World Acupuncture Goes Tribal


Another day in Rainbow Bay sees cloudy skies and tiny waves. The following ‘Luminate 09’  images of the opening ceremony, fire twirlers,  performers and a captivated audience reflects the ‘organic’ nature of proceedings duly presenting  some visually exciting and photographically challenging opportunities.

Some Like It Hot!

Definitely a stimulating and totally left field experience for me.

Hope you enjoy, I certainly did.
