Bastille Day French Festival

by on Jul.17, 2019, under Outings

Once again our intrepid WCC photographers braved the unpredictable Melbourne weather to attend an outing. This month we attended the Bastille Day French Festival in the Atrium of Federation Square in the city on Saturday 13th July 2019.

Despite predictions of dire weather conditions, good fortune was on our side. Federation Square possessed the only patch of blue sky in Melbourne, during the morning and early afternoon.

We met up in a café in the Atrium which allowed us to plan independent activities and browse the many and varied French flavoured market stalls. Over the morning we regrouped for particular events like the ‘l’escrime’ (fencing) demonstrations and the French Can Can! (ooooh la la!)

Helen Warnod - L'escrime

Phill Harris - CanCan - CanDo

We enjoyed our lunch purchased the food stalls of our choice and sat together in Deakin Edge theatre, chatting and listening to French live band ‘Vive la Différence’.

View our photographs of this exciting event in our outings gallery.

Hope to see you at our next outing in August!

Wintry walk in St Kilda

by on Jun.20, 2019, under Outings

As our intrepid WCC photographers arrived for our monthly outing, St Kilda decided to produce a deluge! Thankfully our meetup point was at a café! We huddled up under the awning, so we made the most of it and sat sipping hot coffees and chatting. On cue, the clouds cleared for our planned departure time of 3:00pm!

We numbered twelve and were pleased to welcome along newer members Glen and Amanda on the day.

The light was marvelous and fluffy clouds produced photo-worthy scenes and opportunities for landscape and street photography. We strolled along the waterside photographing various points of interest from Luna Park to the St. Kilda Marina Seaside Light then along the bay trail past Catani Bridge towards St. Kilda pier.

We installed ourselves on the St. Kilda Pier near the marina in time to capture the sunset at 5:07pm and a few city light on the bay before wandering back to our cars. A great day!

Hope to see you there!

Autumnal colours did not disappoint

by on May.22, 2019, under Outings

14 participants attended the outing to the Alfred Nicholas Gardens on the morning of 19th May. It was lovely to welcome a new member and guests who joined us on the day!

Trace O'Rourke - Autumn Colour Jen Fawkes - The Conversation Trace O'Rourke - Maple Leaf

The autumnal colours did not disappoint and the weather was perfect for rambling through the vast hillside gardens. Whist agreeable, the perfect weather brought with it a challenging light environment in the shaded forest areas which kept us all on our toes!

After a hour or so, we wended out way back up the hill before wending our way to Olinda to enjoy lunch together in the Olinda Café. Thanks to all for such a great day!

If you missed this outing I hope that you can join us on our next outing. Keep you eyes open for emails and on the website for details of the June outing.
