NEAVE MAKES IT A “RUSH HOUR” TO FIND HER SUPER SHOT SUBMISSIONS FOR THE CITY OF CONTRASTS.

Standard

Young NEAVE hails from Bomber land not far from Essendon’s Windy Hill, and also close to what used to be Melbourne’s original international airport. The aspiring 8 year on lass was on a mission to find her SUPER SHOT submissions before rushing off for another test of her skills. The last of the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras who put their hands up after becoming involved as a result of the  ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO CAMERA CHALLENGE at the Garden Show, she shows what she is made of here. She’ll be thrilled to read your POSTS of PRAISE too!

714NL7 When you think of yellow, you think of cabs, and when you think of yellow cabs you think of New York. How great this shot would have been had it had a taxi in it’s reflection.

COC714NL8

714NL8.An image that captures the features of the sculpture rather than the whole look. Here just focusing on the features of the hoof, leg and chest of the enormous beast. And, somewhere in there is pigeon. Luckily the hoof is going nowhere and the bird will live to see another day.

714NL5.All the shapes and angles of modern archcitecture are caught in this pic of a city high rise. The building is home to another contrast. This time people of different nationalities of many countries around the world.

714NL.11. In this shot vying for  SUPER SHOT status the camera of Neave takes you past the mask, to the doorway and beyond into the sumptuous interior of Tiffany and the gleaming showcases displaying the best money can buy in fine jewellery.

714NL11. The towering tower of the clock high above the Melbourne Town hall where many people hurry every day glancing up to check their time as they rush to their next appointment or work.

COC714NL10

714NL10. Bikes took Neaves eye too as they waited patiently for their owners to return at the end of the day, and head for home. The wo in the corner stand in contrast to the grey stone wall. Below, a framed one with the seat being using to create the effect and slats on the seat taking the eye in the direction of the bike. 714NL12

COC714NL13

714NL.13. Two buildings crammed between two taller ones, show the contrasts in design periods between all four. Each illustrating a different vision, and each a proud achievement in making the CITY of CONTRASTS, the unique place that the heart of Melbourne is.

WRITE A POST of PRAISE choosing two of the images you see each day that you consider would make a picture postcard view of Melbourne to be reproduced as a KIDzPIKz postcard. The high scorers will then be considered for the collection which FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP AMBASSADOR Madeleine Puli will pack into her luggage to hand out to New York Kids With Cameras. Just write the image numbers in your post and we’ll do the rest.

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. Neave’s shot 714NL8. I love this image. The strong legs of the horse, the bird, and the leafy green background. I think this shot says a lot about Melbourne, our strong Art Culture, or Leafy Green spaces and our love of nature. Great shot Neave!

  2. I do love Neave’s 714 NL.11. It gives the impression of the face of a comet speeding towards towards you.

    The framing of bicycles within the frame of the arms of a seat frame could be an uninteded comment on the sedentary nature of our society ( keeping in mind that this is the opinion of an over weight , and very proud grand pa.

  3. Neave, your photos are amazing!!! 714NL12 is No.1 on my favourites because I like how you thought creatively and using the bench seat as the frame. My second favourite photo is 714NL.13 and I like it because it has great contrast in the different bulidings. Keep up the great work!!
