Portrait: The Elderly
Tell the story of an elderly person through the power of your camera. Capture the lines of their life.

What about if we imagine the life to come? Kids engaging in a practically ancient routine, formation marching in preparing for an Anzac day parade, a cultural custom used in remembrance of wars fought before and to come. A task, and performance used to link the new with the old, to install a convention fresh into the minds of youth.

Parade marching is now a relic that exists infrequently, used seemingly only now in civic services linked with a proud military history. It is of course a practical physical expression that links memory with fresh experience.

Participants are proud, clapped on by loving families whom remember the marches they participated in, whom themselves remember proudly their parents and grand parents. The custom is continued and supported, and this generation will look back here remembering the pride, the ceremony, the audience, and most likely will support it once more when they have children of their own.

The lines of the life of the elderly, what ever your opinion on conflict and war, is symbolically represented and celebrated within the lines of these children creating their fresh memories.

Walking around the city of an evening is still the best way to enjoy it. Less people, interesting shapes. Ah perhaps I’m just looking forward to winter.

Green Mid Week

A mid week break had me away from home and lost in the splendour of a habit natural, yet removed from our every day experience.

Medicinal how refreshing a pallet away from the greys and whites can be.

Artistic: Minimalist
Isolate your subject using the minimalist approach. Inspire someone with your art.

Subject really comes down to what in the minimalist settings. Line, Colour, Texture.

Not being minimalist I chose all three 🙁 Because I’m a gluten! And, I still really like James Gleeson

Landscape: Get High
Everything looks different when you are high. Find a high perspective to shoot this landscape.

To easy. I could have jumped on a bridge, climbed a building, got sh1t faced and made some made documentary whilst trying to find the american dream in the midst of a desert car race, but everyone’s been there.

What about that range of distance that gets overlooked. You know, the height just past a tall person but well under anything extraordinary. So a range we have within easy of reach, but hardly ever do. I.e the height of a chair. 😛

Art: Handmade
Your artistic interpretation should be inspired by another artisan’s handmade work. Literal or interpreted.

The best cup in the world. Who ever made this, designed it, chose the red stripes, thank you.

Landscape: Get Low
Time to look at the world from a different angle. Shoot a landscape from a low point of view.

I wanted to do this indoors, as weird as that sounds for a landscape. Anyway doing some research gave me a host of tropical green environments, usually malls and other spaces that interior decorators and real estate salespersons would drool over. Exhibit A through to B, Click

So naturally in rebuttal..
