You know those moments in your life when you eyes open just that little bit wider along with your heart? You realise that yes, we are much better off than we think we are and there are so many wonderful people out there that don't get the recognition they deserve. I had one of these moments when capturing the Queensland office of Life Without Barriers 10 year Anniversary recently. While the rest of the world continued as normal, a small group of valued people gathered at the Life Without Barriers (LWB) Qld office to celebrate 10 years of support and understanding to vulnerable and marginalised people. It is heartwarming to see both the helpers and those that receive assistance getting together and celebrating their achievements and how much more enriched their lives are since discovering LWB. It was one of those times when I was glad to have a camera in front of my face covering the damp eyes as I listened to individual stories and amazing achievements. :)
Thank you to Life Without Barriers for including me in the day along and opening my eyes. Thank you to David from Flagstone Images for your assistance. The Lions @ Springwood were also in attendance presenting a valued staff member (and huge Brisbane Lion's fan) a signed Lions momento.
