In terms of posting interesting photos of the nooks and crannies of Sydney, this guy has me beaten by a country mile. His webiste is brilliant - have a look.
However, he died last week at the ripe old age of 93, so if I last that long, I have another 42 years to put together a collection that is half as good. My bike has taken me to a lot of the spots that he's photographed, but whoever takes his photos (a son?) is much better at finding an interesting vantage point and framing the shot. I just tend to point and click without much thought.
It's nice to know that someone else shared a passion for photographing the quirky and bizarre things that you can see whilst getting a bit of exercise. It also shows that taking the path less beaten can reveal the most fascinating things. For me, it's a nice reminder that exercise should not be about getting from A to B by the shortest possible route in the least amount of time. A meandering course that involves a few stops can do just as much for your physical fitness, whilst doing wonders for your mental fitness and motivation.
RIP Alan. What a legend.
