MATTHEW WANDERS THROUGH THE WONDERS OF CAMBODIA.

Standard

Roads, rivers, ruins and reflections could be the theme for this collection from Matthew Borys who embarked on a school trip with fellow classmates from Mentone Grammar in August this year. These selected to be the first 5 in the four part series shows you just what a clever eye this young man has. Today, and each Wednesday it will be FOCUS FORCE’S pleasure to bring you more from his album exploring and capturing images that will take your breath away. Once again, enjoy the journey. And, once more don’t be shy to leave a POST Of PRAISE.wwcmd14-mb17

WWCMD14-MB17. The ideal shot to start the journey with the road acting as a leading line taking eye to the building at the end. Everything in this shot is well placed, and captivating to the eye. What an experience, and then, to have the eye to capture it like this. The shadow on the left could represent the viewers about to take the walk. Certainly ,worthy of a POST Of PRAISE

WWCMD14-MB3 Our first pic that captures reflections resting on peaceful waters, not a ripple to be seen. Providing the ideal situation for a mirror image. Again, everything well positioned to make a pleasing composition.

 WWCMD14-MB14. What a magical place for a photographer to find themselves lost in. So many photo ops to boggle the mind like this including the aspects of the theme; reflections. The ancient Ankor Wat library, not quite such a ruin, but a testament to the craftsmanship of it’s builders. Spend some time reflecting on a POST Of PRAISE

WWCMD14-MB10. It’s amazing how the rubble of ruins can be so appealing, and inspiring to the viewers. Here, gazing over the remains of  a temple which was once a magnificent building tells its own story of the ravages of time.

WWCMD14-MB20. Day ends as dusk falls gives us the perfect image to close the first edition of Matthews showcase of his trip. The fading light as the sun sets silhouetting the buildings against the sky and in reflections on the waters.   Would you consider this as worthy of a POST Of PRAISE

Great photos Matthew and I look forward to reading about your experience and seeing more in the coming weeks. My favourite shot so far is WWCMD14-MB20 – the sunset and silhouette look amazing. The colour of the background against the blackness of the building is beautiful.Well done. Cheryl K.

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.
