Walking around the city.

November 30, 2004

Walked around the city with Rob and a few folks from the camera group, doing interesting things and learning things. Many more test images than real images, below are a few that catch my eye:

(The Story of the) Weeping Camel.

November 23, 2004

Seen at the Dendy on Sunday night.

I missed out on seeing this one at BIFF.

It documents a portion of a Mongolian family’s life, with the central problem of a baby camel not being accepted by its mother.

Most of the area is glorious to see on the big screen, it’s hard not get a sweeping landscape shot out there.

This movie is simple, intimate and warm and a pleasure to watch.

So yeah, this movie was very pretty, and it needed to be, as the plot was a fairly convoluted battle of wits rather than weapons. The pieces do stitch together very well in the end, and it definitely avoids a sickly sweet ending.

Creative Glass Guild

November 14, 2004

The Creative Glass Guild had their annual showcase this weekend, and I went along to take a look.

There’s a gazillion ways to make pretty glass, these guys do everything but glass blowing by the looks.

I bought one piece, a little black/white to pearl/clear nibbles tray.

And, of course, I took a few photos

Final Cut

November 14, 2004

I enjoyed this sf thriller. Robin Williams doesn’t need to try to prove himself as an actor any more, he’s made the cut. The technology may be the vehicle for the story, but most of the time is spent exploring the dark, seedy sides of human nature. Yummy.

Roma Street Parklands

November 1, 2004

I took these shots about a month ago, I haven’t bothered putting them up yet because I didn’t think any of them were any good, but I was wrong, a couple have a fair bit of potential.

I wasn’t that thrilled with the parkland itself, it’s all metal and awful concrete. The plants were wonderful, and the actual water itself was good.

It was spitting on the day, which made me grumble, until I realised that would be perfect for some water shots. I need to get a polarising filter if I continue to do this water stuff.
