Sydney and Cockatoo Island

On the advice from Tess at Baldessin Press one of the first things I did on arriving in Sydney was to take the ferry across to Cockatoo Island - I am so glad I did!! I took a few hundred photos which I hope will inspire some future work here is a SMALL sample
And then of course I started getting down to the details.....................!!!



you can see where I'm going with this...............................!! No I'm not in a contemporary art gallery!!

Yes it was rust heavon again ................... I will be revisting again on my return to Sydney at the end of February as the William Kentridge installation that is there at the moment was not open the day I went and that I must see!!!

I love the photos, and I recognize the the bridge immediately, it's the sister bridge of the TYne bridge in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
OOOOOOOOOH William Kentridge, I saw his exhibit twice in New York a few years back. It gave me goosebumps, it was just BRILLIANT. I look forward to hearing about it when you visit.

Meanwhile all the best for the New Year.

How wonderful to find another fan of RUST. Your images are grand. I shall have to go to the Island when I get to go to Sydney.
