Continuing my atypical trend of people photography, now complicated by movement! This was taken at Studio One on Wickham Street during dress rehearsal for the Autumn Showcase.
The rest of the shots from that evening are lurking on facebook

UQ contrast

It has been quite some time since I posted, so I thought that I better make a contribution. The last film shots I have taken have been on work trips to Canberra and Melbourne, nothing suitable for posting here!

My youngest continues to run on Sunday afternoons at The University of Queensland (UQ), and I thought that it would be good to take a camera (Canon 450D) today in the hope of getting some inspiration. As I wandered, chatting to my wife with the dog in tow (well, actually leading the way) it struck me that one of the reasons the campus is so alluring is the mix of traditional and modern architecture.

It is almost like the buildings are giving a nod to the knowledge of the past, with their solidity and tradition, while urging the students to energetically embrace what is to come. This seems to create a wonderful tension that helps me see and feel differently on every visit.
