Ballarat Heritage Weekend takes place in May every year on Mothers Day weekend. This year (2014) it was on May 10 and 11. As I organised the FedUni Tweed Ride on the Saturday, I only had the Sunday to explore the activities that were happening. One of my favourite things to do is catch the steam train. It was the last thing we did at the festival and it was just myself and my mum who went. I took my camera with me as I had been taking photos of the event and mum offered to have a go at photographing me for the blog.
I set the camera up for her then would spot shots with good lighting and prompt her with how to take the snap.
I think she did a pretty spectacular job. Ever taken photos on a rickety, old train while it's moving? It's a difficult task for anyone.
Behind me here is the iconic Ballarat Railway Station clock tower. The clock tower was badly damaged in a fire in 1981.
