Sydney Street Photographer Colour Challenge: Blue

Just testing out my new Panasonic G7 with the photowalk around Newtown for the colour challenge that the organiser from the Meetup Group "Sydney Street Photographers" organised. This was usually a fun event where each person pick out a random colour and for the rest of the photo walk just shoot the colour selected. I was happened to be late for the start so I called Raymond one of the organiser and he picked out blue for me. 

The reason I was late was I went and bought myself a new camera which can shoot 4K videos. I don't have the computer power to process that kind of file yet. But my plan to go on another extended trip so I want to capture the best video that money can buy right now which  the Panasonic G7 suits perfectly. I was waiting for year to get so I'm excited to test it out.

As for the photo walk, I didn't get to know other photographers I would like because I was late but the photo walk was always an interesting event anyway. Especially in Newtown where the people are fashionable and there always interesting subjects. Also I bumped into Matt a friend I met during my cherry picking career in Young last year. I recommended Newtown to him and he listened. Small world indeed.
