Click Go The Shears - TTV Diptych by Kitsmumma

Click Go The Shears - TTV Diptych by 

Yesterday I visited and was fortunate to be able to photograph the shearing at Deeargee Woolshed on the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia.

It was such a thrill to witness the buzz and activity of the woolshed. The shearers and rouseabouts work so hard, the pace never stops……….. 5 shearers, 9,000 sheep, 8 days.

A huge thank you to the shearers, rouseabouts, classers and especially to the Sutherlands for the wonderful opportunity, it truly was an eye-opening and fantastic experience.

Photographed through the viewfinder of my vintage Argoflex Seventy-five – taken 18/8/2010

Australian Fine Art Photographer, Dip of Fine Arts (Photography), whose work is inspired by a love of nature and the abstract.
My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.
I hope to surprise and intrigue the viewer with my work and explore the notion that beauty exists everywhere…in the right light!

Thank you for visiting my gallery.

    Great image and atmosphere. I can almost smell it…

  • The atmosphere was, well.. electric!! and the smell of lanolin quite pleasant, bet they have soft hands.

    A great opportunity and a wonderful documentary style series of images Sylvia. Great stuff.

  • Hi Andrew, it was a great opportunity and I did want this to be a kind of doco style series so I thank you for your comment. I’ve got 2 ‘styles’ of the series, the TTV and ‘normal’. The Argus ended up full of hair/wool but I think it adds a bit of character……. although it will probably have to have a bit of a clean.
