    Bink: Beautiful Ending to Oz 

    I’ve reached the end of the trail with the images from my trip to New Zealand and Oz.  There may be odds and ends that I edit from time to time, but these pictures of Bink represent  the last of the best.  It makes me a little sad to wrap up this creative journey that started a year ago starting to plan the trip and ending now editing the last pictures.  In between was a lot of hard work planning a New Zealand trip for 4 fun companions to eventually join more than 20 talented creative souls from OZ, Scotland, England, and the USA in Mission Beach, Australia.  And though the sights were incredible, the unforgettable thing for me is the bounds of old friendships strengthened and the  new friendships made, the unselfish sharing of talent by some amazing photographers and the intrepid spirit of the models as they climbed rocks and trees, waded in muddy pools, greeted the dawn in warm tropical breezes, balanced on logs, fought off swarms of jungle flies and wild killer birds.  Of course all of this made smoother with the local lubricants of Toohey’s and Murder Point. I’ve never seen a 30 pack of beer before. 🙂

    And in the end, I am blown away by all the incredible images I’ve created from the trip with the help of such talented, creative people.  I felt like I was able to experiment with new technical aspects of photography – becoming a better photographer as well as new directions in editing that have expanded my creative abilities.

    Well, Back to the final images.  As you may notice, you don’t see Bink’s feet in any of these shots.  As told before, the poor lass had cute her foot on some rocks and then had a crab bite her other foot and she could barely walk and needed to keep her shoes on.  So we shot around her boots.  In spite of all that she kept going as we hiked and limped up the Mt Kataloo trail on Dunk Island with me worrying if we should stop.  We made it half way up the mountain not seeing many shooting sites until we came upon this massive tree,  which I believe is a Banyan Tree.  It was so huge it must have been 100’s of years old.  Bink expertly used her famous green shawl to create some classic images complimenting the dark brown bark and green moss on the tree.

    Is that a word?  Well it applies.  As Bink mentioned in her posting, it was a day of adventure.  Here’s a few more from our morning session at Mission Beach. I believe several of these are some of the best fine art images I’ve ever created thanks to a beautiful sunrise, a tropical morning and a very talented lady.  To see more go to the posting “Bink at the Beach” on my blog  http://figuremodels.org/ericscott

      How are you selecting them? do you want us to submit our top 10? I’ve put most of what I consider the best ones either in this blog or mine. I’ve got a few more of Bink that are pretty good that I’ll be finishing over the next week or two (haven’t posted any of those yet) woo hoo….excited about this!

    Still editing – Still remembering – Rei 

    Have I told you all how much we loved Mission Beach? I can still feel the ocean breeze and humidity in my mind. Our house didn’t hurt the vibe one bit. I still wish I had video of Rei dancing her Bollywood dance. So I could post it here! She’d probably throw a smack my way all the way from Canberra though! All in good fun. I’ve known Rei for years and we worked together in 2004 for the first time with successful results. Many book publishings and magazine publishings with a few of our images. Now from this time working together I’ve already sold one of our prints. What a great feeling for both of us to know that someone wants to own a fine art piece from our work together. One of the prints from this session sold… the “Jim Morrison” pose. 😉 I was excited when we peeled the negative back and saw the unique destruction of the print that you only get with the Holga/Polaroid back combo. Nice. I hope the owner of the new print enjoys seeing it on their wall for a very long time. Thank you.

      I’m glad you sold a print, Z. It’s a nice image.

      I’m just sorry I wasn’t there to record Rei’s Bollywood dance on video. It sounds like a definite highlight…LOL

      Rei’s Bollywood dance was awesome. It’s a very organized movement. And the music was cool.

    Muse @ our house on the beach. Trying to get that feeling of fulfillment back again as the weather turns cold, and the rain pours down. An island awaits in a couple weeks… until then, I’ll remember being here. I’ll remember walking outside and finding Muse cocooned inside of the hammock. Rei in her room practicing her Indian dancing. And myself opening the refrigerator in elation noticing the thoughtful chilled coffee Muse made me just to be nice. I really miss this place.

      The setting looks so surreal, so stark! Works especially well with the images where Muse’s hair is flowing down.

      I love the side note about the fridge & the coffee left for you by Muse – she’s a beautiful person inside and out & I think her kind, sweet personality really shines through in these images.

      Thank you, Bink!

      Yes. the coffee. The espresso machine and I had a terrible fight the first day we arrived. The espresso machine won by spitting out hot water all over my dress and the floor and counter. I gave up and ran down the road to the coffee shop. The next day – because I guess Muse is more adapt at figuring out how to work foreign espresso machines – there was a lovely mocha chilled in the refrigerator. I think I may have made much noise or something during my brawl. ha. But, it’s the little things like that in life that make you smile.

    Diva Moment 

    Polaroid Type 85 went right after SX-70. It’s understandable about Type 85 really. I mean, I’m the only one I know who ever shot nudes with it. Maybe someone else is out there? If so… let me know! I want to see your work too. Holga w/Polaroid back and Type 85. I still have mass amounts of film left.

    I thought I would go through 12 packs in Australia, but alas… I broke my Polaroid bucket once I got to OZ and had to use a bowl from the house I rented so trucking around in the rainforest wasn’t so optional. Improvising is fun.

    One day I photographed Rei and Muse at the house we were staying in together. The quote of the day was, “Ladies! Quit talking about boys and start talking about POSES!” I was running back and forth from the bowl to the shooting spot with Polaroid goo on my fingers and the paper stuff stuck to them while trying to hold two developed positives in my mouth at times. I swear if I ever had a “diva moment” that was it. Muse and Rei continued to taunt me about it for days. I’m certain my hair MUST have been sticking out all over the place too. It wasn’t… but it ads to the drama so play along. I was acting very exasperated because I was actually upset at the sun. See, it was moving way too rapidly and I needed it to stay where it was for at least another hour. But, of course time doesn’t play that way… so exasperated I was. Here are some of the “diva moment” photographs. With Type 85 of course.

      Love the drama and the stories…..every shoot is an adventure whether fighting off cassowaries or taming the sune 🙂 Lovely images too.
