Celebrating Revela-T

Arriving in Barcelona for Revela-T 2017, I had little idea of what to expect. It is an incredibly long 28 hours by plane from Australia. The day after landing we headed out to Vilassar de Dalt early in the morning to hang the photos I was exhibiting at the Cal Garbat. Of course we got…

So you think you can dance!

Some days are strange. It is though nature is revealing its auspices and one must be nimble to catch the signs. I often travel with several cameras, and though I can set up my 4×5 fairly quickly, I will also have either a medium format or 35mm camera ready. This means I sometimes take multiple…

Week #37 Ireland part 3

We ended our trip through Ireland with a short stay with our friends in Dublin. They showed us a little bit of the city (Temple Bar, the Botanic Gardens and Glasnevin Cemetery and Howth). We also went to Trim and Bective Abbey, which were absolutely lovely locations. Ireland was so much fun and so beautiful…

Week #36 Ireland part 2

Week 36 saw us still touring through Ireland. We had made our way to the southcoast, and visited Charles Fort, several beach towns and the Ring of Kerry. Something odd happened at Charles Fort: first the back of my pinhole camera fell off mid-roll, and then my Olympus OM-2 suddenly stopped working. Since then my…

Week #35 Ireland part 1

We went on holiday to Ireland in week 35. Normally my husband and I go on city trips, but this time we wanted to do things differently. We had only booked a plane ticket, and we had arranged with friends in Dublin we’d crash at their place the first night. They offered us their car…

Spring colour

Spring might be one of my favourite times for photography. The bursts of flowers give life to windswept and desolate bushland. Often I will return to places visited only a week before to look for more flowers I may have missed, or that are coming into bloom. Some days I might shoot a roll walking…

Scenes from the horse paddock

Late afternoon the horses like to have a feed in the top paddock on the young green pick and clover. Meanwhile their home paddock gets a tidy, manure is collected, empty feeders are filled with hay, and the trough is filled with water. On the wall of their shed hang toys, and out the back,…

Barren Grounds wildflowers with Poppy’s Olympus OM-2

This morning I visited Barren Grounds Nature Reserve to finish off a roll of Ultrafine Xtreme 100, that I had started yesterday, in my recently gifted Olympus OM-2. It is a most wonderful present from my father-in-law who is in his 90’s. The Olympus OM-2 had been his treasured SLR that he had bought in…

Week #22 – The wedding

A few months ago my husband and I went out for dinner with friends of ours. During dinner, the two announced their wedding plans. We congratulated them, and told them we were very happy for them. And then came the question: “Inge, we would love you to do our wedding pictures. What do you think?”.…

Week #20 Delft

In week 20 my husband and I went to Delft. It’s an old city close to Rotterdam, and it’s famous for being the home town of many Dutch painters such as Johannes Vermeer and Jan Steen. It’s also the burial place of members of our royal family, the House of Orange. I took my Holga…
