artist walk - Manly Dam

The other morning the Autumn sky was grey and waiting to rain, anticipating a day inside, I ventured out for a brief walk - here's what i saw... and heard - video has bird sounds and a bit of chat.

This walk is a 2.5km round trip from my front door. What do you see 25minutes from your desk?

Thoughts on Autumn

Yesterday I attended a session by the School of Life in Sydney, the essence was: what can we learn from the seasons? With Autumn as the theme. Which lead to my response in words: "I see Autumn as freedom from summer's opressing heat, free to move we disperse, we can flutter and drift in the breeze. With crispness comes clarity. A comforting glow in the fallen leaves. As trees become empty, their true structures are revealed, their strengths and weaknesses exposed. I think not of decay, but transition."

What does a season study in your neck of the woods reveal? What have you observed?

More wanderings...

So I may have mentioned that i am planning a couple of online courses, which is an excellent excuse to keep looking for footage... although this of course also presents the problem of where do I find the time to edit and create with said footage? While I haven't quite solved that one, it did get me out and about... There is sound if you want to hear my slightly cold affected narration..

More info on Mount Annan Botanical Gardens, an hour south west of Sydney, can be found here
Sadly as the weekend drew to a close - it meant there was no time to interpret all the visual material I had collected.. which is why i had to pop into Adobe capture and at least generate a few patterns in the meantime!
