Salt

    Came across this very interesting little film the other day - worth a look:

    Just watched the first few minutes (on abc iView: http://www.iinet.net.au/my/media/abc/index.html ), I'll look forward to watching that this evening. I love that area out in SA (having grown up an SA sheep farm boy, I guess it's expected), I took two big(er) photographic trips last year, both out that way. I've still got a lot of films to scan and have a proper look at, just the intro to that film has definitely got me inspired to get on to it! Just the sight of those scenes made me 'home' sick, I don't know why, but that area between Coober Pedy and the Strzelecki reserve, and the Flinders Ranges are the only place I've found where I feel 'at home', even though I've only travelled through there. Genetic memory maybe?

    Anyway, thanks for the post Ian, I can't wait to see the images further in the film. Although, I only watched up to where his trailer broke... I hope that's not the end of his expedition

    I sat up and watched it the other night. The images at the end were very good. Takes a lot of determination to ride a bloody bike out there, don't it?

    Just watched it over lunch, I really love hearing someone else's account of the solitude and 'aloneness' you feel out there. I think I will have to watch this with my partner when she gets back, because I know I've never been able to explain to her in my own words why I feel the need to get away from everyone and everything for weeks at a time! Fantastic photo's too, I'm a sucker for good clouds, and boy did he manage to get some! About halfway through I thought "Yeah, but, surely there could only be so many compositions he could come up with before he just repeating himself... ...I was impressed. Thanks again Ian.

    No worries Steve.
    My wife is going to get a viewing of it too!
    Seeing the set of images shown at the end of the film made me think I should do more colour photography than I do...

    Yep, especially when the ground turns to mud!

    I wonder how well his gear stands up to all the salt

    "I wonder how well his gear stands up to all the salt" I was thinking just that in one of the opening scenes of him riding out (taken from his point of view, looking at the handle bars and ground) where the salt was caking on the handle bars, I wonder if he needs a new bike each time he heads out there?!

    If I could afford to shoot trannies in 8x10 I would. That'd blow the socks off the digital crowd for sure. It'd make my partner happy too, she just doesn't appreciate B&W.

    Good to know I'm not alone!
