I started the day at the growers’ markets. Bellingen struck it lucky with clear skies and warm weather.
|JO AND JAZZIE AT GROWERS’ MARKET||WITH FRIENDS|
|LINING UP FOR BREKKIE||PETE BUFO|
The Markets are a little small in Mid Winter. We eat and walk and stock up on vegies and fruit. This week we then headed over the bridge and into town for the Hospital Rally.
I am going to paste a goodly amount of images here in case there is someone who would like to see. As I have said before, I am timid when it comes to photography and work with the little Fuji outfit I got for my 60th birthday last year. Not ingredients for a successful activist. I am, however, prolific and sneaky so I have snapped a good few shots albeit blurred and I am also quick so they are up on site straight away.
The rally was intentionally held today to match with a project of Ridley Scott’s. That meant there were some fine filmmakers there and some top quality cameramen. I do mean Men. These will be out soon and will show people’s faces rather than their rear views and also include the audio which I had difficulty hearing because the ukelele players sat at a table in MAAM GADUYING Park and played Ukelele whilst singing Hawaiian songs while the Speakers were on. I do not know why.
Keep your eyes out for those Videos, Images and News items.
Now lets see what we can salvage from the FUJIFILM Camera and what I can recall of the Speakers and events. Check my photoblog as well in case I have managed to capture something which interests you.
SAVE BELLINGEN HOSPITAL RALLY
24 JULY 2010
The SAVE BELLO HOSPITAL balloons were available for a gold coin donation.
The Doctors spoke of the need for Mental Health Units as well as our A & E and Maternity. I would be bringing the Children’s Ward back as well and Detox for Drugs and Alcohol.
The Rally headed up out of the Park and up Hyde Street. An Armoured Car led the way and that was impressive. One thing which also impressed me was the cross section of community. Age, Sex, Race, Cultural Inclination were all covered.
