Seventy Three

August 27th, 2012

I hadn’t shot this section of this drain in a good five years, mostly because it’s painfully small, and ultimately isn’t quite as impressive as the awesomeness one finds much further downstream.  But, it’s a great little section of stonework, and in fact was probably my first stone drain, back in the day (the Toadie bridge doesn’t count).

Repetition

August 14th, 2012

It’s a challenge to drag new perspectives out of a location you’ve visited on many occasions.  It’s easy to fall into the same patterns, the same compositions, the same lighting.  But, the challenge is what makes it worthwhile.

August 3rd, 2012

Dirty Orange

Just when I think I’ve settled on an approach to lighting such spaces as these, I realise I’ve changed it all.  And, in some cases, I find myself back where I started.

The Old Way

July 5th, 2012

Once upon a time, a creek ran through the centre of what’s now Brisbane’s central business district. The exact path is lost to the ages now, and no doubt it changed over time anyway, as watercourses do, but we do have its remnant fossil: the enclosed storm water drainage system built in the mid 1870s.

High Tide All The Way

July 5th, 2012

Draining alone is arguably not a great idea, but I seem to keep doing it anyway, despite plenty of opportunities for company. And, even after social draining. This evening, it was Checkmate, then Mudslide.
