A Man and his Ute | Monochrome Madness 2 – 30

This week we have been travelling down south to Gulgong and then Tasmania on a five week adventure.  I have been waiting for ages for this to happen.  We are now in Gulgong on Chris’s farm which consists of a shed, fully insulated with a wood fire and all the mod cons and 250 acres of land with about 200 head of sheep on it at the moment.  We are here for two weeks then heading to Tasmania via a birthday in Wollongong.

On our way here we were trying to find the Superman shed that was filmed in Australia (well some of it was).  A property was asked to grow corn and then cut it at a certain length to look like the first movie that was probably made in the US.  They built the barn and actually left it in the field.  It was too far away but I did manage to capture Chris waiting patiently for me to finish snapping so we could get moving on our way.

I like the photo because its Chris and his ute, he has done a lot in this ute and with it.  It signifies freedom I think to him but that’s just my theory.  The fact that I had a long lens 100-400 meant that I was further away and didn’t make him nervous so I got a “real” shot of him in his element, out on the land just being free.A man and his ute (1 of 1)

    • Thanks Jet for your lovely comment. Glad you are along for the ride. Hopefully the fun part will start soon. So far we have been making fences on the property in the heat and with hayfever so hoping for a few better days to come 🙂
