This is where our adventure started. Shortly after we had landed in Western Australia in 2013, my husband’s brother drove us to Kings Park. Kings Park is one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner city parks. To be honest, we did not see much. It was late winter afternoon, so the darkness surrounded whole area. However for us, it was the most incredible view of the city ever.
When I look back on the photo taken on that day, it was completely dark. You can think, once it gets dark in a city, the artificial lights come on and create the opportunity for some stunning shots. This is wrong. During the weekends most of building lights are off in Perth.
