First Star I See Tonight
We were walking down Bourke Street in the city centre recently, showing the Christmas illuminations to overseas visitors. The seasonal decorations may not be on the grand scale of Hong Kong or Singapore, but they are always a big attraction, especially now that the summer evenings are so long.
I was on the other side of the street when I noticed this single star in a store window. We were on our way back to the car, but I knew I had to sprint across to take the shot.
I guess the thing that really caught my attention was not just the elongated shape of the star, but a couple of other factors as well. For one thing, it was the soft colours and shades in the window. And of course the clincher was that there was nothing else in the window, just the single star.
It was the perfect example of solitary beauty.
