More Back Beach at Blairgowrie
Back home again and have to get the head down and create as much as I can for the next 16 days before I go to Egypt amidst kids home on school holidays and summer distractions!
I have posted some more photos of another walk we did along the back beach. There is a photo of moi with my eldest daughter Celeste and youngest daughter Ynez. On one of the list i belong to there was some commentary about not wanting to know about the details of peoples lives, the highs and the lows and Annabel Rainbow,commented
but to me you can't separate the two; if you're truly interested in finding out how someone arrived at a finished piece of work, and understanding the meanings they were trying to convey, then their state of mind is important because, surely, how they feel and who they are is expressed in that work?
I couldn't agree more- my life is so intertwined with what I create that sometimes it is difficult to separate the two. What i see ,what I experience what i feel all gets put into the melange of what i create. I also like to include my family in what i do because they are so much the reason that i do what i do and i also have family on the other side of the world who from time to time look at my blog.
I like the photos with the rocks in hollows- it reminds a little of the work of Andy Goldsworthy- except this one has been wrought by nature and also a little shrine like. Isn't she wonderful?
But best news last. Thank you all for the positive comments about the echidna photo- I have to tell you i was lying down in the sand to take it- I entered it in a summer holiday photos competition in one of the State's newspapers( the Heraldsun which i only read as it was at my in-laws)- on wednesday morning- by Wednesday lunch time I knew I had won a Sony Cybershot DSCW7 camera as the daily winner ( great for Egypt!) and when I got home yesterday afternoon the camera was waiting for me! How is that for instant gratification?And what a start to the year. Thank you Sony!
And Felicity- do you use Picasa to load your photos onto your blog? That is how I am creating the collages.
