An exhibition in 5 theaters, curated by Colin Rhodes. The exhibition is on at the SCA Galleries in Lilydale until April 30, you can find out more here.
This was definitely an eye opening show, for those not familiar with Roger’s photographic work it is both fascinating and at times disturbing. As well as Roger’s photography the exhibit includes 3 video presentions, including the award winning Die Antwoord video he directed for “I fink u freeky”.
The highlight was the “Theater of Darkness” an immersive tour in the dungeons of this old psychiatric hospital. A work in progress by the photographer, I really don’t know how to describe it, except that it was fascinating and kind of creepy. The tour is free but booking is essential through the SCA website.
I don’t know how I would describe Courtney’s music.. Definitely rock with a punkish poetic twist? And raw honesty. Hearing her play live is a great experience and you realise that some songs are just that much better loud and in the moment.
Nothing to do with the title, but I just bought a pair of Doctor Who blackmilk leggings! 12am is not a good time to shop but could. not. resist. Look at this collection!
Checked this out today (I’m two weeks into a current Roti obsession). It’s tucked away next to the Old Clare hotel (who have recently opened a pool/cocktail bar that looks AMAZING).
This is a cute little alley selling Asian goodies with various stalls and open seating. Payment is via pay pass or you can purchase a prepaid card to use which makes everything quick and easy.
This precinct based around the Central Park development in Sydney isn’t quite finished but you can already tell just how great it’s going to be.
Work was a little stressful this week so I started out with a lot of Royal Blood and even revisiting Wolfmother, but the end of the week has mellowed out into a Holy Holy mood. I’ll also throw in Tame Impala for good measure, if you haven’t seen this clip yet then you should. I was lucky enough to see them at the Sydney Opera House Forecourt last month which was phenomenal!
Finished a wall hanging! This is the more sedate piece I said I was working on.
Cheers to the weekend, I hope you’ve had a good week!
There’s so much to see around Sydney (or a short drive away). I love to explore new places, and test out my photography skills. I don’t intend to just share photography on this page, and I am definitely an amateur, but it’s a fun hobby to pursue. My friend has been giving me a few pointers on adjusting shutter speeds and aperture, so watch this space for things to improve 😉
The Helensburgh Rail Tunnels are located in the small town of (surprise surprise) Helensburgh, which is about halfway between Sydney and Wollongong. The old station was closed and the tunnels no longer used after the train line was duplicated in 1915 and a new station was built.
We visited the Metropolitan tunnel and the Helensburgh Tunnel.
The Metropolitan Tunnel spans 624 metres and descends. Because of this most of the tunnel is flooded. It is a home to glow worms though, which is pretty neat! The area is very lush and green – and wet! Gumboots are a must if you want to explore properly, as is a torch (head lamps can come in handy).
The Helensburgh tunnel is around 80 metres long and is fenced off but we still had a little look.
You can read more about the history of the tunnels by visiting the website of the local historical society here.
