Melbourne 10/10 @ 8.10pm

Melbourne 10/10 @ 8.10pm This year's OMOE took place just after sunset time in Melbourne, Australia, and I chose to go to a new spot to take a shot of the CBD, from Birraurng Marr Park.
 It was a mad rush to get there and park on time, as the city was busy, but I made it, and just escaped a massive storm that struck about 10 minutes afterwards! 
 This image is a typical view of Melbourne at night, with the reflection of the building in the Yarra river, and a long exposure (13 sec) enabled me to smooth the water and catch some of the tram lights on the bridge ...

Camden Australia

Camden Australia I had made a terrible mistake with the time I had to shoot, I thought I was to shoot at 22:10, when in fact it was 20:10 so I had to race out of the house and travel less than 10 mins to my home town of Camden. I had intended to take my shot in Sydney of the Opera House, but for plan B, I set up my tripod in the middle of our main street on a roundabout and with many people looking on, wondering what I was up to, waited till the time was 20:10 and shot the attached image. Camden is a historic suburb of Sydney, New South Wales, located 65 kilometres south-west of the Sydney central business district. Camden is the administrative centre for the local government area of Camden Council and is a part of the Macarthur region, the population is about 70,000, some of the famous people from Camden include: Steven Bradbury, short track speed skater who won Australia's first Winter Olympics gold medal Rob Hirst, drummer with the band Midnight Oil Mat Mladin, world motorcycle champion ...

OMOE Sydney 20:10:10 10/10/2015 and at f/10 and 10s

OMOE Sydney 20:10:10 10/10/2015 and at f/10 and 10s Pity the year isn't 1010 but cameras weren't around in those days. I practiced all evening prior this shot to get the second right which I did each time except for this actual image where it is a second early. Talk about a premature shutter button depress. A couple stopped by and asked what I was doing i told them about OMOE and Kujaja.com they were impressed! Taken on a cool Spring evening in Sydney in t-shirt and shorts. All for a good cause. ...

Sydney Olympic Park

Sydney Olympic Park 15 years ago this cauldron was the centrepiece of the Sydney Olympic Games. Now it is incorporated into a park outside the main olympic stadium and is a water fountain during the day. Whilst I was setting up for this shot, some young boys were kicking a ball around while the rest of the family were enjoying dinner on a nearby bench. There was also a constant flow of people streaming past on their way to a Kiss concert in the arena just off to the right of this shot. A precinct utilised and enjoyed by many. The symbol of the Olympic games - the world coming together doing something they love - resonates with this wonderful OMOE project. ...

Untitled

Untitled I was in one of the museums in Indonesia , where I was photographing this. That statue is a statue of a woman with a traditional dress in Minangkabau . I like it because there are elements of the water , the sky , the statue of a woman and a man there. I took this picture at the late afternoon but the sky in this area do not seem bright . smog in Sumatra, Indonesia changed everything, for the worse . I was a Indonesian street photographer and I am very happy in the public areas . ...

Gospel Truth

Gospel Truth (Exclusive photo)Time: 03:10:36pm Trust me, no plan or strategy works in day light shot, only if you want to shot by depending on natural lights. I had some frames/ layouts in my mind for the place I went to. But unluckily the time here it was 3:10pm at noon and here it's end of the summer now. On top that its been more than a month, a burning sun ruling on our head. Same went for that day and it was a shiny sunny day with a race of playful clouds. Now lemme put in that way, no one can make an idea how heaviness it could be on the time. I was like running and running like hell to get a better view and 80% of times I killed to look for a better place. Yet luckily I've found a place with a little portion of water, like a small pond and I saw the sun reflections on the water, what actually stop me there. Since I was using a wide lens It was a bit hard for me to get the sun and the sun reflection on the water simultaneously. Moreover I was all set with some of free click and it was kind of okay for the burning sunny day. Unfortunately or fortunately, just a few seconds before when the time arrived I was a bit down for a while, because so many clouds came by the sun. As a result the camera setting I have fixed for the sunny day was ruined in a way or other. I am glad to admit that, last year OMOE, 2014, I was the first someone from our country, Bangladesh and last time it was heavy raining at middle of the night at 03:00am. This time its completely opposite. Last time I submitted a colour reflected night street shot and this time, I was thinking of to submit a black and white shot. Hope it will make a a home in the book like before. Cheers from Bangladesh Ruka ...

The Iconic Kuwait Towers

The Iconic Kuwait Towers My time was 12:10. One week ago the temperatures were averaging around 43C. But today it was a cool 35C. It was sunny and bright with a cloudless sky. The Kuwait Towers, designed by a Danish architect, are a group of three towers in Kuwait City, standing on a promontory into the Arabian Gulf. They were officially inaugurated in March 1979 and are rated as a landmark and symbol of modern Kuwait. The main tower is 187 metres (613.5 ft) high and carries two spheres. The lower sphere holds in its bottom half a water tank of 4,500 cubic metres and in its upper half there is a restaurant that accommodates 90 people, a café, a lounge and a reception hall. The upper sphere, which rises to 123 metres above sea level and completes a full turn every 30 minutes, holds a café. The second tower is 147 metres high and serves as a water tower. The third tower houses equipment to illuminate the two larger towers. The towers holds 9,000 cubic metres of water altogether. Approximately 41,000 enameled steel discs cover the three spheres in eight shades of blue, green and gray, recalling the tiled domes of historic mosques. The discs are arranged in spiral patterns around the spheres. According to the architect, the Kuwait Tower group refers to ideals of humanity and technology, symbolized by the globe and the rocket. ...

The Treasury in Petra

The Treasury in Petra It was my first visit to the historic city of Petra, Jordan and I really didn't know what to expect. I packed a backpack full of water, a tripod, and some lenses and headed off to see what I could see. Walking through The Siq, an amazing geologically formed canyon, and having it suddenly open to the towering Treasury is truly an experience I will not soon forget. Luckily, the large crowd that was in front of the edifice cleared out as I was preparing for my shot and I was able to capture this image with two Bedouin men portraying Roman soldiers resting in the foreground. ...

Just Married

Just Married The light and time were never going to make for a great landscape image here in Poltava, Ukraine (12.10pm). After frantically trying to find something decent I came upon this young couple celebrating their wedding day under the central city rotunda. Completely candid shot. Image available in colour but I prefer the black & white version. ...

Shabbat -   OMOE 2015

Shabbat - OMOE 2015 I went to the top floor of the building where I live in Tel Aviv. Saturday, 10 minutes passed noon. Another hard working week behind. A new hard working week ahead. The time for rest. The time for peacefulness of soul. Even cars are at rest. Many don’t drive on Saturdays here. The park is scented with late summer. Some people are celebrating a kid’s birthday. Some are lying on the grass. A boy is throwing ball to his young father. A baby is giggling. Life goes on. Another Saturday… ...

on the road with Dimitar

on the road with Dimitar I was preparing so long for this minute. I knew I was going to be on the road to Croatia on a sailing trip. And I hoped to get the sea into my photo... So I was not very happy when I realized that the timing of the trip was set for few hours later. Instead to the sea I reached only to Belgrade, under heavy rain and heavy clouds. The Dimitar cyclone, that hit the Balkans last week, was in it's full shape. However... the skies didn't hesitated to make some drama on the road line I shot while traveling. Hope you find it interesting. ...

The Last Warm Saturday - Accidentally OMOE 2015

The Last Warm Saturday - Accidentally OMOE 2015 I didn't plan to participate in the project as I had a meeting appointed before noon on Saturday Oct 10, 2015. I was not supposed to take photos on my way to the meeting but as I choose the shorter way across the park and I saw this shadows play I just couldn't stop myself :) So I did it but without checking the time and not even remembering of the project. Tonight I uploaded this photo to enter the Shades & Lights competiton and I noticed that it was taken exactly at the time settled for the project. So here I am :)) ...

A Cave with a View

A Cave with a View For this year's OMOE i decided to revisit a special spot on Lion's Head, Wally's Cave, for its picture perfect view of Table Mountain. In Cape Town it was a misty spring day with light drizzle during the hike up but once in the cave I felt like I had the whole mountain to myself for the next hour as i waited for 11:10 to strike. The many practice rounds resulted in quiet a few humorous photos as i ran barefooted in the cave back and forth between my camera and the entrance practicing getting the timer right with various silhouette poses. Luckily by the magic minute a little bit of sun came out from the clouds and I now get to share one of the amazing outdoor spaces this city has to offer with the whole world! ...

three swans ...

three swans ... my second take from boat "stefanie" on lake hallstatt for OMOE 2015 edited as a BW - lucky shot indeed ;) The Hallstätter See is a lake in the Upper Austrian share of the Salzkammergut and is situated north of the Dachstein mountain range. To the east of the Hallstätter See, you will find the Sarstein, a mountain. The Hallstätter See is famous in Austria and beyond; in fact, alongside with the Mondsee and the Wolfgangsee, it is probably the one Salzkammergut that receives the most international attention in the form of foreign tourists. There town of Hallstatt is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and famous for its remoteness, its salt mines, Celtic heritage and the Neolithic culture that was named after the town. Hallstatt can be found at the western shore of the lake. The Hallstätter See is 5.9 kilometres long, 2.3 kilometres wide and more than 100 metres deep. Its water level can be managed via a little dam. Tourists usually do a combination of sightseeing in Hallstatt and either a cruise or a trip with the Zillen or Platten, long boats which are essentially the same as English punts. ...
