After weeks of planning and rejection, a change in plans and running behind time, and self imposed delays – a chance meeting became a highlight of the day with Melbourne’s Lord Mayor, Robert Doyle.

Arriving on location at the Melbourne Town Hall close to the scheduled time, the Kids With Cameras involved in the FOCUS FORCE CITY of CONTRASTS foto workshop overstayed their time. Busying themselves finding images of the building, and others of flowers they looked for their SUPER SHOTS for this special project. FF KWC Project Coordinator Phillip noticed a car come out from the gates, and park on the street. Anticipating the possibility of the LM appearing the wait began.
This went longer than could be afforded, and eventually the driver advised that he would not be out for another 20 plus minutes. It was only a short walk to our next location, so after a short discussion with parents, we moved on and if finished in time would return. That’s what they did, and rushed back after completing another highlight for the day. Again, we waited, and now the KWC were getting more than hungry for their SUPER SHOT. Eventually nearly 45 minutes later the man appeared. A brief introduction to the kids with cameras and their purpose for the day saw him respond positively, and although running late, Councillor Doyle made these avid young photographers day not only posing for them but ensuring that each of them had a shot of themselves with the man himself. SERENDIPITY!
In the coming days we will tell you more of the serendipity hanging around this project, suggesting that is meant to happen no matter what!
It goes with out saying that the Kids With Cameras were chuffed for their photo op, and hope that the Lord Mayor will follow through with his invitation for him to make his CHOICE for his favourite of the SUPER SHOTS to be submitted for the CITY of CONTRASTS foto shoot. Madeleine Puli, Jourdan Kovetski, Neave Leyden and Matthew Borys headed out off the city after what had been a long, and for them what had been exhausting but exhilarating day.
It was a hectic day commencing around 9.30 am with a brief on the day, then HARVEY NORMAN QV franchisee Con Georgiades meeting the giving them inspiring words and them presenting them with FREE PRINT VOUCHERS. A good start to the day for the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras as they headed out on their mission full of unexpected adventures.
