Probably not the best translation but sign says something along the lines of

"Climate is like Ex(boyfriend) -  do not heat up!"

I have been visiting the extremely arid area of central Australia where early exploration took place. 

Amazingly, during his 1844-45 Central Australian Expedition to find an inland sea, Captain Charles Sturt dragged a whaling boat all the way from Adelaide. The outfit consisted of:

1 whaling boat and boat carriage, 11 horses, 30 bullocks, 1 horse dray, 1 spring cart, 3 drays, 200 sheep, 2 sheep dogs, 4 kangaroo dogs.

Exploring more Australian history.

A whim was a clever way to extract water from wells. It was drawn by horses and camels.

It took me some 8 years to get around to photographing this beautiful marble angel in a mausoleum

in my local cemetery.  I'd tried previously but there's only one small barred window with a 3 inch gap between the bars but my

newly acquired Sony A6000 had a small enough lens to shoot between the bars and get enough of a wide angle to show

it.

Hornsey town hall, by Reginald Uren, 1932, first modernist building in the UK

HMI light on a scissor lift rigged for a film shoot, which is why the windows are blacked out.

They rented my Steenbeck, so I made far more out of this gig than the images ever will.

I see this tree nearly every day... it sits in the grounds of my children's primary school. At the weekend, because I was attending a private function at the school, I got a chance to take a photo of it with my camera as opposed to a quick shot with a phone. Not the world's most amazing image but I like the shape and form of this tree and this image will bring back memories in years to come when my children are older and no longer go to primary school.

Rochefort trappist beer in Rochefort- the abbey is a mile and a half up the road. Or if you prefer something you can see through...

The White Cross at Richmond- the door up the steps is how you get in at high tide. Or use a boat.

What you are not seeing are my legs covered in bug bites. The price of hiking in paradise. 🐜🕷🐝

Fantastic shots, edge of the storm, into the light. 

The highlights on the fallen leaves on the roads and dark shadows overall, give a texture that one thinks one could feel, if one rubbed their hand against the image.

Highlights, shadows, and lighting really important, when you are converting a real 3D scene, to a flat 2D surface.

When Artificial intelligence becomes aware. The singularity. A rework of an old cyberpunk 3D illustration I did in the 1990's.
