Re: House in Wallace

Brilliant and so poignant. That rose(?) bush under the front window flourishes beautifully in neglect. The uncut lawn not so much.
Mick, shooting only 2 sheets of film in 9 minutes is utterly disciplined. With a subject like this I might have let loose and exposed (wasted?) a dozen.

Re: Epiphyte, White Wood.

Thanks Mick and Walter . The sun-bleached dead tree was in the Noosa National Park just over my back fence. The forms were mildly elegant but needed a "kicker". One summer the little plant emerged from the hollow in the tree and completed the scene. Just like a dot turns a line into an exc...

Re: House Dergholm

The place has obviously been art-directed? Every detail has a twist or "kicker" to entertain the eye: smoking chimney, air-con on the wall, satellite dish above the roof ridge, disasterously tilted verandah roof, gap-tooth picket fence, long term trailer parking....and it goes on. At least...

Re: Petrified Forest

Clever abstraction, no sense of scale.That irregular foreground shape could be a metre across or it could be a mesa with a pine tree growing in the gulch on the right: engaging visual tension.

Re: A Giant Leap Forward

What a find! No worries, just put a battery in it and maybe a new diff and you'll have a fine little ute.
Actually, photography done cleanly shows things as they are: time, change, decay, renewal: confirmation of the grand cosmic cycle. Thanks Walter.

Tanned Nude with Sand.

Same bold and cheerful model as at Granite Bay but with sand and strong cross-lighting emphasising form and texture. https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1616/25510404475_608c2f77cb_c.jpg Tanned Nude with Sand Gelatin-silver photograph on Ilford VC FB photographic paper, image size 24.4cm X 19.6cm, from a ...

Re: Reeds and Grass, Mount Buffalo

8x10 at it's best. This is a subject that needs resolution and tonal coherence of the smallest details to reward the eye and that's exactly what it got: just perfect.
Could it be Lake Catani?
