(If youre interested in the accompanying narrative, the images in this series are best viewed in order, 1-5.)

He remembers being crammed between his two sisters in the back seat of the familys Hillman Husky as it snaked its way down the winding road to the rented holiday cottage by the sea. He recalls too the anguish of losing his favourite toy on the beach that very first day, a cloth rabbit with floppy, lopsided ears. His mother comforted him by saying it was like leaving a special piece of evidence - one day it would be found and that person would have proof that someone before them had walked that sandy path and felt that same sun on their skin. After that, at the end of each summer, he would take a small thing and carefully cover it over with little handfuls of fine white sand.

Now many years later, he brings his own family to that place on the coast and sometimes walks alone, eyes downcast, in an annual search for those missing orphaned objects


(to be continued)

The third in a series of images inspired by the Tasmanian cabinet maker and visual artist Patrick Hall. (Anyone interested in viewing some of his fabulous work may click here.)

Brought a tear to the eye this one Susie! The words are so good, it's easy to overlook the photographSmile but this one is, to my eyes, the best of the set so far (which seems to fit in with what you said earlier).
I'd encourage others to look at the inspiration of these shots, well worth it.
Excellent stuff.

Hi there, Paul. I'd intended just one more, but must admit I've rather enjoyed these, so might just have to review that - purely for my own amusement! The writings are a combination of Patrick Hall's words and my own, so a joint effort - delighted you like them ...

Great series so far. I just saw the first two and this is my favourite one yet.

Here is one for you:

She crouched behind half-open door as the footsteps drew closer. She could not tell who it was, but her anticipation was so intense that being discovered in her awkward position was not much of a concern. For she was waiting for a package that would change her life forever. And it mattered little whether the footsteps were from her snoopy neighbor with the crooked nose and big ears, the child next door who continually was retrieving errant balls from her front porch, the obsessive bill collector looking for his money, or the postman carrying her beloved parcel. The footsteps grew closer and then, without warning, the pencil she had been using to complete her crossword puzzle slipped out of her hand and landed eraser first and proceeded to bounce though the narrowly open doorway and onto the porch where it came to rest on the black shoe of the visitor. She froze, silently hoping that the owner of the black shoe did not notice. Then a voice pierced the quiet morning air; "Delivery for Susie from the photography supply company." Thankfully, her filters had arrived!

Later,

Patrick

had a look at the series. this definately is my favorite. Somehow all the elements come together very well here, including the forest-reflection in the window. The open door makes one wonder... have others been here ? (shiver shiver)

This has so much, the open door, the leaves and that red line up the centre. And the're just details, that make up a fantastic whole.

One of my favorities around here.
