    Photos of the Week: Rachel’s birds eye view

 

Recently one of our intrepid Parklands staff members volunteered to take a few photos of Centennial Park.

After she volunteered, we told her where the photos were to be taken from!

 

Rachel volunteers before she realises what she’s volunteering for

A short time ago we had a film crew in Centennial Park filming an advertisement. The advertisement included some aerial shots from two tall cherrypickers. This, we thought, was the perfect opportunity to sneak in and use the opportunity to grab some new photos of Centennial Park.

The photographic task went to Parklands’ staff member Rachel. Luckily for us, Rachel braved the challenge and here are some of the great shots she came back with.

We hope you enjoy some new angles on Centennial Park.

We can’t all scale to these heights in a cherrypicker, but perhaps you think you have a unique, novel or interesting angle on Centennial Park amongst your photo collection. Share them with us by posting them on our Facebook fan page, tweeting them to us on Twitter or emailing them to online@centennialparklands.com.au

You never know, you may be our next Photo of the Week!
