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’

Canon G1X post processed in Capture One 9.
From the same location in Dubbo, NSW as the previous post.
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.
Hipstamatic 300 @ Cockatoo Island
Liking the ability to set focus on the 300. Cockatoo Island is an interesting place, full of unexpected photographic finds, most of which I’ve yet to fully explore. I think you’d pretty much need a couple of days and permission to get into the interesting places. Further down the road maybe.
A gigantic roll of newsprint backed by Bondi headlands and rolling cloud. Didn’t make much sense to me at the time but I loved the patent contradiction of once valued and sought after media impressions rolled into temporary stasis. A continuum of information rendered senseless.
