Winter – Wordless Wednesday (No. 5)

It has been a while since I've done a Wordless Wednesday, but it thought I'd try again, seeing that I actually liked some of the photos I took at a family outing to a park in Brunswick on the weekend. It has been cold here this last week. Winter has truly set in.

Last night I went to the forum 'Growing up Asian in Australia' last night, held to mark the launch of the new anthology of writing by writers of Asian descent – about growing up Asian in Australia – edited by Alice Pung, and I've had Hanif Kureishi on my mind .

Wouldn't you know it,
his website has a story with a tree, children, an 'Asian' father and a park. Oh, and an errant ball. I recommend you read his story 'Hullabaloo in the Tree' to go along with the photo. I will blog on last night's panel when I have some time later this week.

I'm not that easily impressed with photos. I mean... there are just so many! Everywhere I look! It reminds me of when my ex and I were looking for engagement rings. After looking all day, I didn't even want one!

But THIS photo is gorgeous! Knocked me off my chair! Absolutely stunning.

I like your writing. Just stopping to say hi. I'm here by way of Stephen, by way of Smack.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you! That is very kind! I've recently been taking my photographs more seriously, and I appreciate your positive feedback.

I do like this photo more and more as I look at it, and it is funny to think it took 5 or six shots or tries to come up with this one that works.

Thanks again.
