It's only been a few weeks since I returned from my holiday in New Zealand. But so much has changed in those few weeks that editing these photos seems like reviewing photos from years ago, in another world. One where we were effectively free to go wherever we liked whenever we liked.
I loved driving from one dramatic landscape to another, at will. Camping out and making my plans up as I drove along.
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 .
So this is the landscape of my day.
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
Halfway through my recent holiday to the country I grew up in, I realised that trees were becoming the dominant focus of my daily photographic explorations.
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.
