Sunrise Crane

When I arrived at Hurstville the other morning I had a few minutes to kill, so I went to a rooftop parking area to catch some of the sunrise. I saw this and felt a strong desire to take a photo.

As with a few other photos of structures and machinery that I’ve taken, I feel as though this has an ominous feel. At the same time it sort of feels like a form of waking up. I feel conflicted as I like the colour of the sunrise and the way it works with the crane and the building; it has a pleasantness to it, but at the same time it feels rather unpleasant.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-eleventh Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Everyday Objects“.

I’m not sure as to how it is in other places, but cranes in Sydney have become incredibly commonplace. It’s almost uncommon to see one in quite a few places, as well as the objects of which they are working with.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This one is hosted Patti. Next week’s is hosted by Leya.

I recommend checking out how people are interpreting the challenges. I also recommend joining in. It’s a growing, fun community.

I hope you enjoy.
