In Kat Sloma's course, a sense of place, we are looking at defining place.
What are the aspects that distinguish one place from another?
I've noticed that in my own photography some of the things that I include are water, buildings & their details & bridges.
This morning I went to the river which isn't far from where I live..
There's a wharf & I had expected it would be busy with business people getting ready to catch a rivercat to work, but there weren't many people around at all.
I ended up being distracted by these birds that were sitting on an unused wharf. So I took a few shots. I tried to include some context in the photo.
I also took some close up shots.
Then I turned the camera on the building near to where they were perched.
One of the birds had had enough by then and decided to fly away!
As I walked further along the river I noticed this group of shells. It looked like someone, most likely a child, had been collection shells and had been asked to leave them.
Photographed close up & with some context.
Some artwork that also gives a sense of place..
mosaics around the base of some tall sculptures.
And in the end I did manage to find some people who were heading to catch a rivercat into the city.
I enjoyed my morning on the river.
