Photographer's Note

It was one of those hot summer afternoons last year. I just bought my new camera and was more than happy to experiment with it. I waited for the sun to set. I had to wait until around half past eight at night before it got dark slowly and the sky started to show its beautiful colour.

I followed the road near my house, chasing the part of the sky where the sun set. Surprisingly, I found a small hill just next to the junction of the road I was following. I climbed it. The view was just perfect. I took some pictures. Too bright! The sun was still strong enough.

I waited until the sun disappeared from the sky and left the sky with majestic colour. I took some pictures. Love it. My first silhouette pictures...

This is one of them.

Well, this shot could be taken anywhere around the world... =)

It actually was taken around my former unit in southern part of Swan River. The power-line pole was one of the power-line poles lining on both sides of Karel Avenue (not a main artery itself, but connecting two main arteries in Southern Perth: Leach Highway and South Street). The presence of power-line poles showed that the suburb (Willetton) where I used to live was an old suburb. The new ones would have the power-lines underground.

Well, I've moved. Unfortunately, to another old suburb with power-line poles everywhere...
