Junction Art Festival, Part 3!

The last event I went to was the Junction Arts Festival dog show and is the last in this series of post.  This is the first dog show I've ever been to, and it was hilarious. The cutest dog was judged by the cheering from audience, as well as a category for the most disobedient dog. Excellent MCing too and we all got so involved. It was as much about the owners as it was about their pets.

Why can't all dog shows be like this?

Thanks again To Chris Crerar and the Junction Arts Festival for making Photo Mob possible. I really hope to see it again next year, and that a new group of budding photographers will undergo this intense, adrenaline driven experience.

My only wish was that I had taken more photos of the food, and have stuck closer to the brief. During one of our mad rushes between events and hanging up photos, Chris said that photography is a constant disappointment -- that you can always do something better. Maybe that's why, just like gambling, photography is so addictive. For those rare few photos that works, and a lifetime of disappointment. Photography is not for the faint hearted! I should just stick to washing dishes and frying doughnuts.

Junction Art Festival, Part 2!

More photos from the festival. Watch Me Fall was a great act to watch. I got to go inside the Handle Bar (for those who don't know, it's a bikie's bar)! If you get a chance to see Action Hero's Watch Me Fall, I would highly recommend it.

Junction Art Festival

I'm spending a bit of time up in Launceston for the Junction Art Festival. I'm pretty jealous of Launceston for having such a great festival. Despite being its third year, it's the first time I've heard of it. If you can make it up north of the state this weekend, I would highly recommend checking out En Route.

This is an image heavy post, since I'm with the photo mob, taking snapping it up under the guidance of local photographer, Chris Crerar. Here's some of the photos so far.  It's heaps of fun, even though I'm sleeping in a old damp house and I'm so very tired.
