Signs of home (III): Kangaroos

{Aussie kangaroo souvenirs in a Chinatown shop window, Fortitude Valley, Queensland}

I spent a morning taking photos around Fortitude Valley, for the new cards I'm working on and for ...hmm... I have a feeling I'll use them for something else, I just don't know what it is yet. I think I'll spend a while looking at the images, playing with them, and see what comes of it.

It's strange to see all these Australian souvenirs now, as a non-tourist "tourist". I find myself looking at plush koalas and thinking "Awwwww..." then– "waaait a second!" Seriously, I almost get sucked in.

It's even stranger to feel like a stranger in your own town. But that's a whole other conflict.
