My daughter, Carys, is pretty happy to help me out when I want to try something new, or test some gear.
Testing a new flash got a bit much for her after a while though (understandably).
This was the last frame – the flash was bounced off the ceiling, in a dark room.

Marketed as ‘Australia’s Biggest Party’, the annual Kalgoorlie-Boulder Race Round (‘The Round’) attracts thousands of people from all over Australia – and from all walks of life – to the West Australian outback city, that lies four-hundred kilometres from the coast and six-hundred kilometres from the nearest capital city (Perth). The week-long event is held every September, and features everything from horse racing and fashion competitions, to two-up in a rusty old shed on the outskirts of town.
Over the last two years I have been documenting The Round for various outlets/organisations. These are some of the photos.
