A Snapshot of Two Cities #5

18:42, 18/8/2015, Kyoto, Japan

I like Isabel’s snapshot of the Japanese landscape – it looks so warm and hazy. And, if I’m going to get really arty-farty, I like the lines in the photo – the lines of the brick wall off to the left, the lines of the fence, and the power lines leading into the photo. Plus, another bird!

A Snapshot of Two Cities #5 - Yarn bombing trees in Camberwell

9:55, 16/8/2015, Burwood, Australia

I went out for (DELICIOUS) breakfast on Sunday morning with Mr. birdandfox (seriously, Santucci’s on Burwood Highway – get on it) and made a mental note to take a photo of these trees that have been yarn bombed on our way out. How colourful and happy are they? And snug! These winter days and nights have been cold, so I’m glad these trees have had some extra protection. Yarn bombing always brings a smile to my face whenever I see it.

A Snapshot of Two Cities is a collaborative project between myself and Isabel from Nanjing Nian. We take a photo of something that catches our eye each week and post the photos on our blogs. We hope you enjoy looking at the differences and similarities between the two cities and cultures, and also just some pretty pictures. You can read more about it in the first posting.

        Haha, thanks Jacqui! Fortunately, all those crocheted doilies were donating, or I would still be trying to finish it now!

    No way, I can’t believe the yarn bomber in question was Catherine! Melbourne is a small world hey. Yarn bombing always makes me smile too, and those trees look so snug and happy in their wooly coats. x

    By the way, thanks for your artistic analysis of my pic…I sometimes despair at the amount of power lines in the world ruining photos, and am often tempted to Photoshop them out, but in this case maybe they work. Either way, power lines are definitely not going away anytime soon, so might as well use them for their angles and lines! x
