Early morning at Quakers Hill shops.

This is one of those rare instances where I’ve actually gone somewhere intentionally and with something specific in mind.

The act of taking a photograph is something that for me is determined by circumstance more than anything else. It’s seldom intentional, more often than not simply the act of selecting random moments from the stream of the scrutiny of my gaze. I look at everything; and every now and then things present me with either the ‘take me now’ scenario or throw out the challenge ‘I’m ordinary, make me more than’

So this ‘date’ with light was different. I could grow to like it.

Cactus Child

My partner spotted these in Wheeler’s Lane during a recent trip to Dubbo in Central NSW. Initially thought to be a night flowering cactus, a little research proved them to be a standard (but beautiful, non the less) flowering cacti that flower in the cool of night and close as the heat builds under the big sky during the day. For me they’re a very ‘sharmanic’ plant with loose associations to my teenage years and the writing of Carlos Castanenda.

Views from windows; typically unforgiving in that what you have is for the most part what you shoot. Finding the sweet spot in what’s in front of you calls for continued culling of non essentials. The ‘day to day’ fascinates me, finding the edge in the ordinary moment. However…….

……….Great coffee, food and service 🙂
