Our two standard silver poodles–Maleko and Kayla–are standing-guard whilst I am absorbed in photographing some abstractions amongst the granite rocks within the littoral zone. Some people were walking along the nearby clifftop path–the Heritage Trail— in the late afternoon.
It is school holidays in South Australia and people are everywhere along the coast. They are walking, photographing, fishing, playing and just hanging about on, and around, the local beaches. Hence the poodles standing-guard. This activity is usually in the late afternoon, as the early mornings around sunrise are quiet, with only the locals out walking.
The early mornings after the recent storm that broke the heatwave are much cooler now. The coastal winds have becoming quite chilly and I now wear long pants and a light jacket. The days are pleasant .
The archive of this littoral zone project keeps on increasing from all the daily photos that are made on the poodlewalks. I am starting to wonder what I am going to with them over and above producing the Fleurieuscapes book. The book is little more than an idea at this stage.
I really should have submitted some images for the Fleurieu Biennale as it now includes all visual media. I wasn’t on the mailing list and I didn’t realise that the call for submissions had been made, and that the closing date for submissions was the end of March.
I’ve been too busy with the Mallee Routes exhibition at Swan Hill, the Photoforum Members exhibition in Auckland, and then getting the Melbourne documentary exhibition with Stuart Murdoch off the ground for SALA.
I only found out about the Fleurieu Biennale in nearly April. So where to now?
