In Situ...
IMG_1945.JPG

`In Situ', it sounds like something muttered by a grizzled English detective in a small village where everyone dies. (Did they not think to look more closely at the investigating detectives?)

In this case it's one of my artworks I've had printed and framed so you can get a good idea as to how it will look.  This is an Instagram image of a farmhouse I took one night while stopped at road works on my way home after visiting my father in hospital. 

I don't know - I just really like this image. I like the darkness. It's a low light Instagram image that's been enlarged so it has an impressionist feel I like that rewards the viewer with a pleasing image of mystery and the potential for crime. If Australian houses had basements then this place has one you may not return from visiting. Or alternatively it could be where Kevin Spacey has gone to ground.

It's been printed on a satin finish, pearlescent paper. The good thick stuff. Like my brain... but thicker.

Newcastle Police employ new tactics on war on crime

In somewhat heroic efforts to further personal clerical duties, police in Newcastle have hit upon a method of identifying potential Serial Killers in the local area.

Sgt, Const Gerb Hulffn of the Newcastle Domestic Duties Squad today told the Newcastle Herald through an interpreter, that they will be going door to door throughout the city to identify the quiet loners in the area. "We now know that serial killers are not the single mothers, young folk and homeless vagrants we normally associate with this sort of crime." He said. "They are a cunning enemy and try not to draw attention to themselves."

Encouraged to go further by his sniggering associates he went on to say, "We encourage anyone who has a neighbour who is polite, well mannered, keeps to themselves and plays any sort of board game, to come forward and point them out to us.  

We need to arrest these perverts before they begin molesting and killing pretty, nubile, young women for their soft, tanned skin to wear and knitting their pubic hair into interesting handy crafts to sell at local markets."

Sgt Hulffn then held up a so called `Dream Catcher' popular with the young folk, as an example of the sort of objects they were looking for. On passing it around to other members of his elite squad to examine and gently smell, he praised the Newcastle Herald for their clearly worded Saturday Form Guide. "I find the yellow paper used in the fold out section particularly soothing to my eyes." He said.
