Vegemite Vee Dub

My tribute to Peter Browne's quirky art.

Arriving early at his Silverton gallery, to avoid tourists in the frame, I was disappointed by the overcast conditions, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Setting the camera on a tripod, I engaged the self-timer and positioned myself to the right with a single flash to simulate low angled sunlight on the Volkswagen beetle. After cloning out an unwanted powerline, I retrieved appropriate supporting imagery from my photo database: Strzelecki Desert galahs and corellas; a Walgett emu; a Tibooburra magpie; and a raven from Newcastle.

Why the Vegemite jar? Browne used it as a pigment to paint his caricature emus on the Vee Dub.
