Dolerite and Lattice in the Cataract Gorge  Launceston Tasmania

Dolerite and Lattice in the Cataract Gorge Launceston Tasmania Some thoughtful person built a home or maybe just an office next to the entrance of the Cataract gorge.

The lady said are you one of these people that constantly looks at your phone? No I said there are qualities in the light shape and forms that interest me. As I look at the light this irrepressible force makes me concentrate on what is before me no matter how simplistic or mundane.  I have to record the composition with camera or much less often now a pencil and sketchbook. Its the way I am and have always been. I think she understood but I felt there were doubts…
