Photos: Another Launceston weekend

It was a weekend in Launceston, Tasmania, with friends, although the main adventures took place in the surrounds. For some reason I kept seeing scenes and subjects that reminded me of Georgia O’Keeffe – the barns, the flowers. Maybe it was, after a crazy week of world news, as simple as feeling inspiration from an artist who never painted a person but instead focussed on the interestingness in the world without them.

Dutch-style barns, free-range chooks, flowers in a walled garden, and architecture built by convicts (or slaves as they are known elsewhere). These are some of my photos from another nourishing weekend in Launceston.

  1. Just found your website and particularly like the Launceston photos. Some of them – especially the interiors and farm buildings – remind me of the aesthetic of Robert Ingpen, a painter and illustrator who did quite a lot of work in Tasmania.
