Artists Against Racism

Text attached to my photo The Bridge explains in rough verse how I stumbled upon red bubble. I’ve been lurking for a couple of months now and decided I’d like to get involved. If you’re a member of red bubble you’ll know how easy it is to get sucked into the vortex. I’d look at one of Naomi’s images then read the comments and if the comment was interesting I’d check out the site of the commentator which in turn led me to …. etc.. .. .. . I seemed to keep coming back to particular people, sometimes for the images sometimes for the banter and sometimes for the controversy and usually for a combination of these. I had no intention of placing my photographs on the web until I found this community. I don’t have any prejudices regarding what makes a good image, if I like it visually or if it provokes thoughts or emotions then it’s good.
I’m happy to receive comments and constructive criticism.

(I vaguely remember finding it previously and asking her about it, before her memory was ravaged by Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia) / These days it’s hard to get any sense out of her at all, and a…

Another Fabulous RB catch up

On Sunday (14th of October 2012) we had another fabulous RB dawn shoot and catch up, this time at South Head. Maria organised the event, and a fine job she did too. / We even arrived on site before the sun poked its face over the horizon to reveal that she had us standing precariously at the top of a cliff overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Plenty of people turned out at stupid o’cloc…
