Culture on the Clarence

Sunday awoke to another beautiful clear sunny sky in Grafton. I headed over to South Grafton for one of the Jacaranda festival's first events - Culture on the Clarence, a community fair celebrating local talent, musicians, indigenous heritage and community groups. It was a lovely mix of stalls and activity along the heritage shopping area of Skinner Street.
I photographed much of the lead lighting in older buildings and chatted with local artist, Rochelle Summerfield.
The town crier, in attendance with some of the Jacaranda Queen candidates, added jolly cheer to the atmosphere.
The river end of Skinner Street has tranquil views of Susan Island in the middle of the Clarence River and Grafton beyond. It was a lovely morning.
