OMOE 2014 Bondi Beach Australia (at KJ's request)

OMOE 2014 Bondi Beach Australia (at KJ's request) The Sun rose further to the left of the headland in fact it looked as if it rose inland by the time was up over the horizon. Occurs during winter in the southern hemisphere for obvious reasons. Big Stopper at 55s. You may be able to see what look like sensor spots in the water but they are actually surfers on their boards waiting for 2m wave sets to come through. You can see rain streaming down from the clouds on the far right. Apparently a pod of whales on their migration path could also be seen (not in this image) going right to left for warmer waters I assume as seen by a skateboarder riding inside an empty pool at the skate park at Bondi Beach. ...

7:00:14am in St Kilda, Australia

7:00:14am in St Kilda, Australia (Exclusive photo)For OMOE 2014, I decided to head down to St Kilda, by the bay, to get a nice view of the city at 7am local time (just before the first light). It was a cold but crisp morning, very clear and calm, perfect for this 4s exposure. Only the boat in the background slightly rocked, against the sharp background Also check for the full story on my blog AustralianLightSeeker.blogspot.com.au ...

Bare Island, LaPerouse, Sydney, Australia

Bare Island, LaPerouse, Sydney, Australia As chance would have it, the magic minute here in Sydney, landed on 7am. Being blessed with a sunrise opportunity, I took the chance to photograph one of the many beautiful coast scenes found along the east coast of Australia. The fortified Bare Island is linked by a footbridge making it appear "other worldly", a theme I had envisaged and tried to portray in the final image you see before you The government of the day built an elaborate fort on this island 30 metres off the coast of La Perouse in the early 1880s, seeing the land Captain Cook had described a century earlier as “a small bare island” as a good place to ward off invaders. But from the moment it opened in 1885, there were problems: an 1890 Royal Commission found that inferior concrete had been used and the crumbling fort was decommissioned by 1902. The current museum was originally built as cable station to house the operation of the first submarine telegraph communications cable laid between Australia and Nelson in New Zealand. This cable also served as the first link in telegraph communications between New Zealand and the rest of the world. It now lies under the jurisdiction of the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service and has been utilised as a location in the movie Mission Impossible II. This shot has been on my bucket list for some time now. I finally found the drive this morning to get out and explore "Bare Island". Whilst still dark, I climbed down the cliff face and onto the rock platform. To gain the most from the location, wet feet were inevitable. No mean feat in winter time! As the sun rose at 7am, I fired a series of long exposures allowing the waves to ghost over the rocks. the foreground in this image was brought to life using some simple light painting techniques. You can really see why they call sunrise the magic hour! ...

Brooklyn Bay

Brooklyn Bay I only had limited travel time for this years shoot and wasn't able to travel anywhere too exotic. Fortunately for me there is quaint riverside village about 15-20 minutes away from my house, which is about an hour north of Sydney, Australia. Brooklyn, has a population of 744 and was settled in the late 1800's. There is essentially one main road through 'town' and is a popular spot for fishing and boating. In many ways, Brooklyn is a one of Sydney's best kept secrets. Many people pass it by, completely unaware of it's existence, as they drive along the freeway a little west of town. This shot is of the Hawkesbury River a few metres away from where many people launch their boats. There were quite a lot of boats heading out that morning. ...

Rear view

Rear view This is proof that it was actually raining in some parts of Sydney for OMOE 2014. I had planned on trekking to the Northern Beaches however the sound of rain when the alarm went off meant the development of plan B. Apologies on the exif data - I went to re-set the time just before the shot, however it didn't save. The shot was actually taken at 0701 Sydney time. ...

Sea Cliff Bridge OMOE -2

Sea Cliff Bridge OMOE -2 (Exclusive photo)The Sea Cliff Bridge is a balanced cantilever bridge located just a little North of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia. The $52 million bridge links the coastal villages of Coalcliff and Clifton. Featuring two lanes of traffic, a cycleway and a walkway, the Sea Cliff Bridge boasts spectacular views and is a feature of the scenic Lawrence Hargrave Drive. The Sea Cliff Bridge replaced a section of Lawrence Hargrave Drive that was permanently closed in August 2003 due to regular rock falls. The bridge was officially on 11 December 2005. The Sea Cliff Bridge was named by 11 Year old schoolgirl Makenzie Russell following a naming competition opened to local primary school students. It is a popular location for Love padlocks. The Sea Cliff Bridge is one of only seven off-shore parallel to coast bridges in the world. Woolongong is the 10th Largest City in Australia I took the photos from the ruins of the old road, the fence was fairly easy to climb over and when I got there it was too dark to read the "Keep Out" and "Danger" warning signs. The Sunrise time we had been given for the shoot for the Eastern Australian region was excellent. ...

Apocalypse Hour

Apocalypse Hour (Exclusive photo)This is 2 minutes from my house in Sapporo, Japan. 6a.m on a Sunday morning and industrious Japan turns into a zombie wasteland. Not a person in sight, not even the perpetual stream of students coming to and going from the local high school at the end of the road. I scared away one lone dog walker with my wild bed hair and pajamas, and all I was left with was this empty alleyway when the clock struck. There is no daylight savings in Japan, so by the time I took this photo, the sun had already been up for about two hours, adding to the eerie, deserted streets cape feel. Please note that the time on my camera is roughly 5 minutes fast, but I took this at 6 on the dot! ...

Another day

Another day It’s the Sorae ecological park in Incheon, Korea. It’s a very popular spot especially in summer season. Many photographers were in position already when I arrived at 5:20am. So I couldn’t take it at the best spot. It was rainy in the late night on July.21 So I was worry. Fortunately, the sky was fantastic and very clean at early in the morning on July.22. I setup my camera and took some photos before 6:00am (It’s the OMOE time in Korea.) to take a better photos. I took it with exposure bracketing -1, 0, +1 and I selected -1 stop under exposure one among 18 photos. It was a pleasure to join and share with all of you this One Minite on Earth 2014. Thank you so much OMOE team for this great project! ...

Siti Nurbaya

Siti Nurbaya (Exclusive photo)I was under the Siti Nurbaya's Bridge, Padang, West Sumatra. This morning at 4 am, me and my friends (Street Photo Hunters)take pictures here. The reason why this place was chosen for the activities OMOE 2014, because Siti Nurbaya's Bridge is a historic building in Sumatera. At the night until morning, this place was full of light from the flickering lights of ships and houses. ...

Yellow Night

Yellow Night (Exclusive photo)Many many thanks to Gido and Francisco for making this One Minute On Earth successful. I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Here the One Minute was at 3:00am, 22nd June of midnight and it was so heavy raining on that time. It was completely a different experience, shooting in the rain of night street. The entire street was so empty, wet and the place is far away distance from my place. I could not have any transportation to go there. after long time I got a taxicab and had to hire him. On the top of that it was raining and no one was there, kind of thrilling as well. Yet I enjoyed a lot and here is my result of ONE MINUTE ON EARTH. I hope my photo will be able to get a place in the book. Location: Panthapath, Karwan Bazar, Dhaka, Bangladesh Time: 3:00am ...

Marina Waves (OMOE 2014)

Marina Waves (OMOE 2014) (Exclusive photo)This is a restaurant, Marina Waves, built on reclaimed land jutting out into the sea. With huge reserves of oil, Kuwait has transformed itself, from a desert to a modern country. . I had already decided on my spot days in advance. The time 12:00am in Kuwait. It was hot, 38C (during the day its 49C), windy and slightly dusty. So the sea was choppy and i couldn't get smoother reflection in the water. Besides these problems, the biggest fear, for my wife and I, would have been getting caught by security forces in the middle of the night with a DSLR and a tripod. This is mainly because of the terrorist attacks going on in neighboring Iraq. Luckily got the job done and reached home safe. . I hope this picture does justice and that this project will be a big success. I wish to thank everyone involved in this project. ...

Night Flow...

Night Flow... (Exclusive photo)Staying up all night with various gulps of tea, I made my journey towards the Marina section of the Abu Dhabi state amid hushed travelers on the public bus. Hoping to reach on time and being able to find the perfect spot, I set up my tripod and waited with baited breath as the minutes ticked by to the famed mark of 1:00 a.m. As soon as the watch on my wrist struck one, I snapped the pictures of the architectural area beside the famous Marina Mall of a public bus; akin to the one i had arrived in, passing by at this late hour. It was an exciting experience as well as thrilling as this is a taboo time to be outside due to strict laws against roaming around late at night. After staying awake and working hard to reach my chosen location, taking these shots and experiencing them took all my tiredness away and left me with a sense of pride of being able to be a part of this wonderful project. ...

Istambul @ Midnight

Istambul @ Midnight (Exclusive photo)My first time and it was difficult. A business trip to Istanbul, a weekend spent there with the family, Dinner at the Mikla restaurant (really nice with a wonderful terrace at the top) everything was nice, camara ready but in the rush we forgot the small tripod (only hand bagage...)!!! Solution was 2 benches on the terrace, one for me, another one for the camera...I'll be better prepare next year. Best regards to everybody. Juan ...

Do what you can

Do what you can (Exclusive photo)It happened that 21st June I was in Vilnius, Lithuania and was planning to take some street shots at midnight over there. The city center is usually lively and crowded by young people. However it's not always what and how we plan... Bad weather, no people, no tripod... just me and my Fuji desperate and frustrated going back to the car when suddenly exactly at midnight someone started fireworks on the bank of the river Neris. I was not really ready for this, but I guess I tried to get what I could in that situation - handhold camera and ISO pushed to 6400 just not to loose the shot. That moment I felt united with all the other photographers around the world, who were participating in OMOE, and it made me happy. ...
