I have finally started adding some images to the skeleton galleries of this low -fi website–eg., it is the portrait and the road trip galleries that I have been working on. The additions are adding some flesh to the skeleton, as it were.
In going back through my 2018 digital archives on the hard drive of the 2017 iMac I came across the images that I had made whilst on my brief holiday at American River on Kangaroo Island in South Australia.
The images that caught my eye were the ones I made on an early morning autumn walk along the shoreline of the estuary on my last day of the brief holiday. I had never done this on previous visits, as I had though that this part of the estuary at American River was more or less inaccessible.
I wish that I could have stayed at American River longer so that I could return to photograph along this littoral zone with my Linhof 5×4 camera in the early morning light.
The colours in the soft early morning autumn light were stunning. But the ferry to Cape Jervis on the mainland had been booked, and so I had to move on after cleaning up the holiday house.
However, I did have some time to quickly explore the Boudin Conservation Park, east of Penneshaw before I needed to catch the Sealink ferry to Cape Jervis to return to Encounter Bay.
The large format photography was not to be on this very brief holiday with family. This form of slow photography would have to wait for another visit.
