This forms part of my view most days from around 7:30 to 4:30 each day. The space is shared with me by either one or both of our kittens Spike & Smudge.

This room has a Northerly aspect. I get to watch the light all day. It’s marvellous. The kittens are good company too.

I recently read somewhere, perhaps in a Bryan Formals newsletter, that one way to cope with the overwhelming news of the Pandemic, begin one’s day by Output rather than Input.

So this morning I went out and made pictures in the still wet backyard, we’ve had tons of rain here, it cried out to have some pictures made. Then I wrote this blog post. I have yet to open my email or a webpage other than flickr.

Sunset over Melbourne

What impact does a visual trope like a sunset have in this day and age of the networked image. Especially if it was made before flickr, facebook and probably google? This sunset was made circa 2002. It was made from the edge of the site where I worked from 1994 to 2013.

I’m thinking of posting sunsets fairly frequently as a kind of response to the current pandemic sweeping the world.
