"A good photograph is knowing where to stand" Ansell Adams.

yesterday

Yesterday I met up with the lovely Justine to visit the art gallery. We went to see an exhibition called 'the Photograph and Australia'.  It looked at how photography connects people, place, culture and time. In the brochure it says that this exhibition is a 'treasure trove of stories reflecting on our nation's evolution from varied perspectives'. It was interesting. We were quite fascinated with photos from the late 1850's and early 1900's.  There was a lot to see, we didn't love it all but it did get us talking about what makes a good photograph. (I even bought a book called 'When Photography Works")

After wandering in the gallery and having some lunch we walked in the Botanical which is right next door. It was a beautiful (and  cold) autumn day.

  4. That one with all the colored panels is interesting. I can't tell if I'm looking up at a ceiling or down from the top of a wall. And I love that statue/fountain!
