I’d had enough of winter…
Pleasingly I had actually enjoyed some of winter. It had been quite mild and I had acquired a new, more positive, attitude toward the season I used to loath with a passion. (In fact I wrote a post about this paradigm shift)
However it was time for winter to go away.
1 September, 2015.
And so it was that the first day of Spring in Melbourne dawned and it was, as we say around these parts – “a cracker”! Blue skies and blossoms beaconing to be photographed. Would have been rude not to!
So I slung the DSLR over my shoulder and went for a saunter around my local environs to see what I could see. I live only about four kilometres from the CBD of Melbourne, a city of over four million inhabitants, in a suburb called Brunswick.
There’s always plenty going on around here and you need to carefully pick your way past hipster whiskers for fear of being cut. It’s urban and vibrant and a perpetual canvas for someone like myself very much in to street photography.
I even took a pen and paper with me on my wander to undertake a ‘review’ of the first six months of this blog – Thirty Summers – in a nearby park.
In fact as a result of that review, undertaken upon my grass desk (pictured above), I actually made the decision to move the blog from my self-hosted web platform here to WordPress.com. It’s one of the better decisions I’ve made I have to say as the community here is amazing.
Maybe I should work at a grass desk more often?
