The Ecchoing Green

These are photos taken in the twilight in December 2011, during a public Christmas concert in Victoria Gardens, East Perth. The children were playing on the grassy hill near the river, mostly more interested in playing on the slopes and sliding down the hill on pieces of cardboard than in the entertainment on offer. The way the different age groups interacted, and their free play reminded me of William Blake’s poems about children’s creative use of public space. Click on thumbnails.
