2 days to go … whoohooo

I travel to Bali on saturday for my daughter’s wedding … so exciting …  7 days of heat and photography, catching up with family and friends and whatever adventures await.

In 2007 when i travelled to Switzerland to spend time with my daughter and my future son-in-law I did a foundart series where i created small original collages and lost them along the way … see the series here >>>

For this trip the collages are larger, postcard size and i plan to create another foundart series2.  Keep a watch on this space. <<< for the Bali foundart series. As Always, do let me know what you think .

foundart series 2009 in progress 12

i shall begin with how the pieces began and keep up to date with losing the series and photographing in situ and hopefully i will have a few stories to tell as the series unfolds.   >>> Gina

photography awards

i am a bit overwhelmed at the moment … a few competitions have come to fruition and i have been lucky enough to be overwhelmed with good feedback for photography entered, a couple of awards and some published pieces  …

IMAGE – the photography magazine of the Australian Photographic Society, July/August edition is featuring a page of my haiga (images with haiku) and i have an article to write for the next edition due in August.  This magazine is beautifully printed in full gloss and available at your local library.  This came about thanks to the contemporary folio that i am a part of.

Here is one of the pieces (the rest will be uploaded to blumoon)

a depleted (haiga)

this one won the SMALL PRINT Tasmanian Photographic Federation prize for 2009

its called Heritage

It is always exciting to receive news of published pieces.  The Gean Tree Press has published, in their June 2009 edition, 2 haiku, 3 tanka, 3 haiga of mine.  I have uploaded half of them to the blumoon site.  (Will upload the other half tomorrow).

Please do visit Gean Tree Press  and read all the wonderful poets featured in this, the first issue. – the link will also be up in my blogroll at my poetry site.

i am travelling to Bali in a couple of weeks and i am thinking of doing another ‘foundart series’ …. see the first one here .  And with that in mind, i have been playing these past couple of weeks …

looking forward to seeing where these end up (as art and in places) ! ….  >>> Gina

poetry … haiku … freeXpression

i use blumoon to update my published pieces and when i posted the haiku recently commended and to be  published in june, ‘old oak’ i did a freeXpression search on my site and i cant find previously pubished haiku by this publication listed… so i shall do so in the next two posts …  the dates will be a little out but so be it !

i keep scrupulous track of published pieces in hardcopy and on my computer files … the website seems to have slipped …   🙂
