A stalwart in every way, the grand lady passed away on Wednesday night (Dec 5). Aged 103, and only 3 months short of her 104th year.Her work for charity and the underprivileged, the arts, and many other organizations will be the legacy she has left. Her dedication and commitment will be a source to all who knew and worked with her.

Using imagination and creative thinking this SUPER SHOT image gives you an idea of the wide open spaces that surround the maginificent home.

The FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras from Nepean school had the pleasure of spending a pleasant day in the grounds and gardens of her magnificent home, photographing and working in the beautiful relaxed atmosphere on the fringe of Melbourne’s eastern suburbs at Langwarrin. I am sure that the day will be one that they will remember for the rest of their lives, especially when they look back on their SUPER SHOTS. Vale Dame Elisabeth, and thank you for a wonderful opportunity.

You can see more of the SUPER SHOTS taken on this special day, and now dedicated to her memory. Check November 29. 2011. And the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras invite you to POST A CONDOLENCE message here.

About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.
