A list of Adelaide Photography Spots

Adelaide OvalIt took me a while to generate this list.  I went through my portfolio of photographs in the last 10 years.  I looked at postcards.  I looked through on-line archives of Adelaide photographs.  I was intrigued to see what our city has to offer.  This is my list.  I have divided it into two halves.  Those photographs that are well known and acknowledged, and the second list of lesser known Adelaide sites.  The second list I called Adelaide’s best kept secrets.  This is the list that I want to explore.  I asked other members of the club to add to this list and you will see their suggestions on subsequent pages.  These are not the photographs that you generally associate with our city.  You need a second look to see where they come from.  Perhaps not the ‘postcard’ shots – but certainly worth taking time out to explore.

(Note: Many of these locations feature in the back archive of Camera Clips – the old pdf versions) so have a look there as well.)
