This isn’t a real post. It’s an excuse to share pretty pictures.
Last night, I had a handful of free tickets to a ballet performance at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. It was a picnic-on-the-grass type of thing and since it was so low-key and accessible, I took a bunch of friends who hadn’t had a great deal of exposure to ballet before. I was really anxious before the performance, fretting that it would rain, that my friends wouldn’t enjoy it since it wasn’t really their “thing,” that we would be too far from the stage to see anything. I needn’t have worried. It was a perfect night, made even better by the weather and company.
Wandering through the Royal Botanical Gardens after the performance, we came across a beautifully lit fountain. Inspired by the dancers we’d just seen, the gorgeous scenery and (above all) the presence of cameras… I’m sure you can imagine what happened next.
I’ve wanted some photos of my postures forever, but it just never seemed to work out. But here I was, suddenly presented with patient friends, a stunning backdrop and (most importantly) weather hot enough that my muscles already felt warmed up! It was obviously meant to be :)
