Wattle Spring The idea of only 4 equal seasons is a euro-centric notion that doesn’t apply in much of the world. Some places have three seasons one of which is ‘dust’. Aboriginal  Australians often thought in terms of six seasons tied in to what food was available at each time. I think of wattle blooming as the herald of the local spring and today is a perfect August spring day and our acacia is blooming wonderfully after building up to it for a month or so. A kind of golden grace. www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/  #floralfriday   #HOME   #seasons   #RvK

traditional style - A woman, high on the Tibetan plateau mixes a bunny motif with her local attire. #Tibet   #Plateau   #style   #travelphotography  Her cheek colouring however speaks of the the harsh and cold climate, rather than fashion. She runs a business selling prayer flags for which there is a very ready market in Tibet. www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0 #RvK
