Festive period 2019 was something very unusual for me, because of the months-long bush fires that flamed up in Australia, particularly east coast and south area over the four states.
All graphics and updates cast by the media were of heartbreaking, and the blaze did not set back on New Years Eve and New Years Day.
Temperature on Saturday and Sunday last week soared to record-breaking high, which coincidentally some source was saying, apart from the subject of bush fires, that the earth took the closest position to the sun in her orbit.
This piece below was drawn while watching the circumstances, with the inspiration driven by my sincere wish of rainfalls and / or something good of element of aqua, embrace all of the burned areas and heal them. Yep, the motif is completely unrelated to the subject, but this is how I could send my love over.
My tribe in Japan made it for me from the scratch making the solution with fresh indigo leaves.
This enchanted gift thrilled me, excited me, and shook me.
Why, because there is no clone / copy of this indigo scarf. The solution and weather, and other conditions bring this only beautiful result on the textile, and you will never make exactly the same result in this blue.
This was taken at The Rocks, Sydney on last weekend. Lots of buildings in Sydney city were shone by afternoon sunlight.
The contrast of colors between foreground in gold and background of blue sky was quite impressed to me. I did not have my DSLR with me but my old iPhone did a fair work like below, I think… :-).
It was warm winter afternoon and the crowd around the area was frolic with wines and foods as served by number of stalls at the site. The photo was caught when the light started dimming toward evening. It was a lucky shot, I caught. 🙂
I would like to share a couple of images I photographed a couple of months ago. At that day I had an early appointment near Bondi first in the morning. I could have left the area after the appointment but I checked my time and found that I could squash short photography time before getting out. So I did so quickly along Bondi Coastal Walk.
