Lily got in front of the camera, and was happy to pose with hers amongst the brilliant blooms on show for the throngs of visitors on the first day of the event.

DSCN2083A tender 4 years old, she was preparing to grow another year a few days later when she celebrated her fifth birthday. She was only to eager to smile for the camera, and FOCUS FORCE bets there were even more, and bigger ones a few days later. We wonder if she managed to find any Super Shots amongst the flowers. FOCUS FORCE wishes the Kids With A Camera a belated birthday and hopes she had a great day. We’re sure she did!

DSCN2073  A VIEWPOINT FOUND in the Laurel Bank gardens where so many flowers had been patiently and perfectly planted for the visitors to admire. FOCUS FORCE was on a mission to find locations where hopefully the discs will be planted in time for next years carnival, and then inspire local and other Kids With Cameras to go looking for SUPER SHOTS. Those who know Laurel bank will know the place where this VIEW POINT was located. Schools will be invited to lead up workshops prior to next years event. SUPER SHOTS will be chosen and the best included in the next FOCUS FORCE ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION at the MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW. As a practice run a Toowoomba school has been invited to place a VIEWPOINT amongst its garden beds and the Kids With Cameras show us their best shots to be included in the 2015 exhibition. Wonder which school? Take a closer look at the name for a hint!

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.
