Festival Photography

Easter has become synonymous with Canberra and the National Folk Festival over recent years.  Fairbridge Festival is usually the weekend before or afterwards.  This year I made it to both – the former as a solo traveller and the latter en famille.

Although I was mainly at ‘the National’ to play music and catch up with friends – and at Fairbridge to play a gig and hang out with Sarah and Bryn, I did take the camera.

Here are a few opportunistic photos.
