Bacchus Marsh is a town of 17,000 people located within the triangle bounded by Melbourne, Geelong and Ballarat, Victoria. Throughout the year the town plays host to some fantastic events, including the David Calleja Memorial Car Show on the first weekend of February, the Harvest Festival in March, Relay for Life in September and the Strawberries and Cherries Festival in October.
Through my work with the local paper, The Moorabool News, I attend most of these events and record them photographically. However, in the past, the images not used by the newspaper (with its limited space) tend to languish in the files on my computer. So now I plan to feature the best of my collection, making them easily accessible for purchase in the many fantastic formats provided by Redbubble.
If you don’t see an image that you know I’ve taken, drop me a bubblemail and I’ll upload it.
In the meantime, here are some images from past events to give you an idea of what to expect in the future.
