Red Phone Listens for a Tram.
Sunday, May 06, 2007, 7:33 AM


Dear Diary - a lot of life is spent waiting for the next tram...

redeye The perspective from the level of red phone (situated pretty much centrally to this snap) pulls the parallel lines of the tram tracks and the palm trees along Bulla road towards their inevitable convergence. Red phone sits on the large, crushed rocks that lie between the tram rails, listening attentively for a tram...the sky is pale grey and hints of cool weather...

yellowsound The white noise of some passing traffic is overpowered by the approach and passing of a tram...the wind bumps at the microphone and an assortment of birds struggle to make themselves heard above the human-generated sississilation...

greensmell There is not a lot noticeable about the smell here, just a slight rusty, metallic aroma arising from the tram tracks, and an earthy, rubbly odour from the rocks and trees...

bluetouch The feet of my tripod scrape on the concrete division I am standing on when I take this shot...I stumble on the uneveness of the large, crushed rocks between the tracks and the concrete sleepers...the trunks of the palm trees are crumbling and powdery to the touch...I rub the rails and notice that they are cool and smooth on the half that has been polished by the decades of tram traffic, whilst the other half of each rail is pitted and pocked from an equal amount of weathering...

purpletaste Tastes of earth and rubble, vegetation and a hint of traffic fumes...it is a dry and dusty type of flavour...

Red Phone 2.
Sunday, December 25, 2005, 7:56 PM


Dear Diary - as if it wasn't enough to see good old Red Phone, it wasn't long before they were up to the old tricks - whispered conversations, secretive and passionate...someone is always left hanging on...

Red Phone 1.
Sunday, December 25, 2005, 7:47 PM


Dear Diary - I was reminiscing about some of the old crew from the 70s when who should drop by but none other than Red Phone? Looking seductive as ever on the crumpled landscape of the duvee…
