Yes dear reader; or is that readers? We have been somewhat quiet around these parts. With days to go to the summer holidays here in Australia, I have some catching up to do. So. Let’s begin. I bought a new camera at last. A Canon Powershot 9GX MkII. To say I am impressed with it… Continue reading Annnnd We’re Back!
I am planning on applying for a solo show in the near future at my local community gallery.
The exhibit will be about my experience of Sunshine, in the last 18 years, we moved here in 2000. Initially when I thought of the idea I imagined I would have plenty of imagery. Well after 3 or 4 sessions printing, not so many it seems. This will impact on the timeline for when I exhibit and which dates will suit me.
Here are 18 prints chosen so far. By my calculation 20 to 25 would be a more desirable number. This means more shooting, not a bad thing, I’m just surprised at how few good images I have?
Banksy Painting Spontaneously Shreds Itself Moments After Selling for $1.4 Million at Sotheby’s WOW! Just WOW!
I recently created a new album on flickr, it’s a small repository of images I intend to re-potograph.
The idea was sparked by the above image, which is a place I drive past often and have watched it change dramatically over the years. When I made this picture in 2005 the small group of factories had just been finished.
Over the years small firms have come and gone, painted and repainted the walls. The inevitable graffiti has been there so long I can’t remember when it first appeared? So I went to re-photograph it on Tuesday, and in the process found a part of Sunshine I had not seen before. While this location is technically outside my pc3020 Tumblr boundary I may add some images to it from the day. I will return with film cameras soon too, as there were trees that I think would work well with my ongoing trees idea, and if my solo exhibition about Sunshine gets off the ground I could include images made from there as well.
Here’s a few more images made on the day.
Great article about the history of the 35mm format Here’s an excerpt; too funny! The first commercial Leica was produced eleven years later, in 1924, and for a number of years, “135” or “35mm,” as it was called, was also known as “miniature” format. Most professionals and serious amateurs, who scorned it, at least used… Continue reading More from my inbox

This image was more composed, but seems witty as a piece of graffiti. Again, we are in France as tourists seeing Paris for the first time.
