Brisbane River Festival 2013

We went to see the laser show at the Brisbane River Festival 2013 the other night. The laser show is repeated several times every night and is spectacular.

Brisbane City from South Bank as part of my present masthead

The laser show is very colourful

The "screen' is set up on a pontoon on the river

A light show is also installed in front of the Performing Arts Complex

Here is a short video of the Laser Show

Art In Aviation

Our Camera Club was invited to participate in the Art In Aviation Event organised by the Gold Coast Sports Flying Association and held at Heck Field Airstrip at Jacobs Well, south of Brisbane.

 The planes arrived at around 9 o'clock and members were ready for them.

Don't ask me makes and models of these planes, I wouldn't know.

One of the reporters from the Sports Pilot Magazine approached me with a request. He is writing an article about the following aircraft. He had his 11 year old son with him. His request, 'Can you please take a shot of this plane with my son in it and make it look like they are flying? But he must not look 11 years old. We would like to use it on the cover of the next magazine issue with my article.'

The Blogger had the same idea

No problem at all.

In October, they are holding an Open Day, where we can all display our photos and hopefully win a prize. That'll cut me out, but we have some excellent snappers in our midst, so hopefully one of them will take first prize.
