June 2005, Mc Murdo Station, Midday. But the sun has gone to sleep & we wont see it till around the end of August if the weather permits. They have to change the flag around 4 times a winter; the flag beats itself to death with the constant wind. At the end of the winter season the last flag is raffled off to the winter-over staff. I didn’t get it but I got the best life experience spending the winter on the ICE. Winter on the driest, highest, windiest & the coldest continent on the world was the best experience of my life, it changed my outlook on life more than one could imagine.
I have heaps of images that I have keep till I thought that I had the skill to do something with them. I think maybe the time has come?
