Part of Shadow Shot Sunday 2:

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    • This chap loved having his photo taken and would pose all over the place never in a normal pose. There isn’t any story other than I saw the shadows, saw his pose and thought good title. I’m hopeless at titling my pieces. I think it is one of the most important parts and yet mine are fairly boring, predictable and usually just the word of the prompt. This I thought was good because he was in a stick up pose, I was taking a camera shot, a nice bit of ambiguity that could hook.
      It was taken at our accomodation in Vanuatu.

    A safe way to shoot. But, the big question is, why isn’t anyone in that wonderful ocean?

    I’m glad this is in Australia, Irene. Otherwise you would be inundated with people from Black Lives Matter and the Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.movement. We’ve become so sensitized that even this simple pose has serious overtones.
