Photo Project - Erika Diettes (Fri 27 May 2016)

tree - South Cronulla (Sat 30 Apr 2016)

Erika Diettes on Photo Project:

have perseverance to complete the project, and always be open to new opportunities that may arise along the way. Often the most important and definitive elements of a work are those that we will find in the search for the initial idea. No great work is the result of a moment of inspiration. I would dare say that great works are the result of much study, research, technical mastery, discipline, obsession and - above all - are an exercise in resistance.

Photography - Drew Kelly (Thu 19 May 2016)

panorama - Wilpena / South Australia (Tue 12 Apr 2016)

Drew Kelly on Photography:

photography should allow you to transplant yourself to the moment it was taken
via Instagram of the Week: Candid, Vibrant Street Photos From Inside North Korea by Jenna Gattett.

This photo I made on my Phone as the sun set over Wilpena on the distant horizon near the lone tree

The panorama covers more than 180 degrees and I used the tree to hide the sun and my shadow is hidden in the shadow of the tree on the left. My Mum and Joanne are in there also.

Everything about this photo reminds me of this memorable moment so far from anywhere. A moment I will remember for a lifetime.

Uncertainty - Eric Kim (Wed 18 May 2016)

mural - Chippen Lane / Chippendale (Wed 18 May 2016)

Eric Kim on Uncertainty:

my favorite days are when I have no plan — that I take everything as it comes. Uncertainty, randomness, and chance is also what street photography is all about. Serendipity is about not knowing what is going to happen, or what lies around the corner.

Stance - Streetshooter (Wed 11 May 2016)

trees / rocks / shadows - Wilpena (Tue 12 Apr 2016)

Streetshooter on Stance:

I felt an energy come into me, not over me but into me. [..] What was born back then was not just me as a photographer but a photographer with a stance. I mean it gave birth to a realization of my own self worth. [..]

I don’t practice photography, I live it. I don’t just make photos, my photos define me as well. [..]

It requires a firm appreciation of the whole that we are and a total committed love of what we do and why we do it and how we do it.

Perception - Colin Pantall (Tue 10 May 2016)

trees / water / reflection - Wilpena (Tue 12 Apr 2016)

Colin Pantall on Perception:

To open the doors of perception we need to go beyond this world. Which is not easy because it is familiar to us and provides a foundation for us. But if you really want to step beyond this world, all you have to do is step – and you are out.

Luck - Mathew Hayman (Sun 10 Apr 2016)

Untitled - Port Augusta (Sun 10 Apr 2016)

Mathew Hayman on Luck:

I just played the game and got lucky
via Myth Busters: the Mathew Hayman Paris-Roubaix edition by SBS.

We were in Port Augusta overnight on our from Adelaide to Wilpena in the Flinders Ranges. Always try to watch Paris-Roubaix and it was great to see Mathew win on the final lap in velodrome. Saw Stuart O'Grady's win back in 2008 and so glad that I stayed up and watched him play the game and create his own special bit of luck.

Sadness - Maggie Barrett (Mon 02 May 2016)

Untitled - North Haven / Adelaide (Wed 06 Apr 2016)

Maggie Barrett on Sadness:

be aware of the seduction of sadness. [..] There is much to feel sad about during the course of life, and certainly one shouldn’t mask it, but neither should one wear sadness too long lest it become its own mask.
