Water Under The Bridge

The Curdnatta Photographers Group is still going strong. This month the theme is Architecture and Structures. This was taken under the Port Augusta Bridge early in the morning when the tide was low enough to stand right under it. The wind was just picking up providing soft movement in the water. I love the play of the shapes and the reflections.

Rain Rain Rain

This has definitely been the wettest March that I can remember in Port Augusta. Widespread tropical cloud moving down from the north brought rain all day long. I am starting to feel a little like the child in a bubble we saw at the Garden of Unearthly Delights during the FRINGE.

WOMADelaide and FRINGE 2011

While John was performing in Nosferatu I had the opportunity to engage with several FRINGE performances and activities including "Oleander" at the Higher Ground ARTS complex, a range of Art Exhibitions including Tracey Moffatt's photography exhibition at the Arth Gallery of South Australia and a romp through the Garden of Unearthly Delights.

On Sunday we both attended WOMAD and thank goodness the weather was mild and overcast unlike the 43 degrees of a few years ago that everyone seems to remember. Good food and a wonderful relaxed atmosphere accompanied the great musical acts. The highlight for me was the Leigh Warren Dancers in 'Breathe.

On Friday and Saturday John and members of his band along with the local choir Desert Voices and some Adelaide musicians performed at the Adelaide Fringe in "Nosferatu". The original performance was held in Port Augusta at the Desert Fringe last year.

The score was arranged by Mathew Timmis who spent some time teaching in the town but is now based back in Adelaide. A discordant and unnusual piece it complimented the old black and white horror movie well and surprised many in the audience.

Birthday Party

Latest commission was a 3 year old Birthday Party!
What a great experience; no preparation just the fun of taking photos of some great little people who were not shy of the camera.
The perfect opportunity to practice some portrait shots although I had to be quick and there was no opportunity for a staged lighting set up.
