Why Snapshot?

To my mind there is a vast difference between a photograph and a snapshot.
A photograph is made, the photographer has a vision for the image in mind and sets about creating it. Waiting for the right light or weather conditions and often visiting the scene several times to get it just right.
A snapshot on the other hand is taken as the opportunity arises, often with minimal thought. It is what we do on holiday, when out with family, it aids us in remembering those moments long past.
Having said that, many snapshots are perfect, just like the postcard, whilst some photographs, despite the time and effort, look like a hurried snapshot.
I take mainly snapshots, but occasionally, I get a beautiful photograph.

Festivale 2015

Northern Tasmanias premier food and wine / beer / cider event was held over the weekend of February 13 - 15. We went on the Friday and had a good feed consisting of lamb rolls with a blueberry chutney on a bed of red cabbage slaw, venison dumplings and a seafood paella. This was followed with or accompanied by locally brewed ale, cider and wine as well as a fantastic vanilla bean or mango ice cream.

Entertainment consisted of numerous buskers, street artists and a few bands. The main attraction for Friday was Mental As Anything. Greedy Smith, Martin Plaza and the boys gave their all in a fantastic set to end the evening.
