WOW WOW WOW! What a day it was yesterday! and last night! it was awesome! To have 30 Melbourne photographers undertake Project Street 7:30 to shoot, edit print, and exhibit all in 7 hours was an amazing experience. To see the 30 images auctioned last night (raising $11,400 for Kids Under Cover charity) surrounded by at least 200 people was amazing. I am stoked my print was the highest auctioned photo on the night ($725).
