On Sunday 29th March, I photographed the Weerama Festival held in Watton St, Werribee with Neil, Lee, Di, Kathryn and Belinda. Weerama consists of colourful multicultural groups, community floats, street performers, local schools and roving entertainers, celebrating the multiculturalism of the city of Wyndham.
I’ve split these up into 3 albums, Parade, People and Performers

Tonight (25th March 2009) at the Official Opening of the Weerama Festival, I was awarded 1st & 3rd prizes in the Ted’s Camera Stores Photographic Competition 2009 Open Category for the Weerama Festival (Werribee Community Festival) held by the City of Wyndham.
The competition was for photographs taken in the last 12 months which showcased the City of Wyndham, capturing and celebrating the Municipality’s diverse landscape, seascape and character.
I entered two of my photos. “Unknown” was awarded 1st place and “A Brief History of Time” got 3rd place.
“Unknown” – Campbells Cove, Werribee South beach at dawn
A Brief History Of Time – Werribee River at sunset
In the week leading up to the Formula 1 in Melbourne, the F1 teams came to Federation Square and the grid girls and fans were out in force.
Here’s a few shots from the event.
An amazing sunset at the blowhole on the Flinders coastline, Victoria.
Got nice and wet, and the drive home was not pleasant in my saturated clothes, but worth it.
It finally rained in Victoria, although, it happened over most of the airshow weekend.
I was lucky enough to catch a few shots with some blue sky, and contrasting stormy skies.
While waiting for some action in the outer (cheap seats) of the 2009 Avalon Airshow, we watched the storm pass over the bay.
Neil, Lisa, Campbell and I were there to catch some shots of the amazing machines of the sky this afternoon.
I photographed the Melbourne Moomba Parade and wandered down to the banks of the Yarra River where the carnival is held with my dad today.
Each float in the Moomba Parade represents the cultural diversity of the Melbourne community, plenty of colour, character and fun.
