2019 ANZAC Dawn Service at Currumbin Beach

Joseph has asked that we share this video with you of his experience attending this event.

I was fortunate to attend the ANZAC Dawn Service held at Currumbin Beach, Qld on the 25/4/2019 with my family at 4:30am.

Upon arriving at the beach, space was at a premium. I managed to find a plot a short distance from a large screen. There was no room to plant a tripod, plus, the stability of the tripod on the sand it gave me headaches.

Greg Cromie: Street Photography in Japan

Greg Cromie was awesome, his work is quite the inspiration for us to plan our next trip as Greg himself is doing. Our current state of lockdown while the world battles the COVID-19 virus makes it seem like we may never travel again. And as Greg pointed out, in reality, it may well be a year or two at least before we see life return to any sort of pre-COVID normal.

Judging: 6th Competition: Open & Set Subject: People Portraits
