There are major infrastructure works going on in and around Sunshine that will continue on for several years. I presume that the removal of the trees in and around this site for part of these infrastructure projects.
As these do not fall within my pc 3020 Tumblr boundaries I may or may not add them to that Tumblr project. Given that these pictures were made early in spring in the morning means the backlit sky was not too much of problem but in summer I would need to arrive here before the sun rose or as it set in the west. It was a bleak and brisk spring morning this day.
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.
This cable release has been in my possession for at least 25 years. It still functions perfectly and has never let me down.
