Artist's Description

I’m taking the challenge: To see if this picture qualifies for the candid photos group, on RedBubble.
Straight after taking this photo I raced up to Peter and told him I’d be publishing this picture of him, picking his nose_. (Obviously not true.)
Luckily, he was highly amused.
To quote a character from the TV show, the Simpsons, ………._You may have seen
Peter on TV, in such roles as judge, on ABC TV.

The other candid shots include the chairperson of the Dutch Australian Cultural Centre, videoing the shuffleboard activity and my paparazzi-style shot of the Consul-General of the Netherland’s Press and Cultural Affairs Officer, in Sydney, hoping to relax, incognito, at this celebration of the Queen of the Netherland’s Birthday and, of course children enjoying the somewhat nostalgic activity of shuffleboarding or, as it is in Dutch: sjoelbakken.

A family-friend, with whom we migrated to Australia, along with her husband and daughter, in 1956, returned to the Netherlands and sent this picture, today, by email.
On the (Dutch) queen’s birthday, she’s in her element.
Selling car-boot-sale-style is the tradition there.

….and so it was part of the celebrations, here in Sydney’s Hunters Hill, on May 3, 2008, as well.

Good fun! Zeker weten!
