Catching Up and looking back at a bluestone building

It is hard to know what to talk about this week. It has been busy but mainly because I am trying to get some writing done. I think this is going to be a short post.

The magazine

We are well and truly in the final stages for the next issue of Dynamic Range. We have another broad selection of articles for you. We are also so happy that Kathleen Clemons has let me interview her and we will be looking at some of her images. I’m sure those of you who get it will really enjoy it.

It will be the last issue of the magazine for those that subscribed at the beginning of the year.

Deaf Children Australia

I haven’t been there much in the last couple of years, but yesterday I went there to take photos as they celebrated their 150th anniversary of the blue stone building. I was looking at the building and thinking about how my work has changed since I was last there to photograph it, so I ask someone there if I would be able to go back. He just handed me his card. I think that meant yes. I will have to organise it now.

I will have to find some photos so we can see what I was doing and then we will have something to compare when I go back. Photos today are from 3 years ago.

Mentoring

I just want to talk about this briefly again, to help people understand what it is.

It really is about a discussion, a guide, a way of me to help you work out what your style is, or what direction you would like to go in. It is about me looking at your work, guiding you and helping you, but the thing that happens the most is the conversation, lots of that.

Other News

There isn’t really any. It has been good to see that people are enjoying the return of the Up for Discussion (U4D) posts. I have to start working out what to write about next week.

I think that is about it, sorry, as I said, I’m busy with writing, plus Tiddles, our cat, isn’t well, and we are a bit worried about him. He is staying at the vets tonight has they try to help him.

  1. Beautiful images Leanne .. I hope Tiddles is going to be ok

  2. I remember the bluestone building series you did. It’ll be great if they give you access to see and photograph how things have changed. Big purrs to your Tiddles.

    • I think I can, I just have to find time, I would love to see what I could do with it now. Thank you, and yes, Tiddles, poor old man, he is starting to show his age.

  3. Lovely color in the stained glass and texture in the wood. Beautiful. Have a good week, Leanne.

  4. Beautifully done with the Bluestone building. It is a very nice clear sky you got there, but maybe next time you return there will be clouds and your images will turn out different. It is an impressive building, and maybe I’ll get to see it at some point.

    Good to hear that you are busy with writing, being productive. Then again, it is also these times that you may feel that you don’t have time for everything 🙂 Hopefully Tiddles feels better soon. I like your take on mentoring as guiding. We all certainly have our own ways and styles of doing things, and usually it is a way that we are comfortable with.

    • Thank you Mabel. I hope so, I will have to plan for that I think.
      Yes, Tiddles is better, but not over for him yet, he has to go back end of the week.
      I love mentoring, it is a great way to teach.

  5. I hope Tiddles will be feeling better soon.

  6. I hope Tiddles will be OK.

  7. Wow, Leanne. You are certainly keeping busy! Hope all continues to go well with the magazine.

    Hi Leanne My favouriite photos are those taken inside the building especially those showing old parts.

Talk to me, it is too quiet.
