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.
