Awesome to see Pete Robertson resurface in the limelight hungry for more gold.
I managed to get him to sit still for me long enough to do a Lifelines portrait session at the 2010 Beaufort Street Festival ... and here he is gracing the cover of the current Triathlon Magazine.
3 time ITU World Champion 2001, 2003 and 2005.
2 time Olympian 2000 and 2004.

What a rush!
This year's Beaufort St Festival was a massive event with over 100,000 people attending despite the rather roasty conditions.
Interestingly for me, the experience of being part of the Festival started not with the event on the day, but meeting the people who helped me create my space and those engaged in running the Event.
Despite the pressures of the massive task undertaken, even at the eleventh hour, their faces beaming contagious smiles.
A huge thank you goes out to Lee at Discus who helped me with the printing of my display, as well as Brody MacLeod and Marissa Glas for their support helping me find a home for it on the day ... and of course my priceless setup helpers Angela Pownell and Jacky Coglan who's elbow grease meant that things went up, and came down without a hitch.
The Festival itself was all I could have hoped for making sure I was more then entertained ... with a spectrum of charismatic characters pausing in the chaos of the streets to share a little time, and entrust me with their Lifelines.

A little nervous about the lack of time for my setup at the Beaufort Street Art Festival, but mostly excited ... I made my debut into the world of public art I guess. It was such a fantastic day.
An 8.30 start (with a little help from my friends Fi + Fleur), in the theme of the Laundromat across the road from my setup, I had my little bit of street decked out with clothes lines, pegs, socks + undies and a small selection of samples from the real Lifelines encounters ...It was only at about 2pm I realised I hadn’t even taken a sip of water since getting there ... adrenaline was keeping me buzzing ... and I couldn’t let go of the momentum till I finally started to feel dizzy ... and my lunch-break saviours arrived.
One of the portraits I did towards the end of the day, Lexy Scott, was to offer me my next appointment ... The opening of the Artillery Festival (Amnisty International) later in the week.
