Hi everyone!

As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.

Great Ocean Road Day 3

On the third day of the Great Ocean Road we drove to some more scenic points. The first stop was The Arch. It's a beautifully naturally sculpted arch that's 8 meters high. There is a walk way around the area so you get a few different views of the area.

The second stop was the London Bridge. The London Bridge used to actually be 2 bridges, but the first half of the bridge fell. "On the evening of 15 January 1990 the main arch connecting London Bridge to the mainland cracked and fell into the sea. Fortunately no one was injured. Two people marooned on the new island were rescued hours later by helicopter". The area has 4 different view points. Two are very easy to find and the last 2 are a bit more hidden and out of sight.

The third stop was the Grotto, my favourite of the three. When you arrive at the Grotto, there is a long stairway down to sea level where you're met with this beautiful view. The water inside the Grotto was completely still, yet there were huge waves in the ocean. It was a very interesting sight. We went on the perfect day. The sun emphasised the orange of the rock formation which highlighted the blue of the ocean and sky.

After that we went to a cheese factory. It was amazing. We weren't allowed in the actual factory, but there was a shop next to it where we had a cheese tasting of all the cheeses they made locally. We then ordered this cheese platter. It was delicious.
