What can I say, an amazing day yesterday. I was so grateful to be in the court room, amongst Allison’s family and friends and to hear those 2 words “Guilty” Life” The overflow court roared as one.
Tears flowed freely amongst many. Whilst many of us never knew Allison personally, I feel this trial, we as just normal every day Australians, got to know and fall in love with Allison Baden Clay.
For everything that woman had gone through during her married life, she was an just the most amazing Captain of the human version of the Titanic. The ship was sinking, hitting major hurdles, yet, this courageous woman went about her day to day life, caring for her children, trying to stop the ship from hitting the iceberg. What a brave, beautiful person she was.
Yesterday justice was served for Allison and her family and friends. I have enjoyed taking photos to help give people some perspective who couldn’t be there. Allison’s family were nothing short of AMAZING to us who have been at the trial since day 1. They were gracious, kind, caring, gentle people, it proved to me what an AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL,CARING, LOYAL family they are.
Whilst this verdict does nothing to ease their pain and broken hearts at least I feel it shows how a community of strangers can come together and support someone during their darkest hours and be there as a moral support to see the justice system do it’s job.
Finally I just want to thank Robbo for allowing me to share my images on here, I love my photography with a passion. I try to make the viewer feel like they’re there, in the front row, I think I achieved my goal during this trial. Can I ask that you be RESPECTFUL to my work, by not copying these photos and posting on your facebook, twitter pages. I put these images on here in good faith. Rather, do the right thing and share the page, that’s the greatest compliment you can do to me and Robbo.
Allison, may your spirit live on, you’re a shining example of how to deal with adversity and still look for the positives! May your soul be at peace with the Lord, God Bless you, never to be forgotten! Justice is SERVED, SETTLED!!
This morning before heading back home I went out to Allison’s memorial to take some final photos given the public has been regularly placing flowers since the verdict. I also stopped by the Indooroopilly Police station, they played a significant role in the case.
