Walking home from work each evening, at the same time, along the same streets, past the same landmarks in the same city - from a photographic perspective, it can be a struggle to justify bringing your camera with you in the morning. I'm often guilty of saying to myself 'there's nothing new to shoot' or 'nothing much happens around here'.
However I couldn't be more wrong, there simply isn't a bad time not to bring your camera out with you. Some of my favourite shots have come from unplanned chance moments and simply having a camera in my hand at that particular point in time!
Today was a classic example... leaving for work in the morning, in the rush for the bus I struggled to justify bringing my camera with me.
On the same daily return home (7.30pm) I walked past the same car park outside the same miners cabin on the same 99st.
This time however, things were a little different - a vintage car meet-up was taking place in the not-so-same-old carpark. Boom. Photographic opportunity knocks!
I love cars and particularly older vintage cars - it's amazing the loving attention to detail and meticulous care that each owner will give to their baby.
On this day, I'm so glad I took my camera out with me. I plan to make the black and white mustang in this series into print.
