    Thanks Marie. I like your new avatar pic. Oh by the way, ‘ginger’ is a colour often used to refer to a cat or a red haired person ;)

    Seems like you’ve done it again, captured a story. The composition of this is great, the fact that there is so much empty space mirrors the emptiness the subejct is feeling. I can relate! Well done.

    Very nice, Robert. You’ve captured the feeling/mood/emotion wonderfully. My other half works about 4 hours drive away on the west coast of Tassie, so I only see him on weekends, so I know the feeling well!

    Thanks heaps folk. This was a picture taken, but not exhibited, for an Adelaide group exhibition last year titled ‘Living Queer in Adelaide’ for the Feast Arts and Cultural Festival. I titled that series ‘When He’s Away’. A couple of the shots I exhibited are also here. Cheers ,)
