All Change

Took this as part of a 30+ multi-row stitched panorama a few years ago with a tilt shit lens I no longer sadly have. I was going through a lot of my old pics and thought this might be salvagable as a stand alone shot.


Now for something a little different….

Not sure if I actually like this or not, but I do like the little mush room clouds of roiling flame rising from the bars. Not really into this “type of photography” but fun to give it a go regardless, which is what it’s all about.  I was wandering back through Glebe Park in Canberra after photographing the kids at the nearby “Cube”  when the air was thick with the smell of kerosene and we spotted three fire jugglers. The “Cube”? The denizens of Canberra will now what I’m referring to, once upon a time it was sound activated (the Cube that is), just the place to drop a fart and watch in wonder as the Cube lit up, which was pretty much the sum total of Canberra’s night life when I was working there as a journalist in 1989-1991. Sadly they pulled the plug on the sound activated thing, no doubt to try and prise the large groups of farters away from the Cube and into the new Canberra nightlife. Anyway, this is 8000 ISO at f1.4 on Nikkor 85mm.
