Have you ever imagined Adelaide through the eye of a lens? If you haven’t, you have a day to start imagining. This Saturday Ken Lyons will be holding a photo walk around Adelaide’s Rundle Mall, Hindley Street and the Riverbank precinct. Meeting in front of the Telstra Shop at 4pm, on the corner of Rundle Mall and Pultney Street, the trek will capture the Mall to begin with, and then follow into Hindley Street.
Squatting down to eye level and popping your left leg out to the side to get that delicate shot, that isn’t ever really going to look as graceful as you’d wish. However, least this Saturday you’ll have a whole group of people to join you in any and every pose you wish. The photo walk is focused around relaxing and enjoying the surrounds Adelaide has to offer, no matter your skill set or lack of. Bring out your tripods and all the equipment you can possibly carry, to join in on the photography festivities.
Pull on those comfy shoes and rug up because there’s plenty to see and “snap-up”. After exploring Rundle Mall and Hindley Street, you’ll make your way over to the SAHMRI building on North Terrace, via the Morphett Street Bridge street art, to photograph the architectural masterpiece. Finally, onto the River Torrens precinct leading towards the Adelaide Oval and the riverbank around sunset to capture the natural display of ochre, pink and red light.
After a snap-happy day, head onto the intersection of King William Street and North Terrace to catch the train or bus home, or grab a well earned tucker.
