I’m down at Victor Harbor for a couple of days having some photovoltaic solar panels placed on the roof of the weekender. As I had to hang around the house for the tradies I was only able to manage a walk along the cliff tops and beach early this afternoon with the dogs.

It is winter. Even though the rain had stopped, there was a bitterly cold wind blowing in from the south west and the sea was turbulent. Even so, there were lots of people walking their dogs, or strolling along the cliff tops, and even exploring the little beaches.

I wish that I had used the time to try to include people in the landscape, but my mind was on the tradies and solar panels not photography. The solar panel job would not be finished today. It’s a big job. So habit took over.

The poodlewalk was down at Port Adelaide this afternoon. I had a go at the two marine cranes that have been saved; but you can find two far superior interpretations here and here. Local knowledge derived from living in the locality always wins doesn’t it.

I realize that I don’t really know Port Adelaide, even though I ‘m doing a project on it. I’m basically a fly in. I drive down every couple of weeks or so for a few hours on a Sunday afternoon and take some photos. But I’m not really intimate with it’s character.
