Out and about...

So do you have that feeling on a Friday night - where you are relieved it's the weekend and you have so many possibilities ahead for how you might spend your time? The projects, the experimenting, the creating - all the things you've been waiting all week to do?

Then Saturday morning arrives - you do a few chores - but then you can't really decide exactly which thing it is you want to start first? just what is it you have the energy for?
Perhaps then it's good to have a transition? Go out for a bit... last Saturday i found myself visiting a small gathering entitled "Eurofest". Essentially it was celebrating European cultures in Australia, but then there was a medieval angle and the fun of the fair too... (click on images for larger view).
I was reminded of my senior high school years when i loved taking photos of people, so yes, you've seen my images of textures, scenes and various inanimate objects - here's a little photo essay with some folk in it! (the guy in the bottom row centre was doing a roaring trade teaching the kids how to make wooden swords).

Sunday i popped down the road to Manly, there is an arts festival on and I am really enjoying the 3pm artist talks. Sadly they don't permit photography - but the exhibition featured, was a collaboration between 2 printmakers who had used historical sites (The Quarantine Station + Cockatoo Island) as a source to create their own artist books, one of which had circular pages. Nice.

For those of you not from these parts - above, top left is the Manly Art Gallery, bottom right is the view outside. As part of the festival a few artists were working away outside.
