Break on through to the other side by Kitsmumma

Break on through to the other side by 

My son has just completed his first lot of swimming lessons. These are his little feet, breaking through the waters surface.

Untouched photograph shot on 35mm with a disposable waterproof toy camera that I picked up for $6 in one of those cheapo shops.

I’m off to the coast for the long weekend, Happy Australia Day everyone, see you next week.

My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.
