Minimalism Genre

Minimalism is one of my favourite photographic genres. It is characterised by simplicity and lack of clutter amongst other things. It is considered to be a very subjective concept, leaving meaning up to the viewer's interpretation of the photography.

The first photograph, Red Door below, was the cover page of the December 2017 Free Expressions publication on Contemporary Photography of the Australian Photographic Society. The other photos are entitled Flying Alone, Green Chair and Solitary respectively.

2018 kick-off

Some images to capture the essence of summer 2018 in Melbourne

Summer in Melbourne

Although Melbourne tends to get hot, balmy weather we also tend to get storms and on the less severe side, lovely sunsets this time of the year. A few shown here were taken during late December, around Christmas. Happy 2018 to everyone!

PAX

What is PAX? PAX is a huge show, recently in Melbourne at the "Shed" in the CBD where people come dressed as - well, as many different things. Some examples are here to give you a flavour. Thank you Mario Mirabile for the suggestion.

Dandenong Show

It is fun to support your local show. There were many interesting photos in the Arts and Craft section. I was lucky enough to win Best Photo in Show.

Australian Photographic Society (APS) Four Nations competition

Each year APS selects a number of images to compete with New Zealand, South Africa and Canada. This is called the Four Nations competition 2017. This image will be representing Australia through APS in the 'Our Country" category in the 'Four Nations' competition 2017.

Some travel spots

New Zealand, Flinders Island and Switzerland - landscapes are always a favourite

Shadows

Moving away just for a moment from landscape and portraiture, 'Shadows' was a recent competition theme at the Camera Club

We love Portrait Photography as well as Landscapes!
