BOOBOROWIE via Kapunda Music & Arts Festival 2013, & Burra

©bill purvis Text & Images
Glenda and I travelled to Booborowie for Priscilla's
21st Birthday Party.
Booborowie is a small country town in the mid north of South Australia,
population 130 about a 200km 2.5 hour drive from Adelaide.
We traveled via Kapunda dropping in to have a look at the Festival of Music & Art.

The photographs on exhibition at the 2013 Kidman Art Show were of a very high standard.
Junk sculptor Steve Oatway  http://www.renkrn8.com.au/
see my photograph of his creation of the biker,  is also a proficient photographer
securing a prize for his work shown here: http://www.kapundarotary.org.au/art.htm
The photographs are views of the exhibition, the town of Burra en-route (bridge and duck),
and views of the streets of  Booborowie.
We took the opportunity to test a recently acquired annex which hangs off the back of our Toyota Hiace Campervan.
It is a welcome addition providing shade and additional space to the living area.
It was an enjoyable weekend in the company of our dog Leo and son Hugh and Priscilla and her family and friends.
I should mention too all of Pils pals from the Adelaide Hockey Club who decked themselves out admirably for the occasion.

Cameo-elements of beauty


Beautiful day in Adelaide. Glenda and I cycled into the city to view the exhibition: http://www.samuseum.sa.gov.au/explore/exhibitions/the-australian-geographic-anzang-nature-photographer-of-the-year-2013
On the way home I was delighted to find the dissected remains of a 'road kill' Barbie? doll strewn 50metres along the gutter. With a project in mind inspired by Tracey Moffatt I composed an image in homage to her work 'Road Kill' and most recent 'Spirit Landscape'.
