When we arrived back from Townsville we loaded up the camper, or "Tardis" as we have nicknamed it, and on Monday last week we booked into the Tropic Breeze Caravan Park for the week. It was the best thing I could have done. Not only was I within walking distance of most events to be photographed, but I also had somewhere to go and "veg out" in between events. Of course not having to drive up and down the range was also a bonus. Philip drove down for a couple of nights to help with the "housekeeping" of the Tardis.....emptying the grey water tank.......emptying the toilet cassette...... refilling the water tank.
I rostered myself on for just about every event at Carnivale (plus a few more) and I am so pleased that I did. I was lucky enough to have our photography club mentor all to myself at a couple of functions and the knowledge I received from him was invaluable. A lot of the photography was people shots so I really had to step out of my comfort zone to ask people if they would mind being photographed for Carnivale. I think I only received one rejection. Most folks love having their photo taken.
I am home now, tired and weary, but very grateful for the opportunity that our club had of being official photographers for Port Douglas Carnival 2015.
