NAIDOC Week

Hi all, by now NAIDOC Week should have wrapped up. Some amazing scenes and moments in time have been witnessed by myself and many other cultures that live in and around Sydney.  

My experience with NAIDOC Week was rewarding. I always enjoy taking in the indigenous culture. Shooting these events and assignments truly are an honnor.  

I have to say I am fond of the traditional smoking ceremony. This is where my picture was taken for this post.  

A special moment in time, as there was a flock of birds circling above auntie Norma announced to the crowd that gathered that they believed that their ancestors came back as pets of nature and these birds circling were somehow letting everyone know that they were happy.  

My picture of Uncle Stephen has to be one of my favourite pictures taken of him or any assignment regarding NAIDOC week. Oh yeah those smoking ceremony, really rad. Very spiritual breathing in the eucalyptus leaves.  

Cheers, Si
