My friend, Rob Crapnell, and I make regular visits to Tin Can Bay to photograph the town’s foreshore. The best time is in the morning when all is still. I have taken many images of this tree, using a variety of film formats and in a range of weather conditions and tides. To date I think this is as good as I have got. However, this tree has more to reveal, and I plan to revisit it to see it in a different light.

In Memoriam. Scan of 5×7 negative. We had to put down Kayla, our 8 year old silver standard poodle, due to cancer of the lymph nodes, on Tuesday 22nd November. Kayla and I spent many of our morning poodlewalks in the local Waitpinga bushland, Ngarrindjeri country. It was her favourite spot, she helped me see the detail in the bushland, and many of my photos were made with her. This photo is in her memory. Website. Instagram. Facebook. In Memoriam.
