Alien Light ©billpurvis

Inspired by Stephen Shore.
Movement, shape, shadow, reflections,
colour and light, and an exploration
of the image within the frame.
The ebb and flow, the wind in the rushes, the changing light,
the detritus on the river bed.
40 still frames on one canvas create for a moment a 3D
This is  re-edited Gif from 2016.

Aperture Folio - Sport, the rivalry, the skill. ©billpurvis

A Gif of my folio of sports action moments.

My submission to the Aperture Folio competition.
So many up and coming photographers.

Good luck to them.

Hobart - April - 2018

A week in Hobart from April 7 -14.

We stayed in a loft AirBnb with views across Bellerive Yacht Club.

A diver prepares to descend at the Brooke Street Pier.

The Gif is compiled of 134 still frames.
The frames may take time to load.
Each frame was originally a 12mgb image.
The camera was hand held for the duration and shot
through the mesh of a fence.
The original posting has been titled and edited to adjust the timing
and draw out the content of a few frames.

Dog & bone
The previous property owner shot the wallabies that came onto the property and left the carcasses
in a creek bed. No shortage of bones for poochy.

A bit windy. At the ferry terminal waiting to return.
