Chill out.. well kind of.

This year like most years, we drove up to Daylesford for Chill Out's Carnival day.
The atmosphere was great... as it always is. We found the best place to camp under some trees (no pun intended!), which meant that we had shade all day!
Last year's pirate theme lead to a lot of really interesting people  to photograph, this year not so...
but that's ok, as I stumbled across some great new abstract images whilst waiting for a friend to use the loo (long story)..

Here are some photographs from the day:

What is probably expected to be seen on the day- Men in drag:

Something not so expected of the day-a scorer's box from a nearby playing field:

Something inspired by the scorers box, a series called 'keeping score'. These were taken on the day and as is what happens with my abstract work, sometimes people mistakenly think I have photographed a painting.. which is kind of flattering ;-)

                                                       'Keeping score #1-4'

And, just becasue it is Chill Out, a faux double exposed digital image of some hot bod chilling under a tree (and the tree itself), surely is a must?:
