Where Interesting Happens

Tradie by day and amateur photographer by night, Earlwood’s Eddie Bachalani has been named inaugural winner of the Where interesting Happens Photography Competition.

Mayor of the City of Canterbury Bankstown, Khal Asfour, said more than 100 entries were submitted.

"It is interesting to see the often very different interesting places and interesting faces our residents captured in our City over the past 12 months," Mayor Asfour said.

"The entries were short-listed to nine by residents on our Facebook page and I had the unenviable job of choosing the winner."

Mr Bachalani, who is a local builder by trade, said he was surprised to win with his photograph of the Cook’s River, overlooking Beaman Park.

"This photo was taken during one of my afternoon walks along the Cooks River," he said.

"It was just a case of being in the right place at the right time. The colour in the trees and the tranquillity really caught my attention, so I stopped and took a photo.

"I am proud to live in Canterbury-Bankstown. Most people would not know such a beautiful place is right under our noses."

Mr Bachalani’s photograph was featured on the Council News page in the Express on 11 July.

Bankstown Arts Centre Director, Vandana Ram, said Mr Bachalani’s entry was very popular with residents.

"I can see why because its composition was really strong, with the image of the Cooks River and the beautiful reflection of the trees in the still water," Ms Ram said.

"It also represented a connection of people and nature, and showed an active community enjoying one of our parklands."

As winner, Mr Bachalani received a $100 JB HI-FI voucher, with his photograph and those from the other eight finalists on exhibition at the Arts Centre until the end of February.

The Where interesting Happens Photography Competition is underway again in 2018. To submit a photograph, visit
