I have seen some fantastic images of the old derelict jetty at Clifton Springs and thought that I’d love to shoot it.
But the images Ive seen have done this incredibly picturesque feature as well as it can be done, and I don’t have anything to add to these as straight landscapes, so thought I’d use the jetty as a setting for a series I want to do featuring my old comfy-ugly-art-dec-ten-buck-op-shop-lounge-chair.
Myself and my beautiful wife drove over to Clifton Springs, and she was surprised when I, carrying the chair, just kept walking into the water and dumped it in the ocean, but it made a great setting for some shots of the chair, some self portraits, and portraits of Kristel. Keep an eye out for the ongoing journeys of my chair in 2011!
Canon 7D, Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 at 11mm.
