Daily Travels #1




I am a girl who takes public transport very heavily. The fact that I do not drive (at all) makes me very dependent on public transport. It really annoys me when people ask me- wow! You don't drive? Why? I just don't- shut up haha. I also happen to commute at times at ridiculous times of the morning having to catch trains anywhere between 4:30am and 6am which is a really strange time. The mood and noise is very different both in terms of people and scenery. 

I showed my dad a few photographs I had edited and discussed the appropriateness of the black and white filter. He immediately started talking of places in Sydney he thought were beautiful but never had the time to capture. I really like the stillness the black and white filter affects on images. Just simple things become almost grand monuments in time- raising them to a greater quality. These locations are very mundane but there is something I like about the simplicity of it.

This allows me to create meaning to my daily commutes and is something I am really looking forward to in the future and adding a little bit of photography into my blog.

  1. Love these photos! I'd hate to have to travel at that time in the morning - I don't get out of bed until as late as possible! x

  2. People always question why I don't drive...Just because one can drive at what? 15? In the USA doesnt mean everyone has to get a license. Love the pictures <3

    1. I think in Australia it's 16 and my parents initially wouldn't let but now I just don't have the time. I do want to drive in the future. Thank you Haley :)
