Individual perspectives will differ on the aesthetic nature of the interference.
I am interested in your thoughts…
Recently went to climb (a generous word) Mountt Kosciuszko and took a few pictures along the way. At 2228m, Mount Kosciuszko is Australia’s highest mainland peak, quite small really, but still it is the largest Mountain you can easily climb in Australia territory. The two other taller Mountains, are way south towards the Antarctic.
On the flight from Canberra to Adelaide (Mount Kosciuszko is around 2 hours drive from Canberra), the flight attendant asked me what I had been doing. I mentioned walking to the top of Kosciuszko from Thredbo. She replied, ‘Oh.. I think I have heard of that, is it near Canberra?’ I mentioned it was Australia’s highest mountain, she looked puzzled.
Saw this scrawl on the street near where we live in Adelaide. All major religions have a dark side to their past, and many even now have fringe elements that are unacceptable.
I can imagine the person who wrote this believes in a different god. But why attack so ferociously. Perhaps the person who wrote this should consider the tenets of their own religion.
Atheists like myself would see this as a perfect example of why all religion is ultimately destructive, but of course you’d expect me to say that!
In any event, it is sad to see real evidence of people with such intolerance.
In 2011 Lance Armstrong was awarded the keys to Adelaide by the Adelaide City Council for his contributions to South Australia, the Tour Down Under and cancer research.
This week, the Adelaide City Council voted 6-1 to remove the honour bestowed to Lance Armstrong. Today whilst in the Adelaide Mall, I saw this billboard above the Nike store. Without condoning the vandalism, it shows the sentiment here in Adelaide and South Australia towards the recent revelations.
My daughter went to a ballet rehearsal at Adelaide University. They wouldn’t let us watch. I wandered around for a while and this is what I found.
On one of the walls is a small white piece of paper with poem by Anna Akhmatova, a 20 century poet from Russia. I drink to home, that is lost, To evil life of mine, To loneness in which we’re both, And to your future, fine, -- To lips by which I was betrayed, To eyes that deathly cold, To that that the world is bad and that We were not saved by God.
These photos were taken with Kodak Portra 160NC film, ideally designed for portraits. Quite an unusual range of blues emerged, when combined with a circular polarising filter (CPL)
Scavenging seagulls at Henley Beach (Adelaide). They were hanging into a very stiff breeze, just waiting for a tasty morsel.
I shot this with a wide angle lens (15mm), so was actually much closer to these gulls than it appears.
There are many thatched fences in our suburb, I don’t really like the look of them, but the late afternoon sun provided a nice contrast.
The wall is graffiti free at the moment, I liked the similar tones throughout this photo, it really lacks any contrasting colours at all.
We collected the lemons from the tree i our back yard, my daughter added the flower to the bowl, and it looked a little odd.
The toys in our backyard provided some quite contrasting and eye-catching colours.
Tangerine… I saw three perspective that sort of blended and contrasted at the same time.
Eclectic… I liked the eclectic textures on display late in the afternoon.
Lost… self-explanatory really, this little bright red beaming berry lost amongst the bushes.
Redline… is a re-shoot of an earlier work, I suppose I just like the contrasts here. I adjusted mid tones to increase the contrast, but not too much. The wall is quite striking, particularly when lit with the late beaming sun beaming.
I saw this gnome-like garden ornament whilst walking home from the shops.
The wizard seemed quite taken back by the brightly coloured flower in his path.
Whilst walking home I turned and noticed the ‘star’ background to the silhouette of a tree in winter.
The Adelaide Federal Magistrates Court.
I like to photograph when it is raining and dull, the eveness of difused light creates studio like conditions.
