Store Shed At Day Break

Glenorchy

These are the latest three additions to my fine art collection that I’ve just updated. They’re all images that took a long time to come together. I find that images like these and the feeling and meaning that’s held within them never happen quickly. They tend to take a long time to evolve, sometimes with the location being visited numerous times before the image appears as I want it too.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

Abandoned House

Hooper’s Inlet

It’s a shame that this place no longer stands. It collapsed several years ago after a storm blew through and over the peninsula. At the time it was standing it was in the middle of a sheep paddock that had obviously been used by the local animal population for some time. Despite this, it still had this wonderfully personal family feeling about.

The Eastern Peaks

Glenorchy

In the chill of the still morning air, just as the sun comes up there’s a moment when even the most rugged of features can take on a majestic feeling. It’s in that half light when objects can seem real yet unreal at the same time and your mind can spend the rest of the day trying to workout if that moment really happened.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment.

Boat Shed In The Bush

Stewart Island

I love the lack of focus points or distractions in this image yet the bush provides plenty for the eye to take in. My main emotion for this image was drawn to this boat shed and the more I looked at it, the more questions I found I had. When I was setting the camera up, I purposely framed the image to only include elements that would enhance the feelings and questions I had that the scene created. t’s one of those photos that the more I look at it, the more personal it becomes.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

St Bathans Township (in Black n White)

St Bathans

The small town of St Bathans was established in 1863 as the Central Otago gold rush stretched in land and was once home to over 2000 people. Found at the foot of the Hawkdun and Dunstan Ranges it’s an amazing place to explore. This is my interpretation of the main street.

First Light on Tautuku Beach

Tautuku Bay

Sunrises are an exercise in time and patients. You have have a lot of time to think, study and observe the world while waiting for the sun to come up. There’s a lot of human qualities in the passing of that moment that present themselves in these quiet morning scenes.

Mist In The Trees

Seacliff

I think that mist has this wonderful quality of time and curiosity about it. It always amazes me how mist or fog can make a moment stand still or create an element of curiosity to find out what lays beyond or through on the other side. Most of all, I love the way mist makes think and ponder of places, time and human interactions.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

Kapiti Island at Dusk

Paraparaumu

Here’s another beach at dusk (twilight) photo but from a completely different coastline. This is the West Coast of the North Island rather than the East Coast of the South. I took this on a very warm April evening in 2011 on Paraparaumu Beach. There were heaps of people out enjoying the evening so I hand to position myself close to the water’s edge otherwise I would’ve had lots of people walking in front of the camera as the beach stretches on for miles and is a great place for long walks or runs when the tide is low and the weather is clear.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

Seagull and Beach at Dusk

St Kilda

The local beaches here in Dunedin really do seem to get the best and worst of the weather systems that hit the New Zealand coastline. On a fine, clear, warm evening there can be no better place to be as the sun drops from view and the twilight hours take hold. However, when I southernly storm front travels up the coastline bring wind, snow, hail, freezing temperatures and massive swells it’s the last place you’d want to be. This was one of those evenings when time seemed to stand still until the occasional cry from a circling seagull seemed to suggest that it was time to move on.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

Western Marine Reserve

Kapiti Island

When we were over on Kapiti Island we spent a whole day exploring all the walking tracks on the northern end of the Island and being followed by all the Kaka. While we were their we trekked up the  5 km Okupe Valley track to the lookout above the western cliffs which has a 198 metre drop down to the Western Marine Reserve. The Kapiti Marine Reserve is actually a nationally significant ecological and scientific resource as it contains some of the finest underwater scenery in the greater Wellington region.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.
