu. J'aime lire, et sur + G, il est toujours plus intĂ©ressant pour moi de lire le contexte d'une photo. Peut-ĂȘtre mon Ă©criture ici c'est un moyen de renforcer ma confiance pour faire ce que j'ai toujours voulu faire – Ă©crire un livre. Je n'ai pas le courage d'essayer quelque chose comme ça pour le moment, mais peut-ĂȘtre un jour … (^^;
    Alors merci à nouveau pour l'encouragement! 🙂
