PASSERS-BY STOP OFF TO VIEW THE ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO GARDEN.

Standard

Day three is about to dawn with the cooler weather and rain as promised. That won’t dampen the spirit of garden show-goers that’s to be sure. However, inside the Exhibition Buildings the outside will be of no concern with so  much to see. And, a whole day to go for the skies to clear in time for the Twilight session tonight.DSCN1170[1]

With only hours go one day before the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show opens the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras empty space transposes from a bare empty space to the magnificent ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION displaying the magnificent SUPER SHOTS and CHOICES for the ROCKLEY AWARDS.

Then with opening day the exhibition becomes a hive of activity with visitors coming from all states and all parts of the country. They show their enthusiasm and support for the FF Kids With Cameras by purchasing the KIDzPIKz Rockley greeting cards and making their choices in the POP PIKz POLL. This year in the early days FF has seen a number of Kids With Cameras showing interest in  fun foto workshops and submitting images for the 2017 collection.

These two images (above) by Lauren Puli and the one below by Stacey Finck were selected as SUPER SHOT CHOICES and have also been reproduced as KIDzPIKz ROCKLEY greeting cards. FOCUS FORCE thinks this will create a couple more puffed chests. Congratulations to both these Kids With Cameras. Now, we work towards finding the last two from the POP PIKz POLL.

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.
