And the boys be dapper

beer and tea cups
croquet and canes
fishnets and rubgy
off kilter again

Incident on Drab Street

On set for Elizabeth Keyishian Wilks' new film Incident on Drab Street.
Great to have the power tools back in the hand again. We constructed this set over a couple of days with thanks to the Gates of Hell!

Avoidance, Beer and Cigarettes: The spaces in between.

I think I need
those spaces in between.
When the cleaning gets done,
or I walk and walk.
I can punctuate with cigarettes
and muse over ale.
Waiting for the welling
of something to happen.
An avoidance of what must be done
allows it to emerge in the end.

amazing race

ode to the amazing race...if I had a million dollars we would have sent them around the world.
We organised a race around melbourne for a friend's birthday.
brain teasers, cemetry puzzles, market shuffles, reading rooms and cars.
A photo finish over beer, running on hot legs from the giant ferris wheel ride.
whoa mamma they took the race on!

shiny boots of leather

My favourite boots.
They help me play.

new eyes

“The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes”
(Marcel Proust)

one can but try...
so when I get that itch, continually, to just bail and let something new re-energize me...
which I have done so often, the aim is to create my own interest in what is already here.

Don't get me wrong, I will not stop travelling throughout my life (I hope) - for inspiration and perspective and knowledge.


curiosity killed the cat eh

food play

what began as a small birthday project became quite the publishing ordeal
...all for the love of food
...and our mashy friend
A collated recipie book of friends and family. Food - where we all play relaxed like and please the senses.
I did most of the photography and tricia brady did the graphic design (she's tops).

the chair

and so he be relaxin on the grass, taking in the afternoon. a chair left empty.
those snapshots you notice...
don't they make the day just a little more gold

opening lines

The work-a-day of yesteryear was gone. Born was self imposed poverty, a life of simple luxury. The adage read: work less, play harder...

The life of the artist, huh...

Here's a nice quote I read the other day:
"Poverty is a relatively mild disease for even a very flimsy American soul, but uselessness will kill strong and weak souls alike, and kill every time."

Kurt Vonnegut 'God Bless You, Mr Rosewater'

smell here

what scents do ya think lie there within?
a: pure pheromones
b: wet mud
c: blueberrie muffins
d: old paper
e: all of the above, combined

And they be laughin'

and so the boys play...
there's something light about being on a boat. I've fallen for the endless horizon's, the air, light and double blue smacking you constantly in the face
