I took some pics of the Greenfest when I went to the City Botanic Gardens , though my primary intention was to get some pics of  some trees. It was happening when I was there with lots of tents, people in green t-shirts and green environmental stuff on display. The Greenfest will be on til tomorrow.

There was a band playing when I entered the grounds at the side gate along the river. A large group of high schoolkids entered the same time as I did , they played some music which made us feel quite special :). They were also distributing stuff to people , which the teenagers grabbed enthusiastically. I didn’t take any, I thought they were tickets to see a football game or something.

One of the cars, a TESLA (whatever that is), displayed at the fest.  Looks cool.

In case you’re wondering , I do like to photograph other things beside birds and plants, namely people and this program called “Cultural Safari Afrika” inititated by the City Council provided an opportunity for shutterbugs like me with unlimited access to take pics of people without worrying about asking consent/permission first. The only regret I have is that I didn’t take enough pics !! And I would have actually like to take a couple of portrait pics of the pretty Ethiopian girls or lovely Congolese women etc.

These are the girls I’m talking about . The dashing African MC was distracting them at this moment , I would like to personally shoot him (on camera of course).

I’m sorry , I should do this in order, the opening ceremony by local Aborigines elders and didgeridoo musical artistes.

More African stuff in the display box, would be more visible if not for the reflection of  the light on the ceiling.

The place to sample some African food – Eritrean and yummy. This man was fixing the banner everytime I came to take pics.

Dancers from I’m not sure which part of Africa they are, but they look real awesome.

Lovely African women in traditional wear in a fashion parade. The loveliest of them leads the pack.

This toddler was into the groove. She really hit it on the dance floor.

I’m not sure if this one is a modern or traditional dance.

Last but not least, some hip hop.
