Taken as part of a collaboration with Daniel Rarela. He has written a beautiful piece about sexuality and the church, called If Forever Is Denied

Daniel explains:
Even if God won’t ever allow to give my heart to any man other than Jesus… I consider it one of His greatest mercies that there will always be music, and there will always be dance. And when the beat is right, all prejudices, hatred, and all around negativity just seem to melt away once you get on the floor.

Let’s keep dancing!

This image is one of many buildings lit up as part of the 2008 Adelaide Festival. After 9pm the lights come on transforming the building into a personality! The facade reminds me of how individual we can be.

Neither life nor art travels in clear straight lines. While he has spent his adult life developing a career in pharmacy, his interest in the arts has continued to grow. Paul’s passion for photography combined with his love of travel has produced a remarkable portfolio of images inspired by colour and movement. In a small way capturing images satisfies his curiosity about people and their culture.

    Welcome. My 19 yr old son went to see this light display also and he hasn’t been able to stop raving about it.

    Very nice Paul. We were there last night. I was surprised at how many people were there when we got there (around 9pm) but as we left around 11.45 there were way way less people. I dare say there’ll be quite a few more pics popping up. There were camera’s and tripods everywhere.Mick.

    A captivating image … for me it almost has a painterly aspect to it.
