    That fifth photo looks remarkably similar to the cover for the classic Flesh ep by(the band that more or less morphed into Headless Chickens) early '80s Auckland band Children's Hour.

    I guess there are similarities. Well spotted.

  • ChrisW,

    Yes – striking, impressive images but I found them disconcerting. And the retention of a fragment of Raetihi’s much-photographed Ratana church as the first banner image on PAS has been a repeating reminder over these several weeks.
    Not necessarily a bad thing to be disconcerted by photos, and it took a while to identify why. The memory of difficult hitch-hiking in the vicinity of Waikune prison in the 1970s when it was a going concern? No, more general than that.

    Then I realised – ‘ki tua o te ārai’ – ‘beyond the veil’ – used in reference to the dead. Disconcerting dissonance with young daughter.
    Reinforced this morning by renewal of the PhotoForum at 40
    thread - that cover image of the book, titled ‘Shrouds’ [plural].

    Fine photos. Disconcerting but.
    Sorry if I’ve put too much effort and thought into this.
