I have decided to give myself a bit more structure and fun in 2022. So, I have decided to make my Thursdays a day for learning, adventure and fun. I have found a photography challenge I want to do each week. However, I also realised there are so many amazing locations in this beautiful city of Sydney that I haven't explored ... and they could make for some great photography locations. So each Thursday, I am going to push myself with this challenge and also to find a new place to explore. When I was making the list of options for the locations, I found the Rainbow Room at Green Square Library. Google it, its amazing!! So, I though what a perfect way to start! So, I headed off, camera in hand last Thursday into the Green Square Library. I was amazed at how anxious I was, realising how much I stick to the safety of what I know. That is when I realised this is exactly what I should be doing. I'm quite timid and shy (when I don't have a camera in my hands) but I like pushing myself because on the other side of that anxiety is where amazing things happen. So, I found the library. Ventured in. A lady explained there is the library section, a lovely garden, and on the other side of that, a tower with the Rainbow Room and if you go to the top there is a view of the area. I was allowed to take photos, but not of people and especially not kids. No problem. So ... down the stairs I trotted. When I went into the library, it is so funky, I just loved it! It was bright, colourful, visually interesting, and so welcoming. I headed for the tower .. CLOSED. NOOOOOO!!!!!! Today was not my day to see it. I have to admit, I was gutted. I went back outside to try and get a glimpse, and while my eyes could see it (and it is amazing, even from a crap vantage point), my camera could not (hence no photos of it). Sad panda. :( But ... the library building itself is really cool. A triangle, then the circle garden, then the tall tower. I then had a little look around, and what I found was awesome. Every turn I made, there was another funky spot. There was murals with mirrors and 3D art, there were alleyways with plants, there were alleyways with garage doors (if you know me well, you know how much I love a funky door), there were fantastic textured coloured walls, there were stunning cafes ... and then ... the architecture of the apartment buildings were so spectacular! It really is a photograhper's paradise! Every turn I could see where I would pose couples, families and even corporate clients. So, if you have thought about a funky urban photoshoot, please let me know and we can go here. I would love to show you around!!
