Children, Enlighten Festival, Canberra, Australia

Canberra’s Enlighten Festival lights up the public buildings of the city with projected artworks and bright patterns, but these children were more interested in playing in front of the giant spotlights set up to sweep across the sky.

Creating the National Folk Festival Yarn Labyrinth, Canberra, Australia

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.
