January 2010
I wanted to photograph this big top last year but it was already gone from this site where it sets up every year. I vowed to stop procrastinating and get out with the camera this year – and so I kept my word! I captured the fabulous yellow and white Silvers Circus tent where it is set up between the sea at Altona Bay and the Kooringal Golf course in Victoria, Australia. Just like a big kid I get so excited when I see that a circus is in town!

    great series. for some unknown reason I like this one the best……can’t tell you why…..but it gets me…

  • Jeff, I’m so glad you ‘like this one the best’-it’s my favourite and it was the composition I had in mind to photograph for the last year or so…Thank you so much for your viewpoint…I don’t know why I like it either…
