untitled #89


Some of you may have been wondering where I've been lately and why I've been so quiet.

Some of you might not have noticed because you have far better things to do than wonder why I haven't posted for a while.

Others may not have been wondering because they'd been reading my previous posts devotedly and knew that I was moving house.

Okay, so moving house (especially just from the east to the west of the same suburb) shouldn't cause such a long internet absence, but due to unforeseen technical difficulties with the telephone line in my new home, it did. Even now I'm posting this via painfully slow dial-up. But my ADSL2+ should be in place on Monday!

Before said difficulties became apparent I was also spending much time making my new bedroom and study look pretty. Some before and after action below (warning: photos have absolutely no artistic merit):

i'm forever blowing bubbles...


...or rather, Karen was. I think she might have hyperventilated a bit after blowing bubbles for me semi-continuously whilst I tried to capture an image suitable to composite into another photo for the series I'm creating for my Canon Photo5 competition entry.

The two of us and Greg enjoyed the strange looks of folk assembled for a wedding nearby whilst we took photos in the Botanical Gardens on Sunday. Bubble-blowing was the least absurd behaviour we were partaking in, I assure you.

However, you'll have to wait until the series is completed before you get to see the photos or hear any more about our mischief.

In the meantime, you can see four of my images in issue #31 of F-Stop Magazine (on the right-hand side of the third row), and you can vote for my entry into the current round of the Saatchi Showdown competition.

river's edge


In three weeks I will be giving up my life of solitude. My life within these walls alone.

For the first time after four years and one month I will have a housemate. I will be moving. This will officially be the third longest period I've lived in one premises in my life. And only a few months short of my longest relationship to date.

Anyone who knows me knows I don't take sharing a home lightly. I love living alone. The freedom to do what I want, whenever I want, in as little clothing as I want (and that the weather will allow) without observation, interruption or judgment from anyone else (except maybe my neighbours if they happen to be nosy and looking through my not-so-concealing fence without my knowledge).

So I've been cherishing my backyard with its long, overgrown grass which retains a me-shaped outline after I lie in it. The me-shape still remaining from my shoot with Formalde two weekends ago. And the itch of the grass against my back and legs as I lay naked on it at two and a half minutes to midnight on a Friday night. The grass wet from the afternoon's heavy rain, the light from the streetlamp illuminating me as the chill night air drifts across my skin.

Within the next week I'll pay a gardener to cut the grass back and the me-shape will disappear or at least become less obvious. In a month there'll be scarcely a speck of evidence of my having lived here.

And despite my usual reluctance to share my personal space with others on a full time basis I'm actually looking forward to taking up residence with Karen and her slobbering Rottweiler, Vulpe. I'm looking forward to painting my new bedroom and study, taking photographs in a new place (though I've photographed Karen there before), making my new unconventional bedroom my home and setting up a makeshift studio.

This Eastender is moving Westside.
