I’ve long had a passion for old movies – mostly talkies, but silents as well… so a couple of weeks ago I put together a shoot with a bunch of models and make-up artists and rented a studio… Costumes and props and whoosh! We were shooting like it was 1922… I’m too busy at theContinue reading “A few portraits”
Visited the famed Highline Park in Manhattan last month – end of autumn, all the wild flowers gone to seed. A wee bit desolate. Snapped these two shots of milkweed – and a bunch of other stuff… but haven’t got to them yet. Had to share these…
… and sometimes a bit of sepia
Not fighting, not rioting, not protesting… these young men just burst into song on the footpath on Queen Street, sounding way too good to not have a recording contract. So glad I just happened to be standing there…
If the birds and the bees can see ultraviolet and infrared, well… what’s to stop a small herd of bull calves from seeing disco lights in the morning mist? Or maybe they were just so happy to see me, they were overjoyed. I’ll always wonder.
The forest on a misty morning, a two-storey house with many many rooms, nooks and crannies. All sorts of creatures can live there. Including you. And me.

Funny how after a few weeks pass, you can go back to your photos and discover something new. Of course I knew I took some of the balloons being deflated, but none of them really wowed me. Had a look tonight and thought… hmmm… I rather like this.
Another pinhole in the garden… what I realise, in addition to wanting to do a lot more pinhole photography, is that I need to do a series of ant-cam, fairy-cam, shoe-cam shots. I’m not real big on macro photography (just a bit big)… but that’s not what I’m thinking. More like this, capturing the senseContinue reading “In the Garden”
Did a workshop today on pinhole photography, something I’ve never tried before. Totally fascinating, the most basic kind of photography. I built my camera from a cat-food can, duct tape, electrical tape, some card and a bit of an aluminium oven liner. It’s rather a work of art on its own, though it could useContinue reading “Nasty Pinhole”
