When coming home becomes the next adventure

National LibraryNormally, coming home is the end of an adventure. You’ve had a great time exploring the world and now, reality has called you back. Bugger. It’s when real life starts to sink back in.

This week has been a “rest” (less full on) week. I had enough time to reflect on what the rest of my year is going to look like. Real life… I mused to myself. What does that even look like?

National Multicultural Festival 2011 – Canberra

This year, the National Multicultural Festival was held between February 11-13 and what fun it was! I tried some Russian and Indian food along with a Norwegian beer that tasted very stouty for a golden looking beer.

Richard and I had a great time capturing a few photographs of the event.

I enjoy how Richard portrays the event primarily though the performances. Whist my photographs are more of the people that were there.

With my trip coming up, I’ve had to sell a lot of gear and one of the things I parted with was my Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens which I loved for these types of events. I made do with my EF 24-105 f/4L IS and the results were great. Another piece of gear I’ve parted with is my 580EX II flash so quite a few of these photos were shot ISO 3200 upwards.

It just goes to show that no matter what gear you have, getting great photos is all about getting out there with what you have!
