Gallery of fine art photography.



I found myself today at the sharp end of a triangle. I have noticed the girl on the phone as I passed the construction zone at the Pitt Street Mall. She was half enclosed by the construction safety tunnel and her whole front was out of it exposed to the sun. It looked a bit like the old portraits where other then the person in focus everything turns into a black void.

I took the camera and started to focus on her, when I noticed the two men on the left. From their reaction I gathered they thought I was about to photograph them. I quickly re-framed the photograph to include them in the background. The resulting image looks like a collage of two separate photographs only joined by the invisible photographer as both the men and the girl look at me at the same time.

Under a bridge in Morpeth


The sign before the bridge in Morpeth says “Only one heavy vehicle at a time”. The old wooden construction provides a visible clue this sign should be obeyed. Now, if you actually go under the bridge and view its support structure you will be inclined even more to do so. It is very old, rusted and it does not seem to receive a lot of maintenance. Never the less it has a lot of character.
