Recent Offerings #3

 3rd January 2011

I guess I should really set the record straight on these “recent offerings” claims.

The Nowhere Man wanders aimlessly atop the crumbling bitumen streets. He takes just the occasional, often curious photograph – and for what reason he forces down when he does, that little silver button, is a mystery resigned totally to the fulsome inbox of www.Theo.com – the Greek e-God of all stuff unexplainable
(...and also a great place to buy affordable on-line fruit & veg).

The process is a slow and cumbersome morass of repetitive catchupism (word invented – patent pending).
Please let me expand…
Once home from my day’s sidewalk shuffle I toss any resultant exposed film into the specially tailored lead lined draw I picked up for a song back in the mid nineties at one of Pete Garrett’s garage sale’s over on Wedding Cake Island (I’d really hate to lose work to nuclear fallout or something…). Anyway, inside the sheltered draw are a queue of grey canisters awaiting succor like a short n cylindrical gaggle of expectant pensioners, hunched, mouths agape, awaiting the lime flavoured wobble of jelly and ice cream at the Gwen Plumb Memorial Nursing Home’s traditional Sunday lunchtime buffet.  Eager little soldiers of tightly coiled TRI-X for whom one by one, an introduction to twenty degree dev’ awaits.

… many many months later I scan the neg’s – a back log approaching 12 months flashes gaily upon the Nowhere Man scoreboard at my most recent glance.

So when I open boldly with the heading “recent offerings” – please factor in the lag.
These pictures are new – however the subjects of the photo’s have well and truly moved on …(no, I don’t mean they’re dead – I just mean they’re not standing where they were when the photo that features them was actually taken – which of course is bleeding obvious but is used here as a gross exaggeration for some sort of effect – something I’m told I do quite often).
 
So here’s a further 8 “recent offerings”, from which I’m trying to work out whether any are OK …  and that’ll take another 6- 12 months to determine !

The Pitt St mall shot is a cracker.

Thanks James - yeah the good ole Pitt Mall is somewhere under and around all those people.
Think my preference is for the trampoline shot but hey, early days.

The expression on the girl's faces is brilliant. I have to ask, what the hell were they looking at?

Andrew Stark said...

You know Phil, the old memory aint what it used to be - and it was only shot about 12 months back too! Best I can summise - they were reacting to my gnarled left knee.

Great post! Makes me feel stupid with my own digital-driven routine...

I like the trampoline shot too, but that is just me. Which shot, what is the Pitt St Mall for us non-Aussie ?

cheers,

Sorry Jophillippe - it's the 6th one down.

Mate; maybe you should cover that knee up! That girl looks distressed...
