I’m off to the retirement expo Construction In Civic

2CC At The Retirement And Lifestyle Expo

November 25th, 2005 at 04:55pm

The Retirement And Lifestyle Expo did appear to be very interesting, there wasn’t much there that was relevant or useful for myself, but those who are looking to retire soon or have already retired will find it interesting and find plenty of useful information. At one stage I could hear Denise Drysdale performing but I did not actually see her.

I did say that I would have some photos, I didn’t get as many as I was hoping for due to the fact that I don’t really want to take too many photos of the people involved, and I’m sure they don’t need me taking a few zillion photos. I stayed for about 45 minutes, but it is understandably off putting having spectators, there is a large difference between public speaking and radio broadcasting. It is much easier to forget that you are talking to a lot of people when you are in a studio, when you have spectators it does become a bit more difficult as the “public speaking issue” comes into it.

Anyway, I took two photos, the first one showing the studio at the exhibition.

And there is one of Mike Welsh’s first interview of the afternoon, this photo is badly out of focus due to a mistake on my behalf. This camera is new to me and I really need to read the instruction manual properly. My experience with it so far indicates that it focusses better with a flash, but a flash is very off putting when broadcasting and I didn’t want to cause any problems.

If you happen to be at the retirement expo over the weekend, you should be able to drop by and say hello or wave to David Young and Mike Frame, I’m sure they will be happy to say hello or wave back.

    Samuel it’s a good thing you put those copyright notices on there. Good thinking. There are all kinds of crooks and hucksters on the internet that are happy to steal other people’s work.

    Mike doesn’t look very happy does he ! — Is that Kim sitting in front of him ? …… She looks like she has a patch over her left eye !

    It’s not a good photo. Kim is actually not in that photo, she was on the other side of Mike and I don’t think she wanted to be photographed. The person in front of him is one of the event organisers, the microphone was too close to her head for me to get a decent photo (and it could be half the reason the auto focus failed).
