Returning to the real world

My oh-so comfortable Converse skateboard shoe footprint in the red pindan dust of the Kimberley

After three weeks of shooting publicity and production stills here in Broome, it’s time to return to the real world. No more 4.30am wake-ups, twelve hour days working in red dust and 30 degree heat. Monday, it’s back to what remains of the Hobart winter,  perhaps even a little snow…but best of all, back to the family. 

But not before breaking the journey across the continent with a stop-over in Perth to catch up with old colleagues and friends. There’s a lunch booked in Fremantle for Friday, that I’m looking forward to. The collective photographic experience of those around the table will probably total several centuries.  Much wine and anecdotes to flow…of course.

I’m going to miss Broome. But I’m hoping that I might get re-called to shoot again later in the series. It’s been a great experience.

Just time today to photograph one more scene on location, final backup of files on external drives, packing and perhaps a swim at Cable Beach…the first chance I’ve had to hit the ocean in the three weeks I’ve been here. I’m going to miss the cameraderie of the crew. Thanks for making it such a great assignment, guys!
