rays of reflection by ssilence

For starters, great work! Its an amazing shot! I'm always told by other photographers to put the main subject of interest in one of the...

Hey

Not much has happened since my last post. not personally anyway.

Still trying to get my photo business up and running, still working at the electronics store, and still single!

Something that did happening that is worth mentioning is i participated (i.e wandered into!) a demonstration of No Confidence in the Abott Government.

The current Abott Government is probably best associated to what the 50's was probably like. Homosexuals have no marriage rights, women are more or less household items, the environment can kiss industry's polluted arse and anyone running from a foreign conflict to seek asylum will be meet with hostility!

So yeah, not exactly what voters were looking for.

Anyway the protest.

It was dubbed the March in March, and was held in cities across the country. But in Toowoomba, it wasn't massive. My home town being what it is, (home to slack, work shy bogans who either shout at literally everyone/thing or drink heavily or both!) only around 100-200 people came out to show vocal support for the nation wide movement.

I got a few decent shots and emailed them to the local paper as well as the March in March Facebook page, so it wasn't a loss.

It was also good to see that people in my town, however few, would physically stand up at shout back up at the Government shouting down.

If there is one negative thing I will point out, its that I didn't see many people in my age bracket, that is the 14-25 age bracket. If this world is going to change, its going to take more than some retirees with placards to do it.

I'm part of the generation that will take over whats left of this hand-me-down world after the current one is done playing with it. And I for one want to keep the damage to a minimum.

Going back to photos; the ones I've taken of this protest are more newspapery ones and not really for this page. But I'll endeavor to get more done before my next post.

Maybe I'll even write something. Miracles can happen!

Ok, later

I've been interested in Photography since I was 13, and I've decided that I want to try make a career out of it. I have worked as a freelancer for a couple of local businesses, and even a major newspaper. I mostly shoot public events, but also portraits and nature/landscape shots.
