After hanging around at Cottesloe beach for half an hour one night waiting for a light show which never eventuated, I left with no mind-bending experience but with a photo I snapped on a whim. It was worthy enough to show my photography teacher and we then realised how well it picked up the laser in camera, rather than how I saw it in real life. I later read that the sculpture in the foreground is to do with immigration. While I can’t comment on that myself, It reminded me of the poster of ‘Star Wars: a new hope’, hence the title.
