Each year, the Victoria / Tasmania chapter of JETAA (returned JET people) holds a photography competition. I submitted a few photos and had three selected for the exhibition. The winner of the competition will be announced on opening night so please cross fingers for me. The above are my three. What do you think?
Here is the advertisement for the competition. Come along and see all the fab photos if you have time. I am sure they will all be fantastic!

We have had lots of blossom over the past month and there is even some still around. I love it and have photographed a bit, but I miss the celebration that you get in Japan. I think we are a bit spoilt for nature. We miss stuff. I try to take it all in!!! Take wattle for example. It is so beautiful. The Japanese have even discovered it. You can walk into any hanaya (florist) in Japan and find wattle for sale. Some people even have it growing in their gardens.
I have decided to invent my own kind of hanami here in Australia. Flower viewing parties. Picnics. Any excuse to get together, have fun and admire the beauty around us!
