Boomerangs Are Making A Big Comeback

David McMahon

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

Comeback, geddit??!!!!!
Well, yes, I should explain the significance of that title for non-Australian viewers. Boomerangs are ancient hunting implements, V-shaped pieces of timber that are designed to return to the hunter or the person who throws them.
These boomerangs were on display at the Rocks Market in Sydney. The stall was under a thick canvas awning, so the light was very mellow when I shot this last Easter (2010). Rather than shoot the three whole rows of boomerangs for sale, I was drawn instead to the artwork on their ends. Accordingly, I shot this tight vertical frame in the hope that it would be more intriguing than a traditional view.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/60 sec, ISO 800, focal length 98mm.
