Passion for Childers
BILL Fuller’s passion for photography and the Childers landscape is contagious.
Meeting the talented photographer last Friday proved to be a fun-filled encounter despite my persistent hayfever knocking me for six.
Bill spoke eloquently about what was unique about Childers. The red soil. The canefields. The morning mist.
His images speak for themselves and are a great calling card for the Isis region showcasing the beauty of the distinctive terrain.
The fact one of his photos was handpicked by Tourism Australia’s Instagram account and has received more than 50,000 likes, is a fantastic free advertisement for the region.
Bill is one of the many passionate and committed Childers locals I have met during my two-month tenure at the Town and Country.
From the organisers of the Twilight Food and Growers’ Markets to the canegrowers working hard out on the fields to the intimate chat I had with former Isis Shire mayor Bill Trevor about the Palace Backpackers Hostel fire.
It has been a memorable experience.
Childers is filled with imaginative, passionate people attempting to grow the area yet maintain its small-town charm.
It’s been a pleasure writing for the newspaper and hopefully bringing local news stories to your attention.
Next week Jodie Dixon will take up the permanent role as the Town and Country reporter and I’m sure will do an admirable job.
