The Dead Are More Alive Than The Living - Bendigo Art Gallery Art

May 19, 2022  •  7 Comments

It is something that I do not realise until the pandemic hit out at us. This piece of art installation arrived Bendigo in 2017. The skull weighs 5 tons and is a artwork by Sydney artist Alex Seton. "Keeping on Keeping on" is the scripture written at the base of the stone piece.

I did quite a number of snaps around this skull over the years. It is my preference to use Sony FE 50mm f1.2  that gives a great narrow depth of field. Different sentiment is depicted through this beautiful lens.

At one stage, I find 50mm optic design not great for sharpness at any aperture brighter than f2.0; however, it is not the case with Sony FE 50mm f1.2. I am finding myself more in love with this focal length again should I give the credit to this lens.

I am starting to shoot my surroundings with 50mm focal length again. It is never easy but it gives that challenge to do creative photography

What striking images! I envy people who can experiment with different lenses and settings. I cannot focus though the viewfinder because of my vision, so I have to use a point-and-shoot camera or my iPhone. But I still have fun with photography. I hope your weather warms up soon. Have a good weekend.
Striking images.

Great photos of the skull! The 50mm is a great lens, and as you said it is wonderful for creative work - it almost forces you to be creative. I have become quite lazy and don't use it very often anymore.
