The chess board was installed in Hyde Park in 1972 (History). The board is located at the northern end near St James station. When I worked in the city I used to wonder over and watch during lunch hour. Generally people, I think, consider it slow game so I thought I’d try to capture some action by blurring the movement with a variable neutral density filter fitted to the camera’s lens.

At Seventeen Seventy which is just south of Rockhampton on the Queensland coast we spent a relaxing afternoon lounging on the beach looking over to a sand bank in the mouth of the estuary. Patiently waiting for the right combination of pelicans and seagulls, which were plentiful, was a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
