Ballet in the Botanical Gardens

My friend, professional photographer (Captured by Kahdi) and I headed over to Darwin’s Botanical Gardens the other day for a photo shoot. I wore my prettiest dress and took my old pointe shoes (the ones that don’t fit properly – ouchy!).

There’s a special meaning to photographs on and around this tree. I used to climb it as a kid. We all did, all my family and friends. I have a photo of a 9 yr old me up on the tree. Must dig it out. Anyway, here is a selection of the gorgeous photos my friend took of me.






I just want to say, the tree was quite slippery from wet bark (Hey, middle of the Wet Season, everything’s slippery!) so I had very firmly perched my bottom against that knoll of the tree!CBK_1590CBK_1592

Finally, a use for my not-right-for-me-feet pointe shoes!
