A calm morning, Strahan, Tasmania, 2012(?)…
A day in the life: Pt.24
And so my little experiment concluded in Williamstown, at the very end of a dark jetty, listening to the fishermen to my right maintain a warm banter to combat the cold air, while the lights of the city shone across the bay.
What a day! I’d tracked north, south, east, and west of the city, and shot a much wider range of subjects than I had anticipated, all with one lens, one camera, and 24 exposures. I’d like to think I’ll carry away something of the importance of actually valuing every single frame, making every shot count. Time will tell on that front.
(Oh, and the more astute viewers might notice that shot #23 is conspicuously absent – entirely my fault, and an accident where I pressed reject rather than save. Next time I will be more careful!)

I was on my way out to the airport to collect Sharon, with one of those awkward amounts of time – too early to go and park at the airport, too late to go too far out of the way. Then I remembered this spot. I like to think that the plane in the centre of the frame was Sharon’s, almost home…

The stormy clouds in the frame lived up to their fearsome appearance; by the end of the exposure, it was already starting to rain…
