This past weekend we had a chance to go see the Annie Leibovitz exhibit in Sydney at the Museum of Contemporary Art. This photography exhibit has been touring around the world and shows work created between 1990 and 2005. The exhibit consisted of both project work and personal photographs that showed the photographer’s family life. It was interesting to see the varied range of work from small candid shots of family to wall sized landscape photographs in black and white. It took us about two hours to work our way through the entire exhibit, admittedly I did take a long time looking at several...
David duChemin, the author of several popular books including Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision and many more great books. He has recently posted two great blog entries that resonate highly with not only me, but many other people as well. Here is a link to his original post :
Life Is Short
and his great follow up which asks the reader to contribute to the post here:
Life Is (too) Short – An Invitation
I encourage everyone to read both posts and to comments.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Those of you from Sydney have probably heard of Sculpture by the Sea, an art exhibition that takes place on the beautiful walk between Bondi Beach and Tamarama Beach in Sydney's eastern suburbs. Those of you that don't know about this outdoor exhibit can find out more about it at their website http://sculpturebythesea.com/. It is an interesting walk that has grown to be very popular among Sydneysiders. We went recently and there were so many people that it took us almost four hours to see the 109 sculptures and walk the roughly 1 kilometre distance.

We arrived at just before midnight and I noticed that the fog was hanging over the paddocks and combined with the full moon for a very eerie feel. I wanted to capture that feel and strange light in this photograph.
