Road trip. Darwin, Northern Territory. Pretty much as far north as we can go.

Although this is not how I would render it, the image makes me remember Francis Cabrel's "Repondez-Moi" (here, originally recorded in 1981):

But the last of the fairies seeks her magic wand
My friend, the stream sleeps in a plastic bottle
The seasons have stopped at the feet of synthetic trees
There’s no one but me

"Petermann Island" for +Artistic Google's March Break theme, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Inspired by +Chryssa Kotsanidou who is checking out Svalbard, I headed the other way to Petermann Island, Antarctica. After the coldest February on record and meters of snow all up the East Coast, I am sure there are, nevertheless, photographers who want to pack up their gear and shoot (in the nicest way) penguins. With a wink at those photographers, I inserted a little HDR processing in this at the outset, but then I went painterly, thinking of those scratchboards we played with as kids. This rough treatment, thanks to Topaz Impression, reminds me just a bit of Anselm Kiefer's paintings. You may have to look at the original to make out the photographer with his big lens and the wee penguins.

Doing some research for a textured acrylic painting, I came across the Toronto Stencil Archive - Martin Reis' fun album on Flickr. He has been documenting wall art since 1999.
