Art and Architecture in Canberra

My (Perri’s) recent trip to Canberra gave me a rare opportunity to aim my lens at some really interesting architecture and public art. Days were a bit grey but good for wandering around places I had never been or hadn’t visited for decades. I was fairly pleased with these images as a group.

Morning at Crams Farm

Yesterday we had a barbecue breakfast at Crams Farm, a beautiful local secret location for all sorts of activities. Not only is it very picturesque it also has all sorts of wonderful facilities like under cover areas as well as barbecues (free, just press a button and away you go) and heaps of room for almost any activity. We had invited past photographic workshop participants and families for an informal, fun breakfast. The first attempt had to postponed due to far too much rain in February.
This one was attended by a couple of enthusiastic families and we had a great time enjoying the beautiful morning as the sun rose, the mist shimmied around and the waterbirds woke to an other magnificent day in paradise - oh what a beautiful day! We arrived a little after 6:30am to try to catch the sunrise and do a time-lapse series, to create a small movie: Dawn Reflection with Mount Warning. The others also arrived early to try to catch the beautiful sunrise then we enjoyed breakfast accompanied by the resident kookaburras and butcher birds.
Michelle’s girls seemed keen to model for the photographers, so after breakfast we walked through the long wet grass to some old wooden fences where the girls perched themselves. The background became beautifully moody as dark clouds and rain quickly passed through. Here are some of our favourite photos from the morning.
