Finding one's limits


An attempt at still life on my medium format camera.

I like this shot because I can feel the objects when I look at them. The worn leather ottomon, the prayer bowl that I bought in India and the succulent that I pulled from a pot on my balcony. The smoothness of the leather, the heavy coldness of the bowl, and the crunchiness of the leaves on the stem of the succulent.

Not sure still life is my thing, but perhaps I will try again in the future.

It was easy feeling like I did


An afternoon spent at Centennial Park, Sydney.

I had to complete this as part of a project I was working on which involved placing object in a landscape.

Whilst I was there some kids around 6 or 7 years old were playing in the trees. They built a small fort out of sticks and branches. I asked one of them what it was called. He said it was called "The Everlasting Fort of Knowledge". What an incredible imagination young kids have. Imagine if parents fostered it in to adulthood and children didn't have to lose it? I suppose that's what happened to Bjork.
