Then a moody urban landscape diptych of single power poles was selected for inclusion in the prestigious Blake Prize in 2004; something I had dreamed of but never thought could happen! When I set up my Flickr account, (Flickr was the first true photo-sharing web 2.0 social networking platform; My Space was more for musicians & school kids..) it was to showcase my urban landscape style of images. And it was on Flickr that I also had my first experience of alienating my audience when I made a return to fashion and started showing fashion images as well as the urban landscapes and abstract imagery; the change (return?) didn't go down well with everyone. Now I think that not only has Flickr changed, a lot.. the people who do follow me over there are well aware of my photographic proclivities which extend to people and clothing as well as inanimate objects and the urban landscape. I enjoy all the forms of photography I work in and they cross over and inform one another, though not always in an explicit way. This shot was made last week at a shopping centre in Brisbane, on the way to my sisters.. When opportunity knocks, grab it with both hands.
Shot with my Fujifilm X-Pro1.
