This is my place in time.
Hi, and welcome to my revamped website. Wait! Are you not reading this post on my actual website? Please click through to http://www.blackcurrantphotography.com.au
There you go! Pretty, isn’t it?
It used to look more like this (below), but I thought that it didn’t have enough information in the menu, and that the background was a little distracting… so I did my yearly prettying up and changed it.
Last week I had to pop over to Victoria Park to collect my new prescription sunglasses from Spectacles 2-4-1, and then wait for my sister who I’d promised a lift home from her job as a Barista. As it was one of the cooler days we’ve had so far this year, I thought it would be a good opportunity to knock off a few more photos for the My place in time project.
Unfortunately, none of the photos I took really met the prompts, though a couple came close to covering the prompts “If I had kids I’d take them here”, “Education”, and “How we communicate”.
As I spent about three quarters of an hour giggling and drooling over books in the independent bookstore, Crow Books, and chatting to the lovely lady who works there (I think her name is Lucy?) I have come to the conclusion that education might be the best bet. After all, I’ve relied heavily on books throughout my life and career and they have taught me so much. The photos have much more character than me simply photographing a school’s exterior as well.
I’ve also popped in a couple of pictures of The Balmoral pub, which was looking particularly photogenic in the afternoon light.
Enjoy! When you are finished looking, there are more bookshop photos here.
P.S. If anyone is wondering what to get me for my birthday in April, a gift voucher for Crow Books would be brilliant. There was a book called “Much Loved” that featured portraits of well worn stuffed toys. It melted my heart (for want of a less sappy expression).
#73 – Education
On the topic of books, I recently made an album of pictures from my first 6 months on Instagram. Isn’t it great?
