This weekend’s Word/Photo Challenge from ‘Weekly Prompts’ is: ‘The Bridge’ …. My bridge is the picturesque Cunningham Pier, on the harbour, in Geelong. Please go and visit the ‘Weekly Prompts’ site by clicking >> here
At ‘The Pier Geelong’, homegrown singing sensation Taylor Henderson, headlined Sunday’s concert “GEELONG FIRES-UP”. The event was a local collaborative initiative aiming to raise a $1 for every Geelong citizen, i.e. $260,000 in total, for the “Fire Fund Relief”, here in Australia.
On a balmy Sunday
I’m here at the function room
In the the grandiose, ‘The Pier Geelong’
Overlooking a calm Corio Bay
It’s only mid-afternoon
And already, there’s a wave of sound
Cascading upon the gathering crowd
Rhythmical music, pleasing this deck of hearts
The show rolls happily into the evening
Firing-up the charity event’s audience
Cheering, they all sing and dance
And the fund raiser’s been a burning success
