CHELSEA DISCOVERS A WHITE NIGHT WONDERLAND

Standard

ffwhiten14-ck10IT PROVED TO BE A NIGHT OF MYSTICAL LIGHTS AS MELBOURNE SHONE FOR IT’S SECOND WHITE NIGHT FESTIVAL. HALF A MILLION PEOPLE FLOCKED TO THE CITY AND ITS STREETS AND LANEWAYS, BOULEVARDES AND OTHER PLACES. CHELSEA PACKED HER BAG WITH HER CAMERA AND LOADS OF IMAGINATION JOINING THE THRONG TO FIND THIS COLLECTION TO SHARE AND ADMIRE.

TOP LEFT. Is it a crown of thorns, or a gas ring flame? No matter it was another light installation high above the city skyline having looker’s stretching their necks to work it out.

Looking like a storm about to break the Skyscrapers and reflection on the river looking dark and foreboding.

SWITCHED ON and the image changes to wonderful reflections and colour of the night appears removing the gloom and stimulating the eye.

Then we gaze upon the iconic Flinders Street station, what you to be Melbourne’s favourite meeting place with a new face to welcome revellers to the WHITE NIGHT.

Hordes of people gather on the lawns and forecourt of the Melbourne City library absorbed by the light show transforming the building into what could be thought of as a scene from Harry Potter – or some other weird and wonderful wonderland.

Who says being out of focus doesn’t work. Well, most times is doesn’t. But in this shot, Chelsea pushed the boundaries and created this surreal image with people almost merging into each other. What do you think?

The InSPIRED lights of Hamer hall reach up into the darkening night sky towering hundreds of metres and making a beacon for the festival to be seen by many of Melbourne’s suburbs. Oh, what a night it was!

MAKE CHELSEA’S DAY (NIGHT) AND SEND A POST OF PRAISE TO HER – THATS ONE WAY OF INSPIRING TO GO & LOOK FOR MORE GREAT IMAGES.

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.

  1. Great Shots. I missed White Night, but your phoos caught a lot of the atmosphere. My favourite is the State Library, a total transformation. Thanks, Chelsea
