Footy and fun in Hawthorn next month

February 22, 2013 by  

Hawthorn football fans should make a date in their diaries for early next month when the Hawthorn Football Club Family Day takes place.

The event is being held at the Hawthorn Hawks’ spiritual home at the Glenferrie Oval. It is a great chance to get up close and personal with some of the players during a fun day out.

Entertainment includes a live stage show by Alvin and the Chipmunks, who will also be on hand to meet and greet visitors. A live band will provide entertainment for the adults and the team’s sponsors will be offering activities for all the family. The event will also promote the work of Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation, which encourages people to consider organ and tissue donation and is supported by the Hawks.

The Hawks players will be available for a limited time to sign autographs and have pictures taken with fans. Anyone who gets a great shot might like to think about using a professional printing company to create a high quality copy of the picture for framing or sending to friends. The 2013 guernsey presentation will take place on stage during the event and official team merchandise will be on sale for anyone who wants to take home the latest strip.

The family day takes place from 11am to 2pm on Sunday March 3rd and entry is free for members. Non-members are asked to make a gold coin donation. There will be food and drink available, but if families prefer they can bring a picnic.

Local photographer on a bid to document Australia.

October 12, 2012 by  

A Hawthorn photographer has embarked on an intrepid journey to take photographs around Australia.

Eddie Hobson plans to spend 100 days travelling around the country taking photographs in as many locations as possible, including beaches, cities, rural areas, and the desert.

The Hawthorn East based photographer estimates he will snap in excess of 500,000 pictures during his trip.

Once he has finished his journey, Hobson will turn his photographs into time-lapse videos to be featured on the Internet. Time-lapse photography involves shooting pictures at one location over a period of time and then using a computer programme to merge the pictures together to create a fast-changing image.

The 23-year-old has already created time-lapse pieces of Melbourne and New York and now hopes to document different parts of Australia in the same way.

Hobson plans to create a series of videos of the country's capital cities and regional areas and a short time-lapse film showing the best of Australia. He said:

"I thought it would be amazing to capture all of Australia's beauty, from desolate plains and beautiful beaches to bustling metropolises."

Amateur photographers inspired by Hobson's project could start their own smaller project taking pictures in their local area. Print companies can produce prints or posters from photographs or even collect a series of photographs together to produce a book.

Anyone wanting to keep up to date with Hobson's project can visit his website, Ta-Ta Ride Photography, on which he will be posting photographs and videos from his journey.
