The Postcard Show

I have two sets of photos in Holiday Snaps – A Members' Postcard Show at PhotoAccess. That's not quite what I planned. I set out to produce a 'mini retrospective' of ten favourite travel images I had not shown before, but somehow the project took off at a tangent. This is better, I think, with only a nod to the past and a stronger focus on more recent work. As for the two very different sets of images, both are equally 'me'. I am glad the 10 images limit gave me scope to show both together.

This is the Polaroid 600/Holga set. The beach, the ocean baths, the spotted gum tree, even Canberra's lakeshore in the early morning – holiday dreaming, anyone?

And here's the 35mm/DSLR set. Something old, something new – my favourite photo from Canberra's 2006 Balloonfiesta, fishing boats at Essaouira (taken on a 2001 photo tour to Morocco), a battered weathervane snapped in some friends' back yard last December.

The show continues until Sunday, 21 February. More information is available here.
