Australia’s lesson for the world was the keynote speech given by George Megalogenis at the Governor’s Multicultural Awards recently. What was I doing there you ask? I nominated someone for an award; the person I nominated didn’t get one but I got an invitation from the Governor to attend the award presentation, so I came along with my camera.

I wasn’t there to cover it as media or anything, although in the past when I have volunteered or worked as a broadcaster I have attended some very grand occasions. Over the years I have interviewed some very interesting people in the course of producing radio or writing.

What I love about this event is the great embrace the Governor gives the Multicultural Community of South Australia.

The building is why I went to the event as well. I love the grounds and the building itself. I imagined the event would be smaller and inside; so I was really looking to get more shots of the inside of the building. This time around that was not to be, but I still enjoyed the views and met some great folk.

So my thanks go to His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC for the invitation. Congratulations to all the nominees and Award Winners!
