New photographs

These new photographs are part of my ongoing journey and investigation into how I see the world.

I am at the beginning of that path, always learning about the world around me, and how my particular vision affects how I record  and feel the world through the images that I take. How shooting into the sun (contre jour), at night, or in glare is totally different for me as a vision impaired person.

What is it that makes my photographs special, uniquely my own?

This is the critical question moving forward.

It is such a privilege going out with a photographer such as Dr Marcus Bunyan, an education on how to place the camera, how to frame the world. New suggestions by him are to link an iPad directly to the camera in the field, so that I can open the images immediately to review them, instead of waiting to get back home and download them to my computer.

This is an exciting concept, one which I will investigate. I will need an attachment to mount the iPad (with hood to stop the glare of sunlight) on the tripod. It will enable me to review images in real time instead of not being able to see the image details until I am home. Stay tuned.

Still awaiting news of my Australia Council grant application. Keeps your fingers crossed!

June 2015: Launch of new website

Dear friends

It is with great happiness and delight that I launch my new website.

With a fresh look and feel, I hope that the photographs I take of the world around me will delight you even more in this new format. The images are displayed at a larger size and look really splendid in the page layout.

Many thanks to my friend Marcus Bunyan for making me this excellent website based on a WordPress theme. His generosity in making the site will further help promote my work, making my images even more professional and accessible. A big thank you indeed.

Enjoy!
