By the mid 1950s, Moore had graduated away from the traditional medium format camera and his photographs appeared in the elongated 35 mm shape. After some months in London, Moore had written to Max Dupain about his enthusiasm for the new 35 mm camera: Have you experienced the delights of this somewhat playful instrument, the 35 mm camera? I feel so free and spontaneous handling it.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
