near Basham's Beach

This picture was made whilst I was on an afternoon poodle walk around the granite outcrop between  Basham's Beach and  Port Elliot on the southern Fleurieu Peninsula with Ari and Maleko. I'd been to see the director of the South Coast Regional Art Gallery at Goolwa about the Mallee Routes project and I  decided to walk around the granite outcrop.  

 I'm toying with using this some of the images on this blog as the basis for small artist's book. A little side project. A modest project. 

rock abstract #7

Another picture from the 5x7 Cambo monorail shoot near Kings Beach, Victor Harbor.  

It is a large format version of the 6x6 one in this earlier post. I was thinking more in terms of abstractions and modernism  than just rock studies and snap shots.  I was starting to reconnect with the art history past. A retro Australian modernism as it  were, which referred back  to the rock studies made by John Cato in the 1970s. 

Cato's abstractions developed the vocabulary of his own inner landscape and can be seen as expressions of his subconscious. I have no interest in this kind of transcendent photography that links back to Kandinsky.
