Made whilst on an afternoon poodle walk over the long week end:
It was low tide so I was able to venture further out onto the reef.
From an open air studio:
The seaweed pods were casually arranged on granite rocks whilst I was on an early morning poodle walk
A still life that I made early one morning whilst on a poodle walk with Ari and Kayla:
I spend a bit of time playing around with draping the seaweed over the the quartz and then photographing it.
The hot dry weather has meant that the salt ponds scattered along the coastline of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula have returned. They are very ephemeral. Here today, gone tomorrow is their mode of existence.
They are also difficult to photograph. It is very opportunistic.
This fish skeleton was washed lying on the beach next to the Encounter Bay boat ramp, during the height of the recreational fishing in the summer holiday season in the early new year.
This happens each year.
I have been wondering what to do with the body of Littoral Zone images that I am continually photographing with a digital camera whilst I am on my morning and evening poodle walks.
I have pretty much given up the idea of scoping and then going back to reshoot them with my film cameras , which is what I used to. There is just too many digital images now. As a result the digital images keep on building up in the iMac's hard drive.
I don't have a project with this body of work. Just a lot of images that I am unsure what to do with.

Made whilst on a recent poodlewalk
After spending 12 days on the road to and from Lajamanu in the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory I walked along Dep's Beach on the morning after my return to Victor Harbor. This is in the early morning light:
I was seeing differently. I would normally walk past these rocks in the sand
This picture was made on the morning before the return of the wild, stormy weather:
I had walked past this spot many times on our poodlewalks but I'd never really stopped to photograph it. This time I stopped.
