I recently had the opportunity to grab a media pass for the National Folk Festival in Canberra, Australia – how could I turn it down? Not only was the variety and scope of the live music amazing, there was heaps of visual interest to photograph, including two of my favourite topics – street performers and dancers (so stayed tuned for pictures of those). Still, when looking for a picture to post today, I couldn’t go past this shot, of a young boy contributing to the community Labyrinth created in the festival’s central park.
Exhibition artworks reflect in one another while the shadow of a security guard passes by.
A Flamenco dancer (or a Sturt’s Desert Pea) swirls its skirts.
My christmas present to myself was a shiny new macro lens (Tamron 90mm). Today I took it for a test drive at the Australian National Botanic Gardens and put it through its paces. Not bad :)
Another Poppy from the series of Floriade macro abstracts.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted more of the Floriade abstract macro series, so here’s another Poppy picture. This was shot looking up from underneath, with the sun illuminating the petals from within.
