blue day... river of dreams river of tears by 


another infrared image from the vaults that has been gently coloured to give it the emotional tone it needs. I shot this image and the ones that follow in the days after my father died. They were all taken while I wandered along the river Torrens in Adelaide near where he lived. This particular stretch of the river is particularly beautiful and was a place he loved to go walking with his cameras. So then this image is about memory and loss and also about redemption through beauty.

    Beautiful soft colour tones and texture, it really does look like a beautiful, peaceful place to take a stroll.

  • thanks Jennifer… yes it’s like it’s just begging you to lie down in the soft dense vegetation and dream a while…. like Alice in Underland…. being able to walk along here was what kept me sane at the time and now it’s kind of how I remember those couple of days of really intensity…. all soft and blue

    It speaks of all those things juilee – beautiful

  • thanks Helene…. sometimes in memory it’s the colours and smells and things like that that serve as triggers later on down the track…. it’s over four years ago and only now can I find the distance I need to work through the photo’s I took at the time

    What a gorgeous tribute!

  • thanks darlin…. I found this pack of negs almost hidden the other day and have been scanning them…. and it’s like he is here with me while I do it…. looking over my shoulder talking softly about lighting and lenses and suchlike…. a gentle shot for a gentle man

    :)

  • thanks dinghy… funny thing about memory is that you just never know quite know when it’s going to strike or what will set it off…. but this little group of images is all about him…. bittersweet but still beautiful in their own way
