IN THIS COLLECTION taken post ANZAC DAY (APRIL 26), Misha with family in tow trekked to the city to find these images that brought back poignant memories of the past. Here, she shows you what was POPULAR the world over in signifying the day. The Poppies Of Flanders have become significant in helping us reflect on the days and the sacrifices. Add to Misha’s joy by making a POST’s Of PRAISE. She deserves them.


Part 2.

Misha_Anzac2015-5ANZPM15-MR(2)10. A poignant moment in time is captured in this unusual sign fixed to a wall, and reminds us of the day one hundred years ago. Now, like the centenary consigned to the past. Misha_Anzac2015-14 ANZPM15-MR(2)11.  Crowds gather on a damp Melbourne day and gaze upon a field of poppies, marking the place in the world with a timely scape of the city, and the iconic Flinders St station looking over all. Well shot. Misha_Anzac2015-11ANZPM15-MR(2)12. An imaginative and creative image by Misha, who would have had to get down and dirty to capture it. The background of the shot being so grey, and desolate providing an apt background to bring out the vibrant color. Note, how the foreground flowers are out of focus, becoming clearer as the camera reaches deeper into the image – and they come into focus. Then, drop out again in the back. Misha_Anzac2015-12 ANZPM15-MR(2)13. Crafted from metal, this poppy glistens in the rain with could be tears for the fallen. Finding a story for the image provides another dimension for the viewer to take in. Misha worked hard for all of these. Misha_Anzac2015-1ANZPM15-MR(2)14. WOW – what a dramatically lit shot! An image that stops you in your tracks, and takes your breath away. This is what photography is all about, and from one so young. What else can we say? It’s up to you to make a POST Of PRAISE to lift her day. Go For It! Misha_Anzac2015-19ANZPM15-MR(2)15. Taken from the opposite direction looking to the abstract buildings of Federation Square brings the image into today, and reflecting the modern generations. Here’s something to reflect on. How do you think the diggers would react to the Melbourne and world of today?  Misha_Anzac2015-16ANZPM15-MR(2)16. Another image reflecting the modern era with the carpeted flower steps drawing our eye to the towering monster EUREKA., another unmistakable Melbourne image. Even like the bottom border of rain-soaked tiles. I imagine shouting Eureka meaning; “I have found it”!

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.
