Dont just skip over this photo, take a second and read this story aswell, a real eye opener for me personally.
The man pictured (bottom right) caught my attention on Tuesday morning. As i started to shoot the sunrise I noticed the look of
joy on his face as he watched the sun come up, happily clicking away photos on his iPhone. He was standing off to the side but then moved into my shot, I didn’t say anything and allowed him to just ‘be in the moment’, he obviously fekt this was a special moment. Awhile after taking this shot, he came up to me and we began talking, and he told me his story. He’d cleared all the photos off his phone just so he wouldn’t run out of space this morning. After getting everything ready the night before, he woke up at 4:30am just to get down to Cronulla for a sunrise (one sunrise!!). He lives in Parramatta and works in the CBD 6 days a week. As he continued to watch in awe the pure beauty unfolding in front of him, i realised how lucky we truely are and how much we take simple things like that for granted. Before I could turn to him and ask more, he had vanished, most likely rushing off to work, a much happier man.
We really do take so much for granted in life, even simple beauties like this :)
