Re: Bottle Tree, Toowoomda

The shadow play on the lawn is fabulous, as is your ability to get coverage as evenly spread as it is.

Very nice one there Maris.

Mick.

Re: House in Wallace

Thank you Maris. Not too flash happy with the multiple exposures these days, that said, I can sometimes let loose. However, I only travel with 6 sheets of FP4+, 4 sheets of Bergger and 4 sheets of Foma loaded at any time. Loading more is easy as I only need to walk back to the camper to unload reloa...

Re: House in Wallace

Well, as luck would have it, I exposed another sheet 9 minutes later, more side on. I was looking at the negs on the light table and couldn't resist scanning this one. I like the house better, but the steel factory at the rear is quite distracting; at least that is what I thought. Shen Hao HZX45-IIA...

House in Wallace

We visited some friends a couple of weeks ago, on the way home we decided to stop somewhere and have some food and play a game of scrabble, as you do. I headed to Wallace as I knew there was a Butter factory there from the many times I traversed Ballarat Road (highway) in the seventies; before the f...

Re: Dead Tree in Sun, Girraween.

Thank you for the explanation.

Are you going further with this technique, or are you happy with where you are?

In the eighties there was a fair amount of Worhol copying in the advertising world; imitation was certainly quite flattering to him I thought.

Re: Epiphyte, White Wood.

Quite a nice rendition of the trunks, funnily enough, those trunks look like they belong to a dead tree, yet, unlike a parasite, an epiphyte doesn't live off and possibly be the demise of the host. Nice one there Maris. Even allowing for the fact you are using a 300mm, it looks as though you are rea...

Re: Dead Tree in Sun, Girraween.

Very interesting, I like the technique and this image, not quite in the same style as Andy Warhol, but a definite likeness. His silk screen stuff is very interesting, more so in the flesh. I was able to see some at an exhibition in Germany, in the flesh they are really something. Care to elaborate o...

Re: Swing Bridge

Thanks Walter. About the same old tired stuff, maybe, maybe not. I find that I can get quite interested in something over small details. For instance, my rock picture at Bailey's Rocks, was inspired as I walked past and saw the framing. If it wasn't for the framing I would have kept on walking. I di...

Swing Bridge

This was in Portland Victoria at the edge of its CBD, so to speak. Even had some ducks in, but they didn't line up. Learnt a lesson with this, I tried the 65mm, but it was too wide at that angle. Probably would have been alright if I had been standing about 1m from the bank, in the water. Shen Hao H...

Re: House Dergholm

Thanks Maris. It certainly is an interesting house. When my in-laws came to Australia from Germany around 30+ years ago, we stopped in our Kombi Kamper for a drink. While walking around stretching our legs my mother in-law mentioned words to the effect, "why do they leave houses like that stand...
