Aspiring Kids With Camera Chelsea Kincade takes us down a path into history, and when the seafarers of the olde worlde took pride of place as the means to travel the seven seas. A  distant cry from the luxury liners of today, each time they weighed anchor and cast off, the lives of all on board were challenged more than you could have imagined. Travelling the world under the power of the mighty sails, they were at the mercy of the elements. Here Chelsea has shown us in creative detail just some what this great event was about as they gathered in Melbourne at Hobsons Bay.


TSCK1. A SHIP OF THE NIGHT , the British tall ship LORD NELSON  creates an impressivc sight as she waits patiently for the order to set sail. A vision of the past against the Melbourne night scape conjures up images of days gone by.

ROPES AND ANGLES in this collection show you aspects of a olden sea voyager that take the photographers eye. While the two end shots show different concepts of the weekends events, the far left captures some of the atmosphere and revelry the many thousands who walked the wharf to gaze on the travelers of a bygone era were treated to.. On the right,, one of the finely built wooden vessels prepares for a cruise on the bay.


TSCK7.A dramatic image of the bow of the EUROPA with the ropes and chains holding her still take your eye along the line to the main focus of the shot. Caught well in  focus, it captures the detail of the foreground superbly.

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.
