Fresh Eyes.

These two B&W images were from a while ago.
Part of a series from the St Kilda Festival, not far from where I had a studio,
they weren't received overly enthusiastically by the clients I had.
I was a clean photographer.  Safe and categorised, I should "stay with what I was good at".

I liked these images, and I never forgot about them.

They played on my mind for a long time...

And after being away from my camera for what seemed like an eternity,
I realised that I had failed to take the pictures I wanted to take, all those years ago.

The desire to take the picture I want to take is still there.
I still love these pictures, gritty as they may be.

They were the pictures I wanted to take and
they are reflected in many of the images I produced now.
