On Good Friday morning, Sydney Harbour is filled with mist. Even the biggest construction in the harbour is hazed, in a pleasing way.
This series is almost ready to be hung. Suwannakron, in Thai, means City of Gold. The next thing I would like to do is to print them on canvas. I am in the process of the final three selection as stand alone pieces and the rest I will arrange them in triptech and diptych.
Fort Denison in misty Sydney Harbour on Good Friday.
If I was back in Thailand, I would be celebrating Thai New Year Day—Songkran Festival. It is a crazy time of the year in Thai calendar. It was for me, anyway. Here in Sydney, I have a tranquil moment in the dawn of Songkran.
Kirribilli in misty Sydney Harbour on Good Friday.
After a very long week at work, I finish at 5 am and expect to catch sunrise. It turns out to be a foggy morning. What a tranquil Good Friday dawn!
In the same flock of corellas in Victoria Park, Sydney, some of them are distinctively different with pink splashes on their throats. Obviously, there is another life form in the group, the long-billed corellas (Cacatua tenuirostris). I begin to wonder why these two birds are grouping together in the urban environment. They are clearly closer cousins in the cockatoo family (Cacatuidae) than the somewhat more urbanised sulphur-crested cockatoos (Cacatua galerita). They are all social birds, anyway.
Like little corellas, their distribution in Australia has crossed into the city, only much smaller and just in the Sydney area, regarding Wikipedia.
This old one is isolated from the others. While the rest is called out and go to the trees, it still is picking grass seeds from the ground. It lets me approach close to get these shots, so close that I can notice a tag on its foot. Apparently, it is experienced being photographed.
