Rubber ring and reflections at Parsons Falls on Delta 100 film

For a moment I had the place to myself. Just me and the rubber ring. Despite its isolation and elevation (1,030m), Parsons Falls has become a hotspot for Tasmanian locals on summer weekends because of the short and relatively easy walk to get there.

Steam from mug of tea caught in window light at Lady Lake Hut on tri-x film

Just over one hour’s walk gets me to this hut on the Central Plateau. Lady Lake Hut is 1,130 metres above sea level and the walk is steep. Sometimes there is snow outside this window, sometimes frost. When I am there and no-one else is, on a weekday like this, I heat my water and […]

Monstera in laundromat on Ilford Ortho 80 film.

This is the Deloraine Laundrette on Emu Bay Road. I usually stop in here on my lunchtime walk when I’m at work. I like the spider plants in plastic ice cream containers and the huge old school dryers. What laundromat is complete without a monstera climbing the wall too!
