Shoot Buoys in a Pond

Photography Prints Ok, it is not a pond: It is a tidal pool.

If you have never seen the tidal pool, ask any of the locals in Kingscote to point you in the right direction. They are nice people, they will.

These five photographs were shot about 3 pm, the perfect time of the day to capture moments and things in ideal light, casting sufficient to show all the craggy lines of each buoy in high macro.

Plus an extra shot. This is a combination of rusted corrugated iron and a windmill on family property on Kangaroo Island:

Orange Clover 

I’m adding new artwork to my Pixels photo gallery (formerly Fine Art America).

Now that we’ve moved to Kangaroo Island, both my style and genré has changed dramatically. No longer do I see modern highrise architecture. Heritage architecture is few and far between, or else difficult to peruse without visiting private property.

So I have turned back to flowers and organic artwork, and enjoying the post production aspect. 

Here’s one I uploaded last night:



As it has been quite some time since I uploaded to this gallery, last night I discovered they offer a new medium to view my artwork upon: Coffee Mugs! Lucky you! 

I, The Photograph Reviewer

In mid 2016 I created this video where I review the why, where and how of seventeen of my own photographs. By the time I decided to edit the production, I had removed a few photographs from the online photo gallery they are in – yet I decided to go forward.

Finally, completed, here it is for easy viewing. Below it are links to every photograph. Take a moment to view them – then maybe buy a few. Or else buy a tshirt.

Printing for More Than Art’s Sake

This story amuses me every time I read it: MissyMwac’s family and friends were gobsmacked when she printed all her phone photosthe concept was completely foreign to them!

Yes, it is satire. Heavy satire.

Yet it is a reminder that very little photography of my children, my nephew’s and niece’s birthdays, nor my family moments, is available to view outside of my archives.

Art is very important, yet printing photography of family & friends enjoying life is the best preservation of history.

That said:

With any available finances, I plan to print and frame more of my Kangaroo Island artwork in 2017.

I’m already planning a selection for exhibition either in Adelaide or on Kangaroo Island (or maybe both) during SALA 2017.

Adelaide Fringe is Where?

Today saw the release of the Adelaide Fringe Guide (17 Feb – 19 March 2017)

“The Fringe is a staple diet for most South Australians … for both regular and consumers … of comedy, cabaret, theatre, music, visual arts, circus acts and digital media”
(Paraphrased from The Hon. Jack Snellings welcome message on page 2)

As I am currently based on Kangaroo Island for the foreseeable future, my first thought was if anything being shown here. Then I wondered if anything was being shown outside the Adelaide CBD?

From page 130 to 132 is the Event Index showing an alphabetical listing of the physical locations. Page 133 to 138 is all the Venues in alpha’ order. 

But I don’t see what I need:

  • An alpha’ listing of all the suburbs and towns holding all the events

A cursory glance spotted Blackwood, Tanunda, Mount Gambier, Kapunda. Even the website doesn’t offer any option to seek by town!

But imagine being an overseas tourist staying at Mt Barker being handed the ‘Guide and told “There’s heaps to see, check it out!” 

Firstly, they barely know where they are. They don’t know how far away the city is from them. They don’t know the name of buildings. With no simple listing of all the events in Mt Barker, they may give up and settle for beer pong with the fridge contents.

If I have to make a phone call to determine this information, I wonder if they are searching a database or the guide itself? If they are using a database, why isn’t that available via the WWW for the public to seek through? In this era of the Internet, it would not be difficult to incorporate into their website.

It’s going to be a lengthy exercise to determine if anything is held on Kangaroo Island. Feel free to comment below if you have found out yet!

Art on Tapestry

I display a LOT of my photographs and a fair amount of my graphic design on Redbubble.com. Recently they introduced a new product to display our artwork: Wall Tapestries

So now I am upgrading my graphics to see how good they look on this medium. Gotta admit, not all suit it. But here are a few that do:

Running on Empty Hot Skinny Ribs Be an Individual

Spiralling Sharks Last Thread

Keys to Success Orange Leaf

BBQ Black Pattern I, Australian

Bonus:

I found a site freely advertising one of my PHOTOGRAPHER tshirt designs. Gotta love that!
