I am such a silly duffer! It wasn't until we were about to park the car that I discovered that the battery in our camera needed charging. Insert swear word here. The photos I'm about to show you were taken with Anthony's very cheap/basic/crappy mobile. One or two are surprisingly good. Although I don't think photos do the performance justice really, even the professional ones I've seen fail to capture just how spectacular the angels looked against Perth's beautiful modernist Council House
had to show you a pic
I love this building.
`or the reaction of the crowd to the spectacle above and, by the end of the performance, all around them. Talk about seeing things through the eyes of a child...for 30 minutes I felt like I was six years old! Forty years younger, waaaaay better than any face lift!
Anyway, here are Anthony's pics
Angel flying through the sky, feathers in tow
They're feathers btw, not fireworks or an exploding building!
As you can see we were very close to the action, this angel was descending from the sky and landed (ever so lightly) on the ground in front of us. The large white shape in the foreground is an enormous "balloon" angel which floated and bobbed among the crowd. I think this photo is rather special...don't you?
A blurry photo but another look at the balloon,
that's St Georges Cathedral in the background.
Another beautiful angel on her way down from heaven
The next photo is not one of ours, it was taken in Buenos Aries (2010), but I wanted to show you a pic of the aftermath and what it was like to be among all those feathers.
And here I am feathers, not flowers in my hair...
not the greatest photo of me, but what the heck! I'm including it...I'm still finding feathers in the strangest places! It took me ages to get them out of my hair, there's probably a few still there!
