Adelaide: A Reunion of Friends

After we indulged in the serenity for a week in Kangaroo Island, we caught the ferry back to Adelaide, the place of my birth and my youth and adolescence.

I had the opportunity to catch up with friends that I had left behind reluctantly, 3 and a half years ago.

I tried not to take my camera everywhere as I wanted to soak in all of the laughs and moments and capture them in my memories.

I did have to take out my camera on this particular day as we met with several friends in a park and I had an itch to create.

As soon as we got there, the ladies and the men, almost on auto-pilot, separated and although I have no idea what the men discussed, we discussed photography and babies. I think sometimes it is an instinct of mothers to tell their birth stories. It is a moment that is so monumental that no matter how different the stories, we can all relate.

As we chatted away, the kids played make-believe and I made the rookie mistake of pretending to be a zombie and got chased with sticks and other make shift zombie-killer weapons.
