FEATURED IN – ‘Candid Photography’

A series of candid images from the public May Day rally 2010 in Fremantle, Western Australia.
Traditionally an international day for celebrating workers rights, many unions marching, also marching were social justice groups and others. It was a spirited day and march with many vibrant characters.

No political statement here at all – just thought it would be a great opportunity to try some photo journalistic style photography.

Camera – Nikon D90
Lens 55-200mm

FEATURED IN – ‘Major Event’
