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

Sunset Over the Captain Cook Bridge

I almost didn’t go for my planned shoot after work this afternoon because of the cloud cover but I’m glad I did. It looked like rain was going to set in but for a short time the clouds parted for this glorious sunset over the Captain Cook Bridge. Within an hour it it was blue. Nature certainly likes to show off 🙂
