World Cancer Day

 

Sunday, 4th February was World Cancer Day and Brisbane joined other major cities across the globe to paint the world orange and blue and what a wonderful display it was. My photo, shot for ICON Group, made the header and top of the page of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and the Landmark Lighting Report.  What an honour! Other submissions included the Empire State Building; Niagara Falls; Petra, Jordan; Italy; Switzerland and many more.

There were other photographers about as people occupied picnic tables and blankets at Wilson’s Outlook; a magnificent spot to enjoy dinner with a view. A black curtain languished behind the city buildings and I thought we’d get a downpour but the clouds eventually lifted, and once again the Story Bridge shone brightly sending a positive message to the world.

It was a fun shoot and an absolute privilege to be a part of this great worldwide event. Visit the UICC page and see all the World Cancer Day photos here

The Gateway Bridge Revisited

I wasn’t quite happy with my previous Gateway Bridge post so I returned to try to improve my results. It’s a different spot and it was a clear night. Here they are.
The streak you see in the sky is a plane coming in for a landing and the streak on the water is a boat.

The Gold Coast

These photos were taken from the back river side of Surfers Paradise on a beautiful crisp night.I managed to catch a lit up gondola as it passed us.
