Lunch time from the air

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

SPEARWOOD ae­rial pho­tog­ra­pher Pe­taAnne North is used to cap­tur­ing mo­ments usu­ally re­served for birds of the sky.

Hang­ing out the doors of an air­craft, while strapped in of course, she has shot ev­ery­thing from con­struc­tion sites, big prop­erty de­vel­op­ments, spe­cial events and nat­u­ral land­marks.

It is that method of pho­tog­ra­phy that of­fered her a rare glimpse of a Spearwood mar­ket gar­den ear­lier this year.

From the sky, she cap­tured a sta­tion­ary trac­tor, with foot­prints lead­ing away.

Look­ing at her watch, she re­alised it was 1pm; time for lunch.

“I love the ae­rial per­spec­tive and being able to cap­ture a mo­ment in time,” she said.

“When I saw the trac­tor and the foot­steps I thought it looked amaz­ing. The foot­steps were re­ally fas­ci­nat­ing.

“I looked at my watch and thought ‘that’s where they’ve gone, to lunch’.”
