Archie's Latest Post

This is the latest iteration of Archie's blog. We thank the moderator of Fyansford Community Noticeboard for suggesting we refrain from posting on his site as Archie's posts perhaps would be more suited on a different blog; hence Archie's Turf, which will comprise posts based on Archie's P&P (his real home-turf) followed by our neighbourhood walk. Each photoshoot will have a different focus.

Back in 2019 Archie and I began our daily walks around GEN FYANSFORD Riverside residential estate situated east of Moorabool River. Because of my limited mobility, we restricted our morning walks to generally one block per day.

As the 2020 covid pandemic resulted in restrictions on outdoor activities and a general state of community depression (myself included), I endeavored to set goals for myself that became purposeful distractions. My target - to walk both sides of every street in our neighbourhool over the period of lockdown.

In truth, at a purely personal level, this is a daily photographic "distraction' for me.

I have several rules which guide my photoshoots

  • all photos are taken with my iPhone,

  • all photos are taken from public property (footpaths, parklands, streets or river banks). I encroach on a front garden only with owners' permission (e.g. close-ups of Lauren's  imaginings).

  • I restrict myself to taking a single photo of each aspect.

  • The shoot is restricted to a circuit essentially one block (approx. 15-20 minutes).

  • On returning home I allow an hour for editing and posting of photos.

  • I minimise personally-identifying features (house numbers, number plates., personal portraits, etc. 

If any member of my community would prefer a photo to be withdrawn please let me know (Fyansford.com@gmail.com)

Depending on weather, personal inclinations and the availability of time, Archie and I will venture further afield exploring focal areas in the broader Fyansford locality. i.e. parkland, river walks, lookouts and varied residential estates.

at least once every month I try to take Archie for an adventure ~ to some more-distant Fyansford landmark.

Sure it means a drive in the car; but that's all part of the outing...

One restriction - I have to be able to navigate the terrain
