Adelaide, September 2009 – a bit of self indulgence

I recently went back home to Adelaide for Father’s Day. For some reason I walked around town randomly snapping off shots with my digital camera. Shots of places I remember from when I used to live there, places that meant something to me and places/things that have changed since I moved away.

There’s also a few shots of pictures inside Dad’s house and even more strangely, shots of drag performers at ‘The Garage’ – a rather drab Sunday ‘Gay’ night in Adelaide.

None of this is meant to be arty or clever. Some of the shots are pretty crap. I’ve thrown this together using Windows Movie Maker as a piece of self indulgence. If Andrew is reading this: I thought of you when I was taking some of these pictures and, for a second worried, ‘oh Andrew would take these photographs much more professionally, I’m such a hack!’ Andrew is an amazing photographer. I’m just a total ‘point and shoot’ boy myself. And digital cameras allow you to take hundreds of shots and not worry about self-editing!

The songs in the background are ‘Still Amazed’ by Same Difference and ‘Make Your Own Kind of Music’ by Mama Cass.

  2. Bugger! I was in the U.S when you visited! Come back again soon, and let me know when you’re here 🙂

  3. There’s wisdom in this guy’s blog who argues it doesn’t matter about megapixels and framing etc… he says “the best camera is the one that’s with you” and that it’s all about capturing moments that mean something to you.

  4. My god, a Surrey Downs bus stop!

    When I first read the post, I thought you said drag queens performing in your dad’s garage. 🙂

    Does Max know he’s a YouTube star yet?
