Skyfire XXI

Skyfire is a Canberra tradition, held by the banks of Lake Burley Griffin. The local radio station, 104.7, holds this excellent fireworks display once a year. I love going, but normally the weather is drizzly and you have to sit around for hours if you want to get there early enough to get a good spot. This year the weather was perfect! I took my camera (naturally) and was very excited about the prospect of photographing fireworks. Here are the results of my attempts :-)

Creative Photography Swap

I recently joined this great site called Swap-bot. Everyone shoud be a member. Here is my creative photography swap.

 Welcome swappers!!

1) My emotions seem to echo those of the people I photograph. . "Whether it is photography, assemblage art or filmmaking, my work is to see beneath the surface. - Christophe Agou

2) Like every other means of expression, photography, if it is to be utterly honest and direct, should be related to the life of the times - the pulse of today....The photograph...to merit serious consideration, must be directly connected with the world we live in. - Berenice Abbot

3)A photograph can be as striking and as haunting as a great painting or a fine poem.  Anonymous - Handbook annual, 1988.

4)It's not the camera, but who's behind the camera. - Anonymous

5)Photography is like a meditation for me. It is such a concentrated moment. - Stephanie Torbert
