A traveller’s tale

A traveller’s tale

I took myself to the National Gallery of Victoria to see some work shown for the Festival of Photography  It showcased the diversity of approaches to this medium but apart from Bill Henson, nothing really made me feel anything, although there were some techniques I would like to explore.

There are constraints and there are limitations.

The constraint in this image is using an iPhone with a fixed lens. Normally I would get closer and there was no fence to prevent me but there was a sign pointing out the risk of spreading diseases between vines and asking people to stay back. It’s a limitation but I accept that as the price for enjoying the occasional glass of wine from my local vineyard…

Time is a limitation too. In a week or so, the nets will be removed as the grapes are picked. Next year I will be back with a longer lens.

Last weeks of Autumn

Last weeks of Autumn

– Spent the entire weekend dog-proofing the yard and yet ironically nearly lost Bodhi when he took off through an open gate this morning. The great thing was he came back when called.

At least I got a few minutes to myself as the sun was setting and there was some terrific backlight to work with. While this isn’t the prettiest Autumn leaf they all end up this way eventually.
