I have been working with some of the aerial photographs I took over Bundaberg recently. I didn’t expect the photos to be quite so bewitching. The landscape has mostly been to me, something you have to pass through in order to get from one significant place to another. That means hours and hours of hard scrappy, Aussie bush so boring that the Queensland transport bureau has erected signs asking the driver if you are ‘alert’! I have never been ‘alert’ in the Aussie bush.
I think the recent Bundaberg floods have compelled me to hear…and perhaps to really start listening as I have never done before.
