ticky2002 Ruin Wonder // Near Redesdale
#igers_vic
What was it? Who owned it? When were they there? When did they leave? Where did they go? How did they live? Why has it crumbled? So many questions, but no answer, just busted old bits of a building with beautiful views that's been left to crumble.

ticky2002 Generations // Geelong
#igersgeelong
Yesterday I couldn't help but be intrigued by all the different groups of people dining on the Westfield overpass, however it wasn't until I took this picture that I realised why. In front of me on my left was a group of ladies out for tea and scones, to my right what appeared to be a mother, child, newborn and grandma, and then down the back another couple, baby and grandparent. What I was witnessing was the whirl of worlds amidst many generation groups.
Age is a number. An indicator of our birth, of our generation, of our time. But as seen here, all ages can and do mingle amongst one another seamlessly, and somehow, all our worlds work together to form one. I think one of the best things about being out and about alone is the opportunity to watch the world around you, as opposed to being consumed by the commotion coming from the chair infront.

Driving home for an early night,
want to be up before daylight.
Under a bridge did stop my traction,
waiting for rain pass became abstraction.

ticky2002 Glass Negative Intrigue // PSC
#igersmelbourne
Keep reading to see what you are looking at, for this is not my image...
Last night in class we had a look at some old glass negatives in order to expect how they had been put together etc., but for me it was the history of the subject that had me intrigued. By old, I mean 1910 old! The gentleman in this picture may well have gone off to World War I just four years later, who knows really? Regardless, what I was holding was 105 years old. One hundred and five years old. Glass. One. Hundred. And. Five. Year. Old. Glass. How easily could that break??? Now or somewhere in the time since it was made. Just think about.
It felt so very different to hold an image made on glass compared to paper or even seeing images digitally on a glass device, it made them feel ever so fragile and delicate, far from disposable.
Of course, being a negative you see the opposite to what the picture really is. In order to see my image properly, I put it up to my laptop screen for light, and then changed the settings on my phone to 'Invert Colours', so then when I opened the camera on my phone and pointed it at the negative I could see the true image. Fascinating!! If you are able do it to this image now you will also be able to take a look. The feeling may not be there, but my gosh it was last night! :)

  •   kathryn_p_p Oh wow, did it. How fantastic, and I thought I knew everything about my phone lol. I could only view the picture I took putting it back to invert colours. Even when I did a screen shot of it inverted it was still negative when I tried to view it. Amazing stuff. Looks like it's in perfect condition though 2w
  •   kathryn_p_p Just sent it to my iPad so I can have a better look :-)) 2w
  •   kathryn_p_p lol, you have me intrigued now!! Going to send to light room to see if I can convert :-)) 2w
  •   fox_cottage So cool wasn't it!? 🏼🏼🏼 2w
  •   ticky2002 @edgeofsuburbia It does a little bit hey! Oh nice one! I'm not sure how much study I'm going to do, but if I had to pick photojournalism would be for me. Let me know how your class goes!! I'd love to check out more old photos like it now 2w
  •   ticky2002 @kathryn_p_p No worries! I'm glad you could get it to work and learn how to do it :) It always tricks me too. Because it inverts the phone, not the actual image, it is still negative you are just seeing positive. Would need to use a program to flip the images colours in order for it to stay. I really want to see more now 2w
  •   ticky2002 @fox_cottage Yeah it was hey!! Loved it. Want to see more now and shoot on glass! Haha 2w
  •   chapterandverse Live glass negatives, and they're so rare now. The reproduction quality is phenomenal and the scalability of print is unlimited. Truly remarkable things 2w

ticky2002 Slow Suicide // Melbourne
#igersmelbourne
Sucking on cigarette's is a slow form of suicide, eating out the body from within. Do not tell me you do not know, for it is into a coffin you and your sin shall go. Fight the filthy habit.

ticky2002 Location Looking // North Geelong
#igersgeelong
Yesterday afternoon I decided to go explore Geelong some more. The light was in and out of the clouds but nice and crisp when it showed itself. I left our house and figured I would just drive and see what I could discover. I headed West, zipping around a bunch of suburbs before ending up at a couple of places I had been to on previous visits to Geelong. After that I decided to head towards the industrial section of the bay. The roads are a bit confusing when crossing all the rail tracks and the highway, but somehow I ended up in North Geelong at some stunning old buildings around the Classweave Industries tower and old Federal Woollen Mill. What a find! These buildings are beautiful. The rich evening light made the red brick buildings pop with a stormy-esque looking sky above, so I hung around the carpark a while just watching the way the light played on the buildings and altered the mood and feel of the area. Think I'll be back again - especially as there was also a huge Vintage Market there among many other random businesses.

ticky2002 Fun Fact // North Geelong
#igersgeelong
I was 18. I had recently finished school and saved up $10,000 thanks to five years of working at a supermarket throughout my school years. Yes, I started when I was 13 (I was 12 when I started my first non-family job).
Anyway, I gave myself two choices:
1) Buy a VW Beetle, or
2) Buy a one way ticket to England.
I chose the latter. My fork in the road led to a runway. Not for one moment have I ever regretted that decision, and my gosh has it shaped my life ever since. But with that said, every time I see a shiny, old white VW Beetle like the one pictured, like the one I was going to buy, a smile spreads across my face and I fondly reminisce and wonder - what could have been and where would I be now had I chosen to purchase a bug instead. Have you ever had a similar experience?

ticky2002 Never Nothing // Geelong West
#igersgeelong
Today I chose to do nothing. I have nothing that needs doing until Tuesday night, so I thought I would just rest, relax and see what comes of the day. I don't watch much TV but turned it on whilst eating my lunch breakfast where I was intrigued by history in and of York, England. Afterwards, now, there is a very fascinating documentary on the Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto which would be well worth the watch if you can see it repeated or online. Now I want to go off exploring photographically. "The more you investigate the more you realise you don't know." - Sugimoto
