A few favourites from my recent trip to India. It’s taking forever to sort though my collection from the Rajasthan 2013 Photo Trek with Matt Brandon (www.thedigitaltrekker.com) and Piet van den Eynde (morethanwords.be). I’m still too close to the experience to trust my judgement about the photos; the collection is bound to shift and shrink a bit before I am ready to finalise an India 2013 gallery. Meanwhile, here are some current favourites from our two days in Delhi.
And, yes, it was a wonderful trip. I photographed until I dropped, learned so much my brain is still spinning, and enjoyed delicious food and much laughter in good company along the way. What could be better?
Close to Home 1-16 by Andrée Lawrey
Another long break… I’m shocked at the way this year has got away from me. A couple of project commitments, too much administrative busyness, too little space for personal work plus the usual gaps, roadblocks and creative droughts — I need to do better in future!
The high points were pretty good, though. For example, the exhibition I helped to organise — Close to Home, by members of the Australian Photographic Society’s Contemporary Division — looked really good in both venues. Yes, we hung it twice, first at ‘The Q’ Exhibition Space at the Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre, then again at APSCON 2012, the Society’s 50th annual conference. Organising an exhibition by 20 artists from all around Australia by email was an interesting challenge for the Canberra team, but the end result was very fine. Congratulations to all concerned — you should be proud!
Then there was the new website. Yes, this is it — welcome! A completely new look, bringing my blog, articles and photography galleries together on a single site, something I have wanted to do for ages. As always, comments and suggestions are most welcome. If anything looks odd or it’s hard to find your way around the site, I’d love to hear about it.
Pure self-indulgence. I love that gentle green, the soft-looking texture of the leaves, those interlocking curves…
