Southbank, Victoria, Australia - 29rd June 2013

I didn’t used to worry so much about noisy photos, I was just so inthralled in shooting whatever I wanted. Fuck the rules! I was really going through that stage. Though I’m well aware must it is balancing on the on the edge of acceptability. I was visiting a friend in who was living in a new apartment in Melbourne’s Southbank. We used to stay up late, drink, talk, go out, whatever really, we’d usually end up back at his apartment just chilling on the balcony no matter how cold it was. This particular night was extra crispy, my friend went inside to get a cigarette and I started taking a few photographs on this eerie morning atmosphere. Not a sound to be heard on the street below, just the faint echo of my cameras shutter bouncing back off the building in frame.

The night before I captured this photo I could not sleep a wink. Nothing was really bothering me that much that I could easily pinpoint. I was just going through a bit of insomnia. This can be triggered by too much coffee too late in the afternoon. Except this time Instead of staying in the comfort of my home, I just wanted to get out and explore. Without anything planned for the day I set out early in the morning for some dawn landscape photography. At this stage I was just driving in a straight line north directly out from the city. Reading the weather was last on my mind because I knew it was going to be overcast anyway. These cracks in the sky you just can’t plan for. If I followed my usual corse of action I probably wouldn’t have captured this and proves that you should always just go.

Not a whole lot to say here. A bit of experimenting going on and in all honesty, It looks a little like I’m just passing some time with whatever I had at hand. I’ve have always spent a lot of my time self learning to expand my skills and knowledge. If my memory serves me correctly, I was doing a test on how hard I can push the contrast in camera before making any changes in post production. My subject isn’t overly unique, though anything in nature is easy enough to pluck from a garden. Shooting still life has always been a passion of mine, whatever the scale or size of the scene I make, this is just a simple exercise that I typically do on a rainy afternoon.
