Image of the week…back on the other side of the world

27th June 2021

The windy roads tested our car sickness as we approached the opening of Queenstown in Tas. No google image searching or Wikipedia scrolling could prepare us for the untouched aesthetic of the small town. It was virtually dead as the last of the light settled. We pulled up to a house showing the only sign of life . A few kids playing and a father chatting to a neighbour.

As we chatted and I began shooting I have a vivid memory of this boy’s elder brother showing us his science books with awe and fascination. It was there we met Jay and his friend who were playing American football in the road Wayne’s World style.

I think one element I miss the most about road trips is the spontaneous interactions and the surprise when turning a new corner.
