This is my place in time.
I have loved Jacaranda trees since I was a kid at primary school, threading the flowers onto twigs as a gift for my Mum. Whilst there are streets of Jacarandas planted in Perth (most notably around Applecross and Ardross), it’s been a very long time since I saw avenues of purple on the same scale as I have in Adelaide.
I’ve been lucky enough to even have some growing along my street. It’s absolutely lovely going for a walk to the shops, as the petals rain down softly.
These photos were taken across a few days, at different times, some early in the morning a couple of weeks ago, and some about 8pm last week. I expect after this weekend’s rainy weather, there may be a few more petals on the ground.
I expect these pictures are a little over-sharpened and for that I apologise. It can be tricky to nail it sometimes!
These photos were taken as part of the “My place in time” project. I started the project in May 2013 to encourage myself (and others) to document our local areas through photographs. There are 100 prompts, and it’s recommended that those partaking print their photographs when finished so there’s a hard copy for future generations.
