This is one of the buildings that comprise what remains of the Larundel mental asylum in Melbourne. Living in Tasmania, I have only been there once and will unlikely be able to visit again as the buildings are soon to be demolished to make way for a housing development. Follow this link for more information about this asylum:;;;;;

I was inspired to try a lens zoom for this photograph by the work of Steph Hall. I found her work on Red Bubble and as I liked it so much, I too went to the Larundel Asylum to do some photography. She was very helpul with directions and advice and this to me was a perfect example of how lovely the RB community is!

The exact photograph of hers that inspired this one can be seen here:

Camera: Canon EOS: 60D
Lens: Canon EF 10-22mm

Exposure time: 1 second
F-stop: 22
Focal length: 10-22mm

Post-processing:Adobe photoshop CS3

Photography is my ‘passion’. I studied it in years 11 and 12, where I learned how to processes films in the dark room. Since then, my photography was restricted to digital compacts until I was able to afford an DSLR in 2010.

Until recently I had been doing a PhD in Agricultural Science at the University of Tasmania. I have recently decided that a career in science is not going to make me happy, so I am now studying graphic design.
