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

Hey folks.  I suspect life's going to get a little busy for me down here in Sydney, so I may whip up a few less haiga this year.  I'll see how it goes.  I will try to visit your sites as often as I can.

And here's a link to a couple of goldfish haiga that havent been posted on my blog but can be found at HaigaOnline, if you're interested. 

There's not nearly enough ku about goldfish in the world I reckon.
