Was working on my ute in the yard the other day when a fellow happened to walk by. He was looking at my Adventure Kings rooftop tent, which I had up to air out, and made a comment about having a tent up on the roof. This started a conversation between us about the opportunities that life brings and how each opportunity becomes a life experience.
Cadel told me he was staying in the Cairns area for six months, having landed a job at the Cairns Airport. He had only just arrived from South Australia and was still finding his bearings.
Turns out that he is quite the star, having acted in a movie called My Gallipoli as a Turkish Officer. He said he has only watched it once but I have put it on my watch list to see just what talent he showed.
With a past steeped in the disciplines of martial arts, he told me he has been teaching his young children the basics to help them enjoy the benefits of a sporting life. It was pretty clear though, that Caled has a very healthy respect for the local crocs as he quizzed me on places where it is best not to swim.
I am hoping that we will see more of each other over the next few months as we both spend time in Trinity Beach. So welcome Caled.. I hope you have a great time while you are up here.
The posts on this page are a part of a project to assist to build confidence to walk up to people with my camera, as a street photographer, and ask them if I can take their picture. Street photography can be a daunting genre to practice however, I believe it is important that we document the still life images that will one day be a part of our heritage. There are many people who are offended by someone like myself taking their photo, but I can assure you that this is not intended for anything but the history of our people. I will always endeavour to be appropriate in the photographs that I publish however, I do reserve the right, and your indulgence, to post images that tell stories of those who live less fortunate lives, for it is in these photos we will learn where we need to improve as a people
I look forward to reading your comments on what I post, both positive and not so positive as I respect that everyone has the right to an opinion.
