EP State Grand Finals is the pinnacle of the physie year. Hours of dedication throughout the year lead to this wonderful display of the EP syllabus every November at Sydney Town Hall. There were many physie girls full of anxiety as they anticipated their time in the spotlight. The abundance of stress I felt was up there with them. Whilst its an absolutely amazing competition to watch, I unfortunately didn't get to share the full elation of the day. Don't get me wrong, I love to see the perfected positions, the tears of joy and hugs between physie friends and family...its just that, any technical issue that could have happened - happened! Brand new equipment failed to work! Grr! I frantically switched between cameras to try and capture the girls in all their beauty and became upset that I didn't get to capture all that I wanted to. Whilst no-one may have noticed and I'm probably outing my otherwise oblivious problem, I wanted to share my heartache.
One thing I know about 'physie girls', they are perfectionists. I know this too well, because I am one (and so is my daughter). I am disappointed that I missed the mark on my level of perfection, but glad that I managed to capture what I could with what I had. I'll bury my sadness with copious amounts of wine over the festive season and the upcoming joy of my first grandchild (due very very soon!) as well as enjoying a well earned rest after an extremely busy year and unbelievably frantic end of year.
A huge thank you to those who have purchased images and for your very kind words of appreciation. Glad you are happy with the photos of your beautiful physie girls. The gallery will be available until 31/12/2018. If anyone is looking for a particular girl and can't find them, please contact me via the contact tab and I'll check through everything for you. Also, the preview gallery has a download link for free images of State Finals held at Hurstville Civic Centre. This gallery will expire on 31/12/2018, so get in and save the memories.
Wishing you all a very merry and safe festive season and a happy physie new year!
