The Story of Bungaree

Posted in News and Events - Chris Gleisner, Uncategorized on May 21, 2010 by chrisgleisner

Yesterday I photographed the book launch for The Story of Bungaree at The Gunner’s Barracks in Mosman. The book was published by the Harbour Trust. Above is a photo of decendants of both Bungaree (Uncle Bob) and  Governor Macquarie’s sister  (Michelle – and I’m sorry I have forgotten her surname).

The Governor of NSW, Marie Bashir, launched the book, and as usual, gave a very nice speech. I’ve photographed her several times and I’m always impressed with her.

Tim Cahill Gala Dinner

Last night I photographed a gala dinner hosted by the NSW Cancer Council for the Tim Cahill Cancer Fund for Children. A lovely night for a great cause. Some of Tim’s fans would be very jealous that I got to photograph him all night. He seems like a very nice guy. 🙂
