Monday Melbourne: XCI, October 2005
Russell Degnan

Cricket season starts this weekend (ok, technically last weekend, but it rained, as usual). This isn't my ground but Princess Park. Taken December 2002

Green & blue
A beautiful start to the day. I particularly like the shadow at the base of the main tree.

You have achieved the 1/3 land vs 2/3 sky, which was the signature feature of the painter in the Dutch Masters who had the funny cow beside the tree. Lucky there are no cows in Princess Park.

If I was painting...
...I'd put a cow in.

As a pastiche on Louis Buvelot if nothing else.

Princess?
Or Princes? The one in Carlton, that is. I need to be sure about these things, you understand.

Naice!
Very nice, young man. However, isn't 2002 quite a time ago? I guess pictures are timeless though...

Good point
Tony, well spotted.

Tom, only in relative terms, and I haven't taken the camera out for a while.

Hard wicket played. I took 3/23 in the thirds.
I still hurt.

So how did you go?
Bruce  10th October, 2005 16:57:28  

Didn't
First week was washed out across the VTCA. Second week the council (Wyndham) didn't prepare a wicket down at Hoppers. I think that means we win by forfeit. My aches and paisn are postponed another week

Mate, we had 4 kids under 15 and the club nuffie. There was no one to come after me. Dissappointed I didn't get us all the way there.

It was the GF replay and so we were doubly stoked to beat up on them again.
