My place in time – A little walk around Highgate.

On a drizzly May 10th, Jason and I took a little trip to the Highgate/Mt Lawley area to get our hands on the demonically good salted caramel doughnuts from Mary Street bakery. The bakery is always packed and noisy, so we decided to brave the weather and go for a walk instead, up Mary street and then around the block.

The area is hilly, and has good views out towards the city. I hope you enjoy the photos I took. Continue reading

My place in time – Roadwork (7th Avenue bridge).

Back in February, I was alerted to the news that the bridges were being removed. These photos span two dates, Februay 8th 2014, and May 28th, 2014. The bridges are due for destruction over the weekend 31st May.

Fare-thee-well bridges. Thank you for being so interesting! I passed under you many times on train trips throughout my childhood and early working life. I hope your beams are recycled, repurposed, and loved for many more years. Continue reading

My place in time – Somewhere I visited with my first love.

So perhaps I step away from the notion that my first love is another human being. My first love was and always will be art, and in particular, photography. I would be heartbroken if the ability to record photographs was ever taken from me. It’s something I do every single day and is a huge part of who I am. Continue reading

My place in time – What’s showing at the movies.

The Piccadilly was an art deco cinema in the heart of Perth’s CBD, the entrance at the Hay Street Mall end of Piccadilly arcade. The cinema was built in 1938 by an architect called William T Leighton, who (according to Wikipedia) also worked on well known Perth theatres The Cygnet, The Windsor, and several others now demolished or sitting unused (such as The Plaza). As you walked up the deco stairs to the cinema foyer there was a great wall of mirrors, and a mosaic ceiling made from little oblongs of mirrored glass. Continue reading

A peek at Pier street.

The “My place in time” project will be a year old next month and I’m still hard at work with it, though my focus has shifted slightly to recording the places, signs, and buildings that are important to me and which I fear may disappear in the not to distant future. It has actually become a nagging fear, and a compulsion to record these places. If not me, then who will? The fear stems from the lingering thought that I might be the only person that thinks to take a picture… and if I don’t, am I condemning that building/place/sign/memory/flower/moment in time to be lost forever?

Paper Days – portraits in the Australian Bush (revisited).

We visited a local reserve on a hot February afternoon, to take some portraits that could be used to sell as fine art pieces in my Etsy shop. My husband made the paper kite for us using scraps of rag, and some plastic balloon sticks.

I originally processed these in colour, and in vintage faded red (like deteriorated colour photo from the 1970s). I decided to revisit them today and process them in my preferred contrasty black and white. Continue reading

Welcome to my Autumn collection.

Hi there! It’s been a busy couple of months, so please forgive the short lapse in blogging. The last few weeks have seen me update my Etsy catalogue with some lovely new print-to-order photographs, and some classy new earrings to help you rock those “oh gosh it’s windy!” ponytails. All earrings and pendants are made … Continue reading
