Womadelaide 2012

What  a great weekend; so many interesting and exciting performers! Over the space of three and a half days I watched in excess of 30 performances; a bit of a marathon but so enjoyable. Even the weather this year was perfect; upper 20's and fine.

This shot was taken on the final night; on stage 1 (of 7) - Johnny Clegg from South Africa.

Abc Wednesdays - H for Hindmarsh Island Bridge

Hindmarsh Island is an island across the River Murray from Goolwa. This bridge was opened in 2001 after a decade of controversy. The bridge replaced a cable ferry, thus providing easier access to the island. There had been widespread opposition to the builing of the bridge from Indigenous Australian leaders, environmental groups and some local residents.
