8 July 2011.

Nikon D40.

Self portrait in a still puddle on a chilly winter’s day at a playground (9 degrees celsius). I was wearing a fluffy hat with cat ears on top – which you can almost see in the reflection.

Walking out along the streets in the neighbourhood, on a day when most people were staying indoors, I noticed gardens full of flowers in bloom: daffodils, jonquils, roses in myriad shades of brilliant colour, red-flowering eucalyptus, and lavender. Even in the cold of winter, nature shows life and vibrancy. Against the backdrop of lonely streets and heavy grey clouded skies, somehow the flowers seemed brighter.
