Life is a lot slower and simpler out on the islands off west papua. If the roof leaks? You don't have to rush to Bunnings, you just wait for the rain to stop and find a banana tree. Oh and yes you need to find the roof repair guy, he'll be siting in the shade.

For those worried that I am neglecting my photography, don't stress. I am not! It is just that blogging has been a lower priority. I have been busy preparing for a solo exhibition at Meeniyan's Access Gallery (84 Whitelaw St. Meeniyan, Victoria Ph:(03) 5664 0101), from 4th to 18th. May.
The Exhibitions is based around the themes of Earth, mainly rock paintings, Wind and Water, mainly photographic works with a big emphasis on photo mosaics (my photo impressions) and collages. Collections of photographic eggs will also debut.

I must begin with considerable acknowledgement for inspiration from the work of a fellow VIC/TAS thread memeber of the Australian Photographers!! group on flickr, thescatteredimage and beyond that to david hockney. There is definitely something beautiful in these recompiled collages, hockney describes this finding his "lergy", in the distored perspective that shift slightly in time as well as space. I guess they tell more of essence than a single static image.

So what is my opinion, I don't really have a strong one. From a bandwidth point of view there is already enough of it wasted on flickr already, and what was wrong with putting your video on YouTube anyway? Is competition going to improve that service or more importantly flickrs?
I'm wondering if the flickr gods will be changing their motto from Flickr loves you, to Flickr who cares!

There are any number of good programs (too many to mention here) with which make your slide show and convert them into a video masterpiece. Try Microsoft's Photo Story 3 if you are looking for a free program to try out. At the very least you probably already have Movie Maker which can also do the job.
