As you may be aware, I tend to let my mind wander a bit when I am taking pictures of things other than birds and such like - I like to see if I can chase an idea.
These images are about the old and the new of Australia - the dynamic of change and the resistance of history. My mind went that way when I saw the modern glass building, with the red tin roof in front of it. If Australia has a traditional building material, its corrugated iron sheets. And the sound of rain on a tin roof - the back of our house has one - has become one of my favourite sounds. So, I though this was an image about the "then" of the past and the "now" of the present. Of course, its highly likely its just a picture of a roof and some glass really!
The rest of the pictures are about the old being made new, and the new being made from nothing - or they are pictures of building sites and scaffolding! Tell me what you think!
