workin’ on jelly belly
Which, I feel, illustrates two things remarkably well:
a) the near-impossibility of coming up with good captions; and
b) the folly of having a lab process your black & white film rather than doing as you should - eschewing laziness, getting your stuff from the lockup and doing it yourself. This scene shouldn’t have been difficult to scan and process, yet it was made so because the negative was processed to be way too contrasty. I guess a trip to the lockup is in my near future.
Still, I like the picture, and I especially like the fact that, on a nice evening I can just stroll down to the waterfront here in St. Kilda and depend on two things - the light will be beautiful and there will be something interesting happening. The corral/tape/bunting insanity evident the evening of this picture represented the setup for the next day’s triathlon or something. Doesn’t matter, it made for an interesting picture the moment this couple jogged past. The shadow on the bunting to the left just adds the touch the photo needs, I reckon.
Last time Sue and I wandered down there, a few days ago, the adjacent beach was besieged by news helicopters and police, as something that looked like body parts had washed up (which indeed they had, though it turned out they were animal, not human).
I wonder what will be happening down there this evening?
