A photograph is often referred to as moment time, a moment in history. We each live moment to moment, between one decision and the next, right now those moments stretch and contract as we wait for world changing events to unfold. A microscopic organism is driving nations to make world changing decisions on a daily basis. While the population is asked to stay home .

I didn't want to tell the tree or weed what it was. I wanted it to tell me something and through me express its meaning in nature. - Wynn Bullock

Tasmania's native foods are ready to harvest, fruits and grains can be found growing on road sides, in native forest stands and around the edges of plantation forests. There's some great recourses available to help foragers find the tastiest foods and use them creatively, such as Rees Campbell's Eat Wild Tasmania.
This week was my Tasmanian Waratah- Telopea truncata week, at the start of the week I went in search of the rich red flowers at a location I regularly visit, to work on a project. But later in the week I encountered the blooms in other locations that I hadn't been thinking about and had other plans- but I could resist photographing them over and over again, find their stage of development, their colour variety and form totally absorbing.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Tasmania.
Wild walking for a cause, National Park and World heritage should be enough to protect land from development by private enterprise- right? Well here in Tasmania it may not be enough so we put our feet, shoulders and bodies out there to show our support - Malbena matters.
