Spent the long weekend in Colorado, the place that got me into photography a decade ago, and fell even more in love with it than I was before.

Salt: Vanity by Murray Fredericks

Hamiltons presents Salt: Vanity, an exhibition of the most recent work by Australian photographer Murray Fredericks. The Vanity series is a continuation of Fredericks’ renowned Salt series, in this next cycle of the project, Fredericks introduces a mirror into the previously undisturbed landscape. Australian photographer Murray Fredericks’ long relationship with Lake Eyre, where his most recent series Vanity has been produced, commenced in 2003, and to date consists of twenty journeys to the centre of the lake where he photographs for weeks at a time in the vast and infinite landscape.

With the mirror being the symbol of narcissism, and vanity its driving force, Fredericks considered that the mirror be used not to reflect ‘ourselves’ and petty obsessions, but to draw the gaze outwards to the immediate environment and the cosmos; poignant given our position as humans in our current social context. Consistent with his earlier Salt pictures, the images from the Vanity series allow us access to Fredericks’ sublime experience. Through their infinite variations of colour and light, the pictures award the viewer the freedom and meditative space Murray finds essential for our release from our own vanity.

So, I maybe don’t understand filming that well but it seems they are spending a long time at the lake location in the schedule for 13x01. So will it maybe focus a lot on the aftermath of 12x23 without taking the plot forward as such into new realms of them getting back in the impala and moving on quickly?

Grabby hands for all the emotional drama.

Also how beautiful is it here?!

A mix of three exposures with the Sony A77II and the Kit-Lens at 16mm ƒ2.8. Twenty seconds for the sky to avoid star trails, ten seconds for the otherwise too bright artificial lights and 30 seconds for the black lake to get more reflections.

After arriving at my friend’s house last Thursday for a visit, we took a long walk with her dog, Peggy, through Prouty Woods conservation area up to Long Lake.

Up at the lake, we ran into a young girl with her quite old Golden Retriever, Bailey, who was busy swimming way out in the water to retrieve a stick thrown by her owner, who was able to pitch the stick out to an extraordinary distance. Peggy, my friend’s 8 month old Labradoodle(half Lab/half Poodle) seemed fascinated and mesmerized by the swimming Bailey, but was reluctant to follow suit. She, instead, waited for Bailey to return to shore so she could steal the stick.
