I went for a walk at lunchtime this afternoon and, as always, I had my camera with me. As you know, it's winter here in Australia and today was one of those dull, cloudy days when there are endless possibilities with a camera.
The Yarra River was a long ribbon of silver-grey and I wondered how I could possibly capture some of that in isolation. Then, as I walked across Princes Bridge I saw this ancient tree between Federation Square and the riverbank. Its glossy, dark burgundy foliage was the perfect foil for the rippling surface of the river.
This post is in response to Mama Geek and Cecily's new theme, Photo Story Friday. Pay them a visit and see how easy it is to take part. In Mama Geek's own words: "Post photo(s) that you took and simply tell the story behind it. Explain why you pressed the shutter button, what memory it invokes, what we don't know, why you love it or why you don't. Any subject."
Anything to do with photography, you can count me in ... even on a cold winter afternoon. Who said grey wasn't gorgeous?
