This haiku by 18th century poet Buson is possibly my favourite of the Japanese masters. It captures the endless possibilities of the public domain that awaits every one of us just 'beyond the gate'. This image was taken just beyond my gate in Sydney this autumn morning.
Hey folk. As some of you know, I'm back at university studying urban design (the perfect course for any flaneur out there). So - just for this year - I've swapped photographing little things like bees for learning how to draw cities with actual, ink-filled pens.
Somehow, while I've been away, this blog has become far more popular than I could ever have imagined. So to say thanks for visiting and following Australian Haiku, here's one of my favourite bee photos from an earlier post. Cheers, Dalloway
