Janelle's big, fat, juicy world

My Photo scholarship 2010 entry

Worldwide | Tuesday, 5 October 2010 | 3 photos


Is this heaven or hell? A tortured artists mind or an enlightened spiritualists one? A building of worship or a tourist destination? I think it can be interpreted as all of these things. Thai artist Chalermchai Kositpipat is creating a visionary legacy for Thailand, for the people and for the Buddhist religion.

Wat Rong Khun - The White Temple, is a wonderful example of where one individual, using his own money, artistry and determination is making a huge contribution to his country. The unique piece of architecture is a national monument in the making. As the temple grows so will employment and prosperity in the area.

Seeing art, architecture, historic monuments, sweeping landscape, throngs of people, animals behaving in their true nature... these are just a few of the broad reasons why I love to travel and love to photograph. I am happy to travel alone or in a group and have done both extensively. I am extremely easy going, love my sport, my food and have a great sense of humor. I have experience in sorting out travel complications in high pressure situations, having traveled with and represented Australia in cycling in the Australia Paralympic Team. I am currently living in Japan.

I would love to have a successful online photographic gallery, with a good measure of understanding to be able to put these photos into context via journals for those who wish to learn something about the world we live in. I would also love to increase my skills to work more in macro photography.

To win this competition and have the opportunity to learn from a professional, and also learn tips for photographing wildlife would be a double win! I'm always disappointed with how my animal shots come out. I am sure I can improve on a moving, blurry streak across the frame!
Thanks!
