I have decided that I haven’t been taking enough pictures since I arrived in Australia. Maybe I can blame it on the stress of finding an apartment, perhaps blame it on the fact that there were too many errands to run. But really, there isn’t an excuse for it. So, I am going to start a 30-day project in which I set out to make at least one picture a day for the next 30 days and then post it on this blog. They won’t necessarily be the most amazing or portfolio-worthy photos, but the idea is to just get out and take pictures no matter what. If anything, it will get me back into the swing of things before I really dive deep into my graduate project.
So, speaking of my graduate project, I just arrived in Laverton, Western Australia for my very first week-long visit. My goal this week is to get acquainted with the town, and meet as many people as possible. The real picture taking aspect of the project will probably start further down the line. This morning I just wandered around the town and then into the outskirts of Laverton. I had my iPhone with me with a new camera app on it called “Hipstamatic” which basically just messes with the colors and borders of your photos. So, for Day 1 of the 30-day project, here is a picture of the wide-open Outback on my walk this morning shot with the iPhone. Luckily, I haven’t been bitten/eaten by any poisonous creatures….. yet…..
And where the hell is Laverton you might ask? Well, I have marked it for you on this handy interactive Google Map:
