The 2014 Canberra Color Run

I was asked to be the official photographer for the inaugural Color Run in Canberra on the 16th of February.

With a homemade waterproof (and almost colour-proof) housing on my camera and a 50mm prime lens, I wondered just how colourful things were going to get during the 5km fun-run.

A week after the best party hit town (as in the Multicultural Festival) Canberrans backed it up with a great day in Commonwealth Park. The atmosphere throughout the run, and the after party, was unreal.
